Harrison Ford reacts to Carrie Fisher heart attack: 'I'm shocked'


Harrison Ford is thinking of his "Star Wars" co-star Carrie Fisher this Christmas.

The Han Solo actor, who last appeared by her side on the big screen in 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," released a statement on the situation Saturday, joining Mark Hamill and a number of other Hollywood stars voicing their support for the iconic actress and screenwriter.

"I'm shocked and saddened to hear the news about my dear friend," Ford said in a statement released to the media. "Our thoughts are with Carrie, her family and friends."

Fisher, who most famously played princess-turned-general Leia in the "Star Wars" franchise, suffered a heart attack on a transatlantic flight Friday. Her brother, Todd Fisher, said that same day that she was "out of emergency" and in stable condition at the UCLA Medical Center, where she was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit, Todd told CNN late Friday.

Other "Star Wars" cast members, new and old, took to Twitter to react to the news.

Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott told TheWrap that "at 12:11 p.m., the LAFD responded to LAX International Airport gate 74 for a patient on an inbound flight on cardiac arrest. Paramedics were standing by for the plane's arrival and provided advanced life support and aggressively treated and transported patient to a nearby hospital."
