Rest in Peace - Actor & Writer Carrie Fisher Has Passed Away at Age 60

It's with a heavy heart that we must report this sad news today. Actor and writer and script doctor (and dog lover) Carrie Fisher has died. After suffering a major heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles, she was taken to a hospital but was unable to recover. Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd has confirmed the news to places such as Hollywood Reporter and NY Times, stating that she "passed away at 8:55 this morning. She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly." Fisher is most well known/loved for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga, but she has also worked extensively on scripts and did lots of writing later in her life (including many novels/books, most notably her memoir Wishful Drinking). Rest in peace.

R.I.P. Carrie Fisher. A brilliantly funny, talented woman. We will miss your humor now more than ever.

I'm deeply saddened at the news of Carrie's passing. She was a dear friend, whom I greatly respected and admired. The force is dark today!

She was the brightest, funniest, bravest, kindest, cleverest and sweetest person I ever knew. A crushing blow to lose @carrieffisher

We just lost a great ally for mental health and addiction. Be strong, be as strong as she'd want you to be. Rest in paradise @carrieffisher

What an amazingly multitalented woman.
