Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia
In July 2015, Carrie Fisher
, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford gathered at the San Diego Comic-Con for likely the biggest panel in the convention's history. The panel was about Star Wars: The Force Awakens
, the first new live-action Star Wars
movie in 10 years and the first with the Original Trilogy cast in over three decades. In the intervening years, the three stars had paved very different careers. Fisher became the wittiest person in Hollywood, pulling back the curtain in books to reveal that the movie industry wasn't as clean as its image. Ford became one of the most famous leading men in Hollywood history. Hamill became a premiere voice actor, defining the voice of Batman's The Joker for a generation of children.
On December 27, less than a week after suffering a heart attack, Fisher died at age 60. She had already finished filming Star Wars: Episode VIII
and was on a book tour for The Princess Diarist
, a book that revealed
Fisher had an affair with Ford while they made the original Star Wars
Aside from playing Leia in The Force Awakens
, Fisher's most recent acting credits included episodes of Amazon's Catastrophe
, which was filmed in London. She also voiced Angela on Family Guy
. Fisher was also a script doctor and wrote the script for These Old Broads
(2001), which starred her mother, Debbie Reynolds.
