Carrie Fisher (1956-2016)

What a year... after suffering a heart attack last week on a plane, it seemed that actress Carrie Fisher was out of danger and recovering but sadly, she passed away at 60-years-old. And it's sad, because having played the iconic role of Princess Leia in 'Star Wars', we all loose someone from our childhood.

She obviously did more than that and i'm not meaning other roles, but she was a spokeperson for people struggling with mental illness and drug addiction, because she publicly was one herself. Her 'fuck it' attitude was what made her stand out as a person and what many admired about her is that she had no shame about her conflicted past. For me, apart from the movie, she was my favorite toy from the bunch of 'Star Wars' little figures that my brother had.

Behind she leaves a legacy in the form of a badass role playing a princess that was a rebel one, so far away from Disney's princesses type, the admiration to her persona for being brave enough to speak out loud about her weakness and a daughter (Billie Lourd) that has just started her same profession, and i hope she keeps on going. After the cut i've posted a bunch of amazing photos of Carrie Fisher and her mom actress Debbie Reynolds, hanging out with the cast of 'Star Wars', with her first husband singer Paul Simmon, with 'Postcards from the Edge' co-stars Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine, and with her daughter Billie.
