Carrie Fisher rocked the silver screen as Princess Leia in the famous film Star Wars. The force has left her as she succumbed to the massive heart attack that struck her on a plane over the weekend.
“Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Hollywood royalty who soared to fame as a wise-cracking intergalactic princess, died Tuesday, four days after suffering a massive heart attack.
Fisher, 60, never regained consciousness after going into cardiac arrest aboard a plane around noon Friday while traveling from London to Los Angeles to promote her latest memoir.
“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother, Carrie Fisher, passed away at 8:55 this morning,” Fisher’s family spokesman, Simon Halls, said in a statement Tuesday.
Fisher’s actress mother, Debbie Reynolds, 84, called her daughter “beloved and amazing.”
