The stars were out in full force at the Star Wars: The Last Jedi premiere in Hollywood. But there was one beloved face noticeably missing.
Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, passed way on December 27, 2016. She had already filmed her scenes for this newest film, but would never make it to the premiere.
Even though Carrie couldn’t walk the carpet, her friends, co-stars, and daughter Billie Lourd, who also stars in the new movie, carried her spirit with them.
So did Carrie’s beloved dog, Gary, who showed up to the premiere all decked out in costume, and totally stole the show.
Carrie loved her 6-year-old bulldog more than almost anything else. Her social media accounts were loaded with pictures of the sweet pup, and a touching image of him waiting for her to come home after her death broke hearts all around the world.
Gary went to the premiere along with Carrie’s former assistant, who says the dog “perked up” when he heard his beloved mom’s voice on screen. Gary even “posted” a picture to his very own Instagram account of him watching his late mom on screen for one last time.
Carrie Fisher is sorely missed, but Gary’s love for her shows that she will always live on through her art, humor, and love.
