ORLANDO, FL (CBS SF/AP) - Mark Hamill says he's still grieving over Carrie Fisher's death, but sharing memories of his late friend and co-star with fans at Star Wars Celebration is "part of the process that I need to move on."

The Oakland-native led an hour-long tribute to Fisher on Friday evening at the event in Orlando, Florida. He called Fisher "my beloved space twin" and said they were also great friends off-screen.

He said they even shared a steamy make-out session once.
