I have no words.
When I heard about her heart attack I had hope she could recover, but I was worried when I heard about the length of the flight. Her drug use in the 80's was extensive, saying she didn't even remember shooting a lot of the movies. Unfortunately that still takes its toll no matter how sober you become later in life.
She had the best sense of humor of her Star Wars compatriots (and that's saying something) and it really is a great loss for all of us that she's not going to continue bringing the franchise back down to earth for us. Of course she was iconic as the princess who knows how to use a blaster, and what she added was much more than just a nice set of buns. I was looking forward to her contribution to the continuing saga.
Rest in Peace.
I too was wondering if it was her extensive drug use that weakened her heart at such an early age. So sad.
I would assume so. Cocaine has a terrible effect on the heart, especially if used in one's teens while it is still in development. I just finished reading The Princess Diarist. It's more of an addendum to her earlier autobiographies which I have yet to read, but I was really impressed by how frank, humble, intelligent and funny she really was. Ms. Fisher was my first crush, followed by Julie Newmar and Yvonne Craig. She contributed a great deal to my life with her performance in the Star Wars trilogy. I wish I could have thanked her. May she rest in peace.
Very sad news. Rest in peace, Carrie.
It's been such a shit couple of days with the passing of Rick Parfitt and George Michael. I was really hoping she would pull through, such a shame. RIP.
Very sad news, I was hoping she would pull through. You will be forever missed Princess Lea
Rest in peace. So sad.
Poor Debbie Reynolds!
This was heartbreaking and she was in stable condition too. I really thought she was going to make it.
Rip Carrie. Too young to die.
Another terrible day for 2016. I'm just ready for this year to end.
Yes, sadly, she was a terrible drug addict for a long time. I seen a picture of her a few years back and she was still smoking cigarettes.. So, iam sure all that took its toll. plus she gained a lot of weight over the years. that's not good for the heart.
She was a talented actress, a bitingly entertaining writer and a genuine wit, something in short supply nowadays. I feared this would be the outcome as she had a lot of factors going against her, plus, women strangely don't do as well statistically with first heart attacks as men. She was an icon among STAR WARS fandom but so much more in total. My heart goes out to her many friends, daughter and Mother. I can only imagine how painful it is to outlive your children. Rest In Peace.
What a loss. She was the first strong female lead I encountered in SFF as a kid, and I'll always remember her.
I'm still in shock. Carrie Fisher actually managed to survive her drug addiction and overcome her bipolar disorder. She became a vocal supporter of mental health for the rest of her life. She also lived to tell a story many people in Hollywood didn't get a chance to when their drug addictions consumed them.
Also my grandfather smoked for 60 years and he's 88. I seriously doubt smoking did much.
This was the worst death of the year for me. George Michael hit me hard, but this just knocked me right out. Fuck I'm actually so sad right now. I can't even look at the Star Wars posters on my wall.
I always thought she was one of the toughest female leads. Princess Leia fought back as much as the guys did, she was sassy, confrontational, brace, determined. She was one of the strongest female leads and my favorite character. She was just such a huge part of pop culture this feels like such a massive loss.
Fuck you 2016. Seriously.
Devastated! I will miss her humor and sharp wit. There is this little movie she did in 1990 with Rosanna Arquette called "Sweet Revenge". It's a favorite of mine. Watching it, and hearing her character's dialogue, you get the feeling she wrote the words herself. There are some great zingers in there. She'll be missed. She's one of those people you just think are going to be around forever. Damn.
The year isn't done with us. Richard Adams (Shardik, The Plague Dogs, and of course Watership Down) was very recently announced as having passed on Christmas Eve.
Carrie's mother, Debbie Reynolds, has just passed away. I can't imagine the pain that family is going through right now.
