  Carrie Fisher, the actress who gave us the iconic character of Princess Leia, has died. She had a massive heart attack on Friday, December 23, 2016 on a flight from London to LAX. She had been rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. Fisher died on Tuesday, December 27. She was 60 years old. “She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly,” her daughter Billie Lourd said. “Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.” She became beloved by geek culture as Princess Leia Organa in the original Star Wars trilogy and then for reprising the role as General Leia for The Force Awakens in 2015.
   Fisher had many popular supporting roles and memorable cameos in other movies and as a writer she helped improve popular movie scripts. She also wrote about her life, dealing with mental health issues, and addiction in several books. Members of the Star Wars family and many other celebrities have taken to Twitter and social media outlets to express their grief.

  • This shocked me, especially when I heard her mother also died.. I'll never forget going to downtown Vancouver and watching the first Star Wars movie. I had crush on her back in the day.. Thanks for sharing.

    • I shocked me too.... I stayed attached to CNN for any and all news on her. I too had a crush on her and I believe many other boys at that time.
