Wow! Carrie Fisher Who Played Princess Leia On Star Wars Has Passed Away
Wow! I am totally flabbergasted to learn that Carrie Fisher, the lady who played Princess Leia in Star Wars, has passed away. NPR reported on her passing away so you can read about it here: Passing Away Of A Great Actress. I remember when I was a kid living in upstate New York watching Star Wars with my childhood friends and all the good memories. It is very disappointing to see that the year 2016 has claimed so many great artists!
I remember Carrie Fisher in the very first Star Wars film and how young she looked compared to what she looked before she passed away. She looked pretty rough in her older days as if she had battled the whole world for years. It’s amazing how much she changed over the years due to some tough times she went through. I read a few articles where she had to battle addiction because she took prescription medication and drugs.
She Will Be Missed And Brought Many Smiles To My Childhood
Carrie Fisher brought many smiles to children and adults too with her role in Star Wars. The movie played an iconic role in many childhoods of my generation to so lose Carrie is a big blow. She was just 19 years old when she became famous due to the success of Star Wars. I remember when I was 19 years old and I didn’t know much about life at all then. I am much older and wiser now due to experience.
She made an appearance in the Star Wars Film “The Force Awakens” where she was a general. I think the director made her a general to give her a role that represented her strength. She looked totally different in her recent appearance in “The Force Awakens” because she battled addiction. It’s amazing how people change through time and how things never exactly stay the same. Yet, on the same token, some things never change no matter how much time has passed. One thing that has certainly not changed is that we all will die one day and that included Carrie Fisher. May the force be with you Carrie!
