Mark Hamill's Tweet To Carrie Fisher Remarks On How Awful 2016 Has Been — UPDATE
In the wake of Carrie Fisher's alleged heart attack on an airplane on Friday, her Star Wars co-star Mark Hamill has tweeted in support of Fisher. Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker in the iconic film franchise, tweeted about an hour after the news broke, writing, "as if 2016 couldn't get any worse... sending all our love to @carrieffisher." Hamill joins castmate Peter Mayhew (who played Chewbacca in the franchise), as well as The Force Awakens actor Gwendoline Christie, in tweeting his thoughts, prayers, and well wishes for Fisher.
Fisher reportedly suffered a "massive heart attack" on Friday, Dec. 23, when flying from London to L.A. (Bustle has reached out to Fisher's rep for comment, but has not heard back at the time of publication.)
Update, 10:27 p.m. EST: Fisher is reportedly currently in intensive care and her condition remains "unknown," according to Entertainment Tonight. Despite earlier reports, her brother, Todd, told ET, "We certainly do not know her condition, that's why she is in ICU. I'm sure everyone wants to speculate, but now is not the time for that."
Update, 7:23 p.m. EST: The Associated Press reported that Fisher is now in stable condition, according to her brother Todd Fisher. He told AP that she is "out of emergency" and stabilized, but he could not disclose further information.
Earlier: According to the LA Times, Fisher is in critical condition after she was rushed to the hospital when the flight landed. YouTube star Anna Akana claims to have been seated near Fisher on the plane and tweeted that Fisher "wasn't breathing for 10 minutes or so. They were administering CPR up until we landed."
In addition to Hamill, Mayhew, and Christie's tweets, there has been an outpouring of support from many, many stars on Twitter, including Christina Applegate, Donald Faison, Diane Warren, and more.
