Even though her role as the beautiful and rebellious Princess Leia defined her as an actress, Carrie was much more than that. Star Wars brought her fame and popularity, but it was her intelligence and personality that kept her relevant in the world.

It may come as surprise to some, but Fisher was also a great writer and a humorist. She wrote several novels, plays, and screenplays. In addition, Fisher was a public spokesperson on many pressing issues. In 2016, Harvard College gave the actress the Annual Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism because of her social activism:

Her forthright activism and outspokenness about addiction, mental illness, and agnosticism have advanced public discourse on these issues with creativity and empathy.
