Carrie Fisher's Family: Photos of the People Who Loved Her

Carrie Fisher's Family: Photos of the People Who Loved Her

Many of Ms. Fisher's line readings from that film have since become part of the cinematic canon: her repeated, nearly hypnotic exhortation, "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope"; her wryly unimpressed reaction when Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) arrives in disguise to rescue her from a detention cell: "Aren't you a little short for a storm trooper?"

Fisher, best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, suffered a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles last week and died on Tuesday at the age of 60.

"It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning", a statement from spokesman Simon Halls read.

She talks about her convoluted family tree - the result of being the spawn of romantically prolific Hollywood royalty - her recollections of Star Wars' astronomical success and its aftermath, and her own romantic travails.

A Boston Globe critic accused Fisher of being "boastful about her dysfunction" in the show, but I'd beg to differ with that assessment.

A talented screenwriter, Fisher has revised numerous scripts, including "Sister Act" (1992), "Outbreak" (1995) and "The Wedding Singer" (1998). "She was Princess Leia to the world but a very special friend to all of us. I hope it was George".

Fisher told her readers the addictions, heartbreak and mental illness she had endured amounted to a "fair share of challenging and unhappy experiences".

"I'd forgotten I wrote them".

Harrison Ford is remembering Carrie Fisher.

Fisher recently released her memoir, "The Princess Diarist", on November 22.

She had a number of minor roles in various films but she found herself unable to recapture the profile that Star Wars had given her.

Ms Fisher was married briefly to singer Paul Simon and is survived by actress Billie Lourd, a daughter whose father is talent agent Bryan Lourd.

She was due to appear in 2017 fantasy adventure "Wonderwell", according to the Internet Movie Database, although the status of the shoot was not immediately clear and it has no publicly announced release date.
