“No Words #Devastated,” her “Star Wars” co-star Mark Hamill tweeted.


“I’m deeply saddened at the news of Carrie’s passing. She was a dear friend, whom I greatly respected and admired. The force is dark today,” co-star Billy Dee Williams tweeted.


“I thought I had got what I wanted under the tree. I didn’t. In spite of so many thoughts and prayers from so many. I am very, very sad,” another fellow “Star Wars” co-star Anthony Daniels tweeted.


Fisher’s mom, famed actress Debbie Reynolds, has also reacted to the news via Facebook.

“Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter,” Reynolds wrote. “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carries Mother.”

“Carrie was one-of-a-kind…brilliant, original,” “Star Wars” co-star Harrison Ford wrote in a statement The Hollywood Reporter “Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely…My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her Mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her.”

“I have always stood in awe of Carrie,” director Steven Spielberg wrote. “Her observations always made me laugh and gasp at the same time. She didn’t need The Force. She was a force of nature, of loyalty and of friendship. I will miss her very much.”

On Friday reports said that the actress had suffered a “cardiac episode” onboard her flight from London to Los Angeles. On Monday, Reynolds shared a post on Twitter that her daughter was in stable condition and asked for prayers from her fans and friends. (RELATED: Carrie Fisher Dies At 60)
