Though loved by so many in the industry and in the world, Fisher never won an award for her acting accomplishments. She was the female face of Star Wars as Princess Leia. The star reads, “Carrie Fisher, May the Force Be With You Always, Hope.”
Fans adorned the star with flowers and candles, along with cinnamon buns resembling her famed hair in the franchise and a lightsaber. Her Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill tweeted out a picture of the memorial, saying, “She took a little piece of all of us with her.”
