Mark Hamill has been named as one of Disney’s highest honors, but misses his dear friend Carrie Fisher.
Hamill and Fisher were named Disney Legends during a ceremony Friday (July 14) at the company’s biannual fan convention, the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. He said Fisher would have been making him laugh at the event.
“Well, I wish Carrie were here,” he said. “She would be making me laugh and be off camera extending her middle finger — one of her favorite gestures.”
Fisher died unexpectedly in December. Hamill said she would want the event to be celebratory and not sad.
“I really wish she were here,” he said. “But, she would also want us to be having a good time and not be sad.”
“When they told me, I said are you sure they’re not wanting Mark Harmon or Jon Hamm or even Dorothy Hamill?” Hamill said.
Hamill, 65, reprises his role as Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which will be released December. Fisher also appears in the film as Skywalker’s sister, Leia Organa.
