Mark Hamill discovered a picture of what looked like Carrie Fisher’s Star Wars alter-ego in his hotel room.

The actress died aged 60 in 2016.

Hamill, 66, spotted the likeness to Princess Leia – complete with distinctive hairstyle – “looking over my shoulder” on the wall of a hotel.

“Sooooo…..” he wrote on Twitter.

“Look who I found looking over my shoulder in a painting on the wall of my London hotel room.

“Coincidence? I don’t think so! Always With Me.”

While @SamWatson replied: “Strange are the ways of the Force. Always with you she is.”

Fisher died in hospital four days after being taken ill on a flight to Los Angeles from London where she had been filming sitcom Catastrophe.
