Actress and author Carrie Fisher, most famous for her iconic role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies, died Tuesday after suffering a heart attack last week on a flight from London to Los Angeles. She was 60. Fisher, the daughter of pop singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds, landed her first film role as a teenager alongside Warren Beatty in Shampoo, then, at age 19, appeared as Princess Leia in the first Star Wars film. She later tapped into her insider’s view of Hollywood in semi-autobiographical books, including the bestseller Postcards from the Edge. She also went on to become a successful Hollywood script doctor.
