Things We Saw Today: Star Wars Colleagues and Friends Eulogize Carrie Fisher

So, yeah, there’s pretty much only one story that’s really resonating with us today, and that’s the passing of Carrie Fisher. As the day has gone on, Fisher’s friends and colleagues have been reacting to the news of her death publicly. Above, J.J. Abrams, who worked with her on The Force Awakens, said via the Bad Robot Twitter account, “What an unfair thing to lose her. How lucky to have been blessed with her at all.” Harrison Ford told Variety that “Carrie was one-of-a-kind…brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely. We will all miss her.” And in a heartbreakingly simple tweet, Mark Hamill responded with a photo of himself and Fisher saying “no words #Devastated.”
