Carrie Fisher given 'amazing' send-off in Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Carrie Fisher is given an "amazing" send-off in her final Star Wars film, according to co-star John Boyega. The London-born actor said he shares "many scenes" with the late actress in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and that the sci-fi franchise "keeps her alive". Fisher, who played the part of Princess - later General - Leia, died last December aged 60.
Her final film performance will be seen when the latest Star Wars blockbuster is released at the end of the year. Boyega, who played stormtrooper Finn in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, told US broadcaster ABC: "It sends her off in a very amazing way.
"She is still kept alive in this franchise and that's the beauty of it - she lives forever in a sense."
