The daughter of two of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the 1950s — actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher- has passed away at the age of 60. We all know and love her as the famous Carrie Fisher.
She will forever be my number one Princess Leia. She reportedly had a heart attack while traveling to Los Angeles from London. Medical personnel met United flight 935 upon arrival to assist the loving Princess.
Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott told TheWrap that “at 12:11 p.m., the LAFD responded to LAX International Airport gate 74 for a patient on an inbound flight on cardiac arrest. Paramedics were standing by for the plane’s arrival and provided advanced life support and aggressively treated and transported patient to a nearby hospital.”
She went straight to the local hospital, and was put into intensive care, to try and get her stable. But after a few days of trying to stay above the waters, she sadly stepped out of our lives.
The family spokesperson released a statement on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd: “It is with great sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother, Carrie Fisher, passed away at 8:55 this morning.”
Fisher was an amazing entrepreneur, to say the very least. She leaves behind one hell of a legacy. She was an actress in over 90 films, she wrote 11, herself. She even produced one. She also played herself in over 136 shows and documentaries. She also became a well known novelist, writing many stories. It is definitely safe to say that she will never be forgotten.
co-star and life long friend Ford said in a statement released to the media – “I’m shocked and saddened to hear the news about my dear friend. Our thoughts are with Carrie, her family and friends.”
I couldn’t have said it any better myself. R.I.P my original Princess!
