Carrie Fisher immortalized one of the most iconic movie roles in history, that of Princess Leia of the original Star Wars trilogy. On Tuesday, she turns 58, and her co-stars came out to help her celebrate the milestone.

Fisher was joined by original cast member Harrison Ford, newcomers Daisy Ridley and Adrien Brody, and director J.J. Abrams at Zuma restaurant in London, where the crew is filming Star Wars Episode VII, the continuation of the saga. The veteran actress will reprise her role as Princess Leia Organa, which she first played in 1977.
