Billie Lourd's subtle tribute to Carrie Fisher at Star Wars premiere

Billie Lourd's subtle tribute to Carrie Fisher at Star Wars premiere

"The late "Star Wars" actress" former assistant Corby McCoin - who now looks after her pet pooch Gary following the Hollywood star's death in December 2016 aged 60 - has admitted Carrie's supporters love seeing her four-legged friend at events and have encouraged her to keep taking him out.

"I want to dedicate tonight to Carrie", Johnson told the crowd. "I know she's up there right now flipping me the bird, saying, 'Damn it Rian, how dare you bring the mood down and make this night a solemn tribute.' So let's all have a blast together for Carrie".

Andy Serkis believes Carrie Fisher has left "an indelible mark" on the world in the wake of her passing.

Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, dressed similarly to her mother's famous Princess Leia character to celebrate her mom, too.

In between the Australia and South Africa home fixtures, India is scheduled to tour New Zealand (2 Tests, 3 ODIs, 5 T20Is). Since then, India have played against Pakistan only in ICC events, most recently in the Champions Trophy in England.

As BuzzFeed pointed out, Lourd also wore the same ring Fisher wore to the "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" premiere in 2015.

A sharp-eyed fan spotted an alien creature with a startling resemblance to the French bulldog in a picture from the set of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", which was released this month. "The places she goes to emotionally in it are going to mean a lot to the fans".

"It's so hard to talk about", she said. Fisher, who played the one and only Princess Leia in the franchise, finished shooting her scenes before her untimely death. "That was an element that I really wanted to get in the movie".
