Star Wars fans were left deeply saddened by the demise of their beloved actress Carrie Fisher. The Wishful Drinking author reportedly suffered a heart attack on a flight last week. Fisher rose to fame playing the role of Princess Leia Organa in the original Star Wars trilogy.
The original Star Wars franchise consists of three films in total — A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. She also reprised her role as Princess Leia in the latest Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). Even the eighth film of the series, Star Wars: Episode VIII, in which Fisher appears as Leia Organa, wrapped shooting in July and is now in post-production.
