Carrie Frances Fisher was a well-known American actress who was best-known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films, which landed her multiple award nominations. She also dabbled in voice acting, writing, and comedy in her time here on Earth until she passed away in 2016 from a heart attack.
She was born in 1956 and got her start in acting fairly early at the age of 18. She was born to Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, two actors and singers, who certainly gave Carrie the proper connections to getting started in the film business.
