A year after Carrie Fisher's death, some of the people who knew her best are paying tribute to the beloved actress.
Many celebrities and fans shared heartfelt messages about Fisher, best known for her role as Princess Leia in "Star Wars." Fisher died at age 60 just two days after Christmas in 2016, following a heart attack she had on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
Among those who remembered the actress on Wednesday was Mark Hamill, who appeared alongside Fisher in the iconic franchise as Luke Skywalker.
"Star Trek" icon William Shatner, who often engaged in playful public battles with Fisher about whose franchise was better, also shared a photo on Twitter of him and Fisher.
Craig Ferguson, who often interviewed Fisher on his late-night talk show, wrote that he will be "forever grateful to have known this most brilliant of humans," sharing a photo of the two of them together.
Many fans also took to social media to remember Fisher, sharing memories about her in "Star Wars," or thanking her for being so outspoken about mental illness. (Fisher suffered from bipolar disorder, depression and addiction.)
A day after Fisher's death last year, her mother, fellow actress Debbie Reynolds, died. Both actresses were memorialized last spring with a shared tombstone in Hollywood, California.
