Mark Hamill pays tribute to Carrie Fisher: 'No one's ever really gone'

Mark Hamill pays tribute to Carrie Fisher: 'No one's ever really gone'”

The dramatic coastal scenery of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way has been wowing audiences since the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi - the real-life Ahch-To, where the latest installment of the blockbuster series was filmed.

"We miss you more than ever", the caption said.

On 27 December 2016, Star Wars fans across the globe felt a disturbance in the Force as news broke that Carrie Fisher had passed away. In one interview he commented the character, which he first appeared as in 1977 film Stars Wars: A New Hope, was "not my Luke Skywalker".

He wrote on Instagram: "No one's ever really gone". But a week after he stirred up fan outcry against Last Jedi with his facile statement that "Jedis don't give up", Hamill took to Twitter to clear the air.

Despite both tragedies, family and friends came together over the holidays to celebrate both Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds memories. The 25-year-old actress wrote, "She drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra" using moon, boot, astrological sign, and plant emojis. The location scouts were so taken with Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way that key locations in counties Cork, Kerry, Clare and Donegal were handpicked to represent the planet Ahch-to in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And make no mistake, as Mark Hamill has alluded to in previous interviews, that brother-sister bond very much continued off-screen, and his long-time appreciation of the actress will never fade.

"I thought it was a fantastic script", Fisher said, before admitting that no one could have guessed the film's eventual popularity. "And she did. I love you times infinity".

Shatner also retweeted Hamill's tribute.
