Today, October 21, is the late, great Carrie Fisher’s birthday. While the legendary actress who brought Princess Leia Organa to life alongside Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker and Harrison Ford’s Han Solo is gone, her fans have still taken to Twitter to share their touching tributes for what would have been her 64th birthday.

Carrie Fisher entered eternal rest on December 27, 2016. Her final performance came after JJ Abrams and the crew of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker were able to use unused footage from past films to give the part she was born to play a fitting end in the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga.
Now on what would have been her 64th birthday, we are reminded that to her fans, she will always be with them in their hearts, and forever immortalized in film as the one and only Princess Leia.
On behalf of everyone here at Inside the Magic, we also like to say happy birthday Carrie Fisher, and thank you, again, for the memories and inspiration.
