Carrie Fisher's Star Wars co-stars, including Harrison Ford, are sending messages of support and love to the actress as she fights for her life.

The 60-year-old actress, who plays Leia in the hit film franchise, was rushed to a Los Angeles hospital Friday after suffering a heart attack aboard a plane flying from London. Her brother Todd Fisher told E! News hours later Carrie was being treated in the ICU.

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

Ford played Carrie's character's love interest Han Solo in the original Star Wars trilogy and in last year's sequel Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The actress revealed in her recent memoir, The Princess Diarist, that she and the actor had had an affair in real life. Carrie had returned from London Friday after promoting her book there.
