As many of you have heard by now, Carrie Fisher passed away Tuesday morning at they age of 60. Fisher suffered a heart attack on her flight from Heathrow, London to LAX, Los Angeles 15 minutes before it landed. Fans are heartbroken. Fisher delivered a phenomenal performance as the infamous Princess Leia. Rather than portraying Leia as a helpless princess, she was characterized with grit, boldness and most of all spunk.
You will be missed Carrie Fisher, and in the words of Yoda… “death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the force. Mourn them do not. Miss them do not.” Next years Star Wars Film, episode 8 has been fully filmed. So, we can still look forward to her performance in it. No doubt, similarly to the Batman franchise when Heath Ledger passed, episode 8 will only gain more popularity and viewers with her tragic passing.
After a rather tumultuous year throughout 2016, we are more than ready to welcome in 2017. Numerous entertainers including Alan Rickman, Florence Henderson, Alan Thicke, and now the iconic Carrie Fisher have passed away this year. So we’re currently counting down the hours to 2017!
