Beloved Star Wars Actress Passes

Carrie Fisher a well known actress known as Princess Leia in the star Wars franchise has passed away. Carrie was recently traveling from London to Los Angeles when she suddenly went into cardiac arrest.  She was admitted to the hospital and it was said that she was doing well from her mother Debbie Reynolds. Unfortunately Carrie took a down fall. At 8:55 this morning her daughter Billie Lourd confirmed that her beloved mother had earned her wings. Carrie Fisher was a hard working, whole hearted, selfless individual who had her fair shares of downfalls. She was well-known for her substance abuse problem at such a young age starting with marijuana then later stumbled upon cocaine and LSD. She never allowed this issue to stop her from her career.
She was an amazing actress, mother, daughter, sister and friend. Carrie not only played a big role in Star Wars. In 1980 she starred in The Blues Brother and The Man with one Red Shoe, she was the voice of Angela on Family Guy since 2005, she played a comedy role on 30 Rock in 2008, stopped by The Big Bang Theory as herself in 2014 and then continued to film The Force Awakens and next year’s Star Wars Episode VIII. She was also nominated for a pair of primetime Emmy Awards. Carrie Fisher will be missed profoundly. Please send out prayer and condolences to her family and friends. Rest in Peace Carrie.
