Carrie Fisher died at age sixty over the Christmas holiday. She was traveling back home from London. She had gone to London as part of her globe trekking book tour. Fisher suffered a heart attack on December 23rd in midflight and passed away few days later at a hospital in Las Angeles.

Fisher will forever be remembered in pop culture as the angsty Princess Leia from the original three Star Wars films as well as the recent The Force Awakens. Fisher has had a much larger role in the evolution of Hollywood in general both through her work as a script doctor and as a strong female role model for future generations of artists. Fisher has been open and painfully honest about her struggles with mental health illness and substance abuse. Other than her two successful autobiographies she turned her story into a heartfelt and humorous one woman show. The show was recently broadcast by HBO and is highly recommended viewing.

As a script doctor Fisher worked on many films from the 90’s to the 2000’s from Hook to Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Her acting carrier remained vibrant as well seeing her star in films from The Blues Brothers all the way to guest spots on Family Guy, Entourage, and Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce. She had already completed work on the followup film to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It seems fitting that the last time we will see her is back where it all began. Fisher is traveling to a galaxy far far away…
