Star Wars actor Warwick Davis said: “She was very, very honest and she was very, very down to earth, you know even though she was hugely famous, played this iconic character Princess Leia.
“When she walked the red carpet she was just the everyman, she was just… she didn’t let it go to her head.”
Fans around the world have also been paying tribute to Fisher, who died at the age of 60 after falling ill on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
Fan Daniel Barassi said: “The way she acted, the way she projected herself, there was just the strength within her and being a role model for every other girl. I mean, come on, girls had somebody to look up to. I didn’t just have Han Solo.”
Another fan, Nora Cubas, said: “Very empowering, empowering woman. You know, gives you strength, teaches us women that we can do better and anything possible. So, yeah, strength in women.”
In a facebook message, Carrie Fisher’s mother Debbie Reynolds thanked everyone for embracing what she called the “gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter”.
She added: “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carrie’s Mother.”
