May The Force Be With You: Carrie Fisher Died at 60
The world had not even recovered with the George Michael’s death, and now another huge blow had come to us. Carrie Fisher who was famous for her notable role as Princess Lea in Star Wars just died. The family’s spokesman, Simon Halls confirmed this last December 27 in his recent statement on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd.
“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,”
Fisher flew from London bound to Los Angeles last December 23 when she had a cardiac arrest. The flight paramedics removed her from the flight and rushed her to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and were put on a ventilator. However, four days later, her illness got the best of her and passed away.
There’s no doubt that the world mourned in grief and sorrow once again with the death of such a prominent figure. Let us take this time to reminisce Fisher’s flourishing career and contributions to the showbiz industry. Especially her epic roles and outstanding performance in the star-studded Star Wars movie franchise.
Carrie Fisher’s Surging Career
There’s no doubt that Fisher’s talent in acting is already an innate one. She was the son of the renowned entertainers Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher. Ever since she’s young, she’s been engaging in various films, theaters, and television series.
But Fisher’s didn’t let her acting talent go in a standstill by only depending on her inherited talent. She decided to escape Hollywood last 1973 to study career acting. She enrolled n the Central School of Speech and Drama in London to further improved her talent.
Reprising of Carrie Fisher in the Hollywood
Two years later after her study. she went back to Hollywood where she made her debut film in Warren Beatty-led Shampoo. Her debut film had also paved a way for her to star a role in the epic Star Wars movie franchise.
In 1977, she was lucky enough to be included in the first installment of the sci-fi film together with Harrison Ford. She played the role of Princess Lea. Suffice to say she was equally nervous that time since she was only 19 years old when the prominent role was given to her.
Her performance, however, received positive views from the audience. Her enormous success in playing Princess Lea’s role lead her to reprise in the second and third Star Wars film. And recently, she also reprised her role in the Force Awakens film. Unfortunately, the world didn’t expect to see that this will be her last time in reprising the role as Princess Lea in Star Wars.
How the World Left Speechless over Fisher’s Death
Several renowned actors, especially Fisher’s co-workers, had expressed their disbelief, shock, and disbelief when they heard the news. They never expected Fisher’s life to end that way. She’s always filled with enthusiasm that it was hard to believe she died from cardiac arrest. Let us hear some of the heartbreaking statements from her co-workers.
“Carrie and I have been friends most of our adult lives,” Star Wars creator George Lucas said in a statement. “She was extremely smart; a talented actress, writer, and comedienne with a very colorful personality that everyone loved. In Star Wars, she was our great and powerful princess — feisty, wise and full of hope in a role that was more difficult than most people might think. My heart and prayers are with Billie, Debbie, and all Carrie’s family, friends and fans. She will be missed by all.”
“Carrie was one-of-a-kind, brilliant, original,” Harrison Ford, who played Han Solo alongside Fisher, added in a statement. “Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely. My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her mother Debbie, her brother Todd and her many friends. We will all miss her.”
“I’m deeply saddened at the news of Carrie’s passing,” Fisher’s Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi co-star Billy Dee Williams wrote on Twitter. “She was a dear friend, whom I greatly respected and admired. The force is dark today!”
It is no doubt that we’ve lost another iconic figure before the year 2016 ends. We just hope this would be the last blow we’ve yet to endure this year. We expressed our deep condolences to the Fisher family and may the force be with Princess Lea as she entered the realm of angels.
