“Star Wars” icon Carrie Fisher will receive a well-deserved star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame next week

After a birthday dinner at Musso & Frank last Friday, my group of friends decided it would be fun to walk around the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard which is always a lot of fun – especially after a few martinis. One of my friends, when he came upon Lee Majors’ star, re-enacted the opening scene of The Six Million Dollar Man.

Anyway, this leads to a wonderful news item: Carrie Fisher is getting her very own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame just over six years after her death.

The writer/actress will receive the posthumous honor next week on Star Wars Day, May 4. Fisher’s daughter, actress Billie Lourd, will accept the star on behalf of her mom, and guest speakers will be announced soon.

Sharing news of the honor on Twitter Monday, Fisher’s Star Wars costar Mark Hamill, 71, wrote, “Long overdue & so well-deserved. #CarrieOnForever.”

na Martinez, producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, said in a statement, “Fans will be over the moon to know that their favorite movie princess Carrie Fisher will be honored with her star on the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame. Carrie will join her Star Wars costars and fellow Walk of Famers Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford on this historic sidewalk. I am happy to add, that her star is just a few feet away from the star of Mark Hamill and across the street from the star of her legendary mother Debbie Reynolds.”
