Actress Carrie Fisher of Star Wars fame has passed away at the age of 60 after suffering a ‘massive’ heart attack while traveling from London to Los Angeles. 
Fisher was perhaps best known for her role as Princess Leia in the blockbuster series from 1977 to 1983, but had other notable roles in films like When Harry Met Sally, Shampoo, and Blues Brothers. 
Born on October 21, 1956, the actress is the daughter of famed Hollywood couple Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher. She reportedly was a very quiet and “hid in books” as a child before she started her career at the age of 15. 
Though Fisher was best known as Princess Leia, her private life was well publicized, including her past drug use. She used these parts of her life, and others, in her work as a screenwriter and novelist. 
She leaves behind a brother, two half-sisters, her husband,  and a daughter, and will forever be remembered for her role in such a pivotal series.
