Carrie Fisher, A Real Princess

Laurence By Laurence Published on December 28, 2016

Just like all the Star Wars fans, I am saddened by the news of Carrie Fisher's Death. I was really excited about her appearances in the upcoming episodes. Fisher had wrapped filming her role in episode VIII (that will be released in December 2017) in July, and what an emotional experience it will be to see the princess on screen for the last time...

Carrie dropped out of school and ventured in the family business, for the love of acting and not lights...

Beyond her iconic role, we must say that Carrie Fisher was a courageous, funny, and smart woman. Carrie battled addiction and mental illness most of her life and discussed it publicly in her interviews and 8 books/novels making her a role model for many others. 

One of her Novels Postcards from the Edge was filmed and directed by Mike Nichols. The screenplay by Carrie Fisher is based on her 1987 semi-autobiographical novel of the same title. The film starred Meryl Streep, Shirley MacLaine and Dennis Quaid.

The film was critically acclaimed and currently holds a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 29 reviews.

Not enough can be said to describe this amazing woman, our unusual Princess still had so many words to say and write... 

Rest in Peace Carrie Fisher <3
