Carrie, the daughter of legendary actors Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, and got her breakout role in the blockbuster 1977 film, Star Wars and its sequels. Leia was called a princess, but Carrie definitely changed the definition of the title as this character. Leia was tough talking, no-nonsense and was not shy to teach the bad guys a lesson, whether it was in her thin white robe or a gold bikini. Carrie captured the hearts of every little boy and empowered every little girl in the late 70's and throughout the 80's, and still to this day made a huge impact in our lives as Princess Leia evolved into General Organa in the latest Star Wars installment, The Force Awakens in 2015. She had just finished filming her scenes for the upcoming Episode VIII installment.
Carrie was not only known for that iconic role, though. She also had parts in many other movies including When Harry Met Sally, Shampoo, The Blues Brothers, Hannah And Her Sisters, The Burbs, Soapdish, Hook, Austin Powers, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and many others. Carrie also wrote many best-selling novels including the semi-autobiographical Postcards From The Edge and her most recent memoir, The Princess Diarist.
We at ENR would like to express our deepest condolences to Miss Fisher's family, colleagues, friends and fans. She is now one with the Force.
