R.I.P. Actress, Writer and Humorist Carrie Fisher

We are devastated to learn that iconic actress, novelist, script doctor, and humorist Carrie Fisher has died at the age of 60 following suffering cardiac arrest aboard a flight from London to Los Angeles last Friday. (She had been hospitalized since then). Fisher of course is best known as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, but she also starred in a diverse array of projects ranging from The Blues Brothers to The Burbs to Postcards from the Edge — which was adapted from her own best-seller. The child of Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, she was Hollywood royalty whose tumultuous life and personal battles often became fodder for her work. We will have much more on Fisher in the days ahead, but for now take a moment and reflect on the impact she leaves behind.
