Carrie Fisher is Getting a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame
Nearly five years ago, Carrie Fisher suddenly passed away. However, she is about to be immortalized on one of Los Angeles’ most historic landmarks. The late Star Wars actress will receive her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2022.
The Walk of Fame Selection Panel of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce announced the full list of 2022 inductees earlier today. Fisher’s role as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars made her a household name in 1977. But beyond her film work, she was also recognized for her biting sense of humor, which manifested in her books Wishful Drinking and Postcards from the Edge, both of which detailed her history with substance abuse as well as her complicated relationship with her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds. Fisher made her last official appearance as Leia Organa in 2017’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which was dedicated to her memory. She also appeared in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in 2019 via archival footage.
Fisher isn’t the only geek icon getting a star on the Walk of Fame next year. Also on the list are fellow Star Wars actor Ewan McGregor and The Mandalorian and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Ming-Na Wen. Several other actors associated with the superhero genre, including Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Michael B. Jordan (Black Panther), Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man), Salma Hayek (Eternals), and Ant-Man co-writer Adam McKay will receive stars as well. Plus, the 2022 class also includes Watchmen stars Regina King and Jean Smart, The Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus, and Arrowverse architect Greg Berlanti.
