It hasn't been a year since Carrie Fisher died of heart attack; hence, her memories are still lingering in the hearts of her co-workers in "Star Wars." The late actress, who had brought to life Princess Leia, passed away a few days after she arrived in Los Angeles from London in December.

The 60-year-old star experienced a heart attack during the flight. After being admitted to the hospital for a couple of days, Fisher unfortunately died on the morning of December 27. Aside from her role as the first Princess Leia of the "Star Wars" franchise, Fisher was also known for her projects "Shampoo (1975)," "The Blue Brothers (1980)," "Hannah and her Sisters (1986)," and "When Harry Met Sally (1989)."

Remembering Princess Leia

During a recent interview, the cast and crew of "Star Wars" recalled their experiences working with the talented actress.

Daisy Ridley, who plays as Rey, said Fisher has served as her "inspiration" and "guiding light" in the growth of her character as well as in her improvement as an actress. Ridley also commended the late actress for living her life "the way she wanted to," revealing that Fisher is someone who will never apologize for something that she has done. Similarly, the veteran actress would even advise her not to "shrink away" whenever she feels like doing so.

John Boyega, on the other hand, shared Fisher has taught him to enjoy what he is doing instead of worrying what other people have to say. He added that the late actress regularly gave them her encouraging words which kept them going.

Meanwhile, Oscar Isaac, who was lucky enough to have shared a lot of screen time with Fisher for the upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi," recalled one of his scenes with the late actress wherein the latter had to slap him.
