Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
Last week it was reported that Carrie Fisher, best known for her portrayal as Princess Leia in the Star Wars series, suffered a heart attack on a flight from Los Angeles to London. It was later confirmed that she was in the hospital with a stable condition.
Earlier today family spokesperson Simon Halls told People, "It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning. She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly. Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.”
While many know her as Princess Leia Organa, Fisher appeared in other films, was a published author, and an advocate for mental health awareness.
You are one with the force, and the force is one with you.
