The loss of Carrie Fisher is still being felt by many movie fans all across the globe. Entertainment Weekly is releasing a special remembrance issue honoring Fisher. The issue will include a special essay from Mark Hamill, a longtime friend of Fisher’s and co-star throughout the Star Wars franchise.
The issue will also focus on the life of Debbie Reynolds, who tragically died one day after Fisher. Reynolds was known for her roles in Singing in the Rain, How The West Was Won and The Unsinkable Molly Brown.
On Christmas day last week, it was reported that the Star Wars actress was in stable condition, but then died two days later from cardiac arrest. A day after, her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds was taken to the hospital after suffering from a stroke. She passed away that same night. Fisher was 60 and Reynolds was 84.
Reynolds and Fisher were preparing for Carrie’s funeral arrangements when the elder suffered a stroke. Todd Fisher said that Carrie’s death was too much for Reynolds to handle. “She said, ‘I want to be with Carrie.’ And then she was gone.”
