Last Fan's Selfie Taken With Carrie Fisher Emerges (Photos)

A fan of "Star Wars" has posted one of the last selfies taken with Hollywood actress Carrie Fisher before she died. 

Jonny Kennedy of Marylebone, London, had taken the picture with the 60-year-old actress on Dec. 22 in London.

Donning a roll neck top, a black coat, and two large gold necklaces, she smiled into the camera as she rested her head against the fan's head, the Daily Mail reports.

The Star Wars icon was struck with a heart attack on her flight back to Los Angeles the following day. She subsequently died from the attack at the Ronald Reagan UCLA hospital in Los Angeles four days after falling ill on board the transatlantic flight. 

Her mother, Debbie Reynolds, passed away on Dec. 28 -- a day after her daughter -- while reportedly planning Fisher's funeral.

The 84-year-old was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital from son Todd Fisher's Beverly Hills home while suffering a reported stroke. 

Fisher had recently acquired a property in London and was set to start a new stage of her life in the British capital. 

"She had just bought a place in London" and was "looking forward" to spending "more time there," a friend said, Entertainment Tonight reports.

Fisher had been spending ample time in Europe in 2016. 

The 60-year-old posted pictures of herself having tea with her dog, Gary, in the summer, as well as hanging with local policemen. The star reportedly found plenty of work in the country. 

The former flame of Dan Aykroyd and Paul Simon had appeared on "The Graham Norton Show" in early December. 

Fellow celebrities and fans have been posting tributes in her honor since her passing. 

"Carrie was one-of-a-kind... brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life bravely... My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her Mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her," Harrison Ford said.

Her "The Force Awakens" co-star, Daisy Ridley, stated: "I'm devastated at this monumental loss. How lucky we all are to have known her, and how awful that we have to say goodbye."

"It's never easy to lose such a vital, irreplaceable member of the family, but this is downright heartbreaking," said her "Star Wars" co-star, Mark Hamill, on Facebook. 

"Carrie was one-of-a-kind who belonged to us all- whether she liked it or not. She was OUR Princess, da** it, & the actress who played her blurred into one gorgeous, fiercely independent & ferociously funny, take-charge woman who took our collective breath away. 

"Determined & tough, but with a vulnerability that made you root for her & want her to succeed & be happy. She played such a crucial role in my professional & personal life, & both would have been far emptier without her. 

"I am grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness & even the bratty, self-indulgent crap my beloved space-twin gave me through the years. Thanks Carrie. I love you."
