Short Fisher Bio

Carrie was born to a singer father (Eddie Fisher) and an actress mother (Debbie Raynolds), on October 21, 1956.

The actress, writer, and humorist, who passed on in December last year, was largely known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars films.

Although she struggled with alcohol and drug abuse around the 80s, she came back in 1987 with her hit book, "Postcards from the Edge." The book was such a success that it was later adopted into a movie.

The movie went on to get her a BAFTA Award for Best Adapted screenplay nomination.

Crew On Her

Although the 60-year-old dies last December, she had the opportunity to finish recording her last role as Leia before her death. Hence, fans have something to look forward to this Christmas.

In a recent behind-the-scenes reel unveiled for Star Wars, director, Rian Johnson, spoke on Carrie’s final performance as General Leia. He told Good Morning America that:

Carrie gives a really beautiful performance in the film.

Co-actor John Boyega, who plays Finn in the movie, also revealed that he worked very closely with the late legend in the upcoming movie. He also said:

This movie, it sends her off in an amazing, amazing way, ... And she is still kept alive in this franchise. That's the beauty of it: She lives forever in a sense. - he said

We quite agree with John here. Carrie Fisher will always be remembered for her roles.
