There is a great disturbance in the force. Princess Leia Organa has passed away after a long hard fight against the Empire.
After suffering a cardiac episode on a flight from London to Los Angeles, on December 23rd, 2016, Carrier Fisher of Star Wars fame has died. She was 60 years old.
Fisher made her film debut in Shampoo with Warren Beatty but found her most iconic role two years later in 1977 with A New Hope at 19.
According to People magazine:
Family spokesman Simon Halls released a statement to PEOPLE on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd:
“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,” reads the statement.
“She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly,” says Lourd, 24. “Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.”
Fisher was flying from London to Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 23, when she went into cardiac arrest. Paramedics removed her from the flight and rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for a heart attack. She later died in the hospital.
Our prayers are with the family of Carrier Fisher and those who love her throughout the years.
