Daughter of famous pop artiste Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds, Carrie was also considered to be the child of Hollywood herself. Her greatest hit, Star Wars, released in 1977 and changed her life for the better in many ways, becoming an overnight success and making Fisher and overnight star.

According to NY Times, Ms. Fisher established Princess Leia as a damsel who could very much deal with her own distress, whether facing down the villainy of the dreaded Darth Vader or the romantic interests of the roguish smuggler Han Solo.

After winning the fans’ appreciation and love, Fisher always brought the rough and tough edgy vibe to Princess Leia’s character and never let her come off as hopeless. Her confession of love to Han Solo in the most tender fashion and her sweet escape from Jabba the Hut made her the apple of so many fans’s eyes.
As for how Carrie Fisher’s thought process worked, here’s an excerpt she wrote in The Princess Diarist: “Perpetual celebrity — the kind where any mention of you will interest a significant percentage of the public until the day you die, even if that day comes decades after your last real contribution to the culture — is exceedingly rare, reserved for the likes of Muhammad Ali.”

Fisher had a very outgoing personality and always stood up to the claims that were made for or against her. She admitted in the Princess Diarist that she had an affair with Harrison Ford, who at the time was married, during the filming of the first Star Wars movie. Later on, Ms. Fisher also accepted intoxication and using drugs such as Percodan and LSD throughout the 1970s and 80s, while she was addicted to Cocaine during the shooting of ‘The Empire Strikes Back’.

Carrie had a very prominent Twitter following and was very active, always communicating with her fans in a playful mood, using lots of emoji. Last year, after the Force Awakens was released, she tweeted: “Please stop debating about whether OR not [eye emoji] aged well. unfortunately, it hurts all 3 of my feelings. My BODY hasn’t aged as well as I have.”
