Today marks a sad day for fans of all things Star Wars with the passing of Carrie Fisher, most famously known for her portrayal of Leia Organa, a princess, rebel and general. Fisher suffered a cardiac arrest on December 23rd and succumbed earlier today. Players in Star Wars: The Old Republic are gathering on Alderaan, the location of the Organa estate. Imgur user Bericurra has posted lots of images and a Reddit thread has opened for players to post other gatherings.
“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,” reads the statement.
“She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly,” says Lourd, 24. “Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.”
