Carrie Fisher Dead at 60 | Carrie Fisher Talks Original Star Wars

Carrie Fisher, the actress and writer, who starred as Princess Leia of “Star Wars,” has died Tuesday morning at age 60.

Fisher died Tuesday morning after suffering a serious heart attack on Friday December 23, 2016 while a passenger on flight from London to Los Angeles.

Fisher was rushed by paramedics from Los Angeles International Airport to UCLA Medical Center immediately after the plane landed around noon PT Friday December 23.

Fisher had been in London filming episodes of the Amazon/Channel 4 comedy “Catastrophe.”

Fisher was the daughter of actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher, whose marriage famously broke up when Eddie Fisher had an affair with Elizabeth Taylor. Her mother’s career struggles after her 1950s fame were a childhood stress for Carrie Fisher.

Fisher got her start in entertainment at age 15, when she appeared alongside Reynolds in the 1973 Broadway revival of “Irene.” Two years later she made her film debut in the hit comedy “Shampoo” starring Warren Beatty, Julie Christie and Goldie Hawn.

She rose to stardom with the premiere of the first Star Wars movie, “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” in 1977. Her character Princess Leia first appeared in the film as the fearless leader of the planet Alderaan, agent of the Rebel Alliance and member of the Imperial Senate, with romantic interest with Hans Solo, played by Harrison Ford.

The first Star Wars film earned six Oscars and launched a franchise of epic proportions. Two sequels followed “A New Hope” — “The Empire Strikes Back” in 1980 and “Return of the Jedi” in 1983 — the original trilogy.

Three prequels were released years later between 1999 and 2005, in which Fisher was not cast. Carrie Fisher starred as an older character in a sequel trilogy, which was announced in 2015 with “The Force Awakens.”

In November 2016 Fisher revealed that she had a three-month affair with her co-star Harrison Ford while filming the original “Star Wars.” Harrison Ford was then married to Mary Marquardt. “It was so intense,” Fisher said of the secret affair. “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”

Fisher also starred in “The Blues Brothers” (1980), “Garbo Talks” (1984), “Hannah and Her Sisters” (1990), “Soapdish” (1991), “Austin Powers” (1997) and “Scream 3” (2000). Her many TV appearances included guest shots on “Frasier,” “Sex and the City,” “Entourage,” “Smallville,” “Weeds,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.”

Fisher was also a writer for TV shows “Roseanne” and “Young Indiana Jones.” Fisher co-wrote the 2001 ABC TV movie “These Old Broads,” which starred Debbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Taylor, Shirley MacLaine and Joan Collins as actresses enjoying a sudden career revival.

Fisher’s is survived by her mother, daughter and brother, Todd.
