It has been reported that Mark Hamill is honoring the one year anniversary of Carrie Fisher's untimely death. Hamill remembered Fisher with a touching tribute to the late actress on Wednesday. According to the Huffington Post, Fisher died one year ago after suffering from a heart attack at age 60. 

He posted photos of the two together alongside a drawing that depicted Fisher holding her dog, Gary. The caption read that "no one's ever really gone..." and added several hashtags, including "#AlwaysWithUs" and "#CarrieOnForever." 

People Magazine writes that Hamill and Fisher became very close after meeting on the first Star Wars in 1977 when the two were both still rising stars.

The onscreen siblings eventually reunited in the latest movie where Fisher had several poignant moments with the cast, including her daughter Billie Lourd, who made her debut in the 2015 Star Wars movie "The Force Awakens" alongside her mother. Lourd, 25, posted a tribute to her mother on the day "The Last Jedi" came out. 

Earlier today, another Star Wars actor passed away at age 87. 

It has been reported by BBC News that London-born actor Alfie Curtis, who was famous for playing Dr. Evazan in "Star Wars: A New Hope," has died at age 87. He was also known for playing in the 1980 film "The Elephant Man" and the 80s UK series "Cribb." 

The late actor's Star Wars character was famous for threatening Luke Skywalker at Mos Eisley Cantina in the first of the original trilogy. He famously told Luke, "You just watch yourself. We're wanted men. I have the death sentence on 12 systems." 

Mark Hamill tweeted a touching tribute to Alfie Curtis, claiming that he was a funny and kind man who helped provide one of the most memorable scenes of the Star Wars movies. 

"Alfie Curtis made the #Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina scene (one of the most memorable I've ever been a part of) even MORE memorable. As horrific as he was on-camera, off-camera he was funny, kind & a real gentleman," he wrote.

"Thanks Alf- you'll be missed. #RIP."
