First of all, Fisher was born in Burbank, Los Angeles, California and her parents were Debbie Reynolds a Hollywood star and the singer Eddie Fisher.
When she was only two years of age, her parents split out when Eddie Fisher left Debbie Reynolds for Elizabeth Taylor.

While the latest film of the saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is rocking the box office, fans around the world are paying tribute to the legend who was more known for her role as Princess Leia in five movies of the Star Wars saga.
Carrie Fisher is remembered today and is still heartbreaking going to see The Last Jedi and see her for the last time.
Her career on T.V. officially begun in 1969 in the Debbie Reynolds and the Sound of Children musical. Then, her career took off, and a couple of years later he was cast in Star Wars (1977) as the Princess Leia Organa.
The plan back then was to film one movie only, but the first film had a massive success than George Lucas went down for two more films starring Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo) and Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa).
After the success, she came back as Princess Leia in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi, and the world of films changed forever.
Fisher became one of the most popular Hollywood icons back then in the 80s but also, she was, and comic conventions and stuff and he had her fans all over the world as her co-stars Hamill and Ford.

Carrie Fisher is best known for her role in the Star Wars but Fisher’s career is most considerable than only that, she made her film debut in Shampoo (1975).
And after that, appearing in the George Lucas’s blockbuster was the perfect opportunity to Carrie to prove the world she was made of something substantial.
After the success of Star Wars, Carrie had a lot of proposals to appear on T.V. and movies.
She appeared in The Blues Brothers in 1980, and the same year she looked in The Empire Strikes Back. She worked in Under the Rainbow a year after that.
Being the daughter of one of the biggest villains of the film industry, gave Carrie Fisher just the plus. Yes, I’m talking about Darth Vader.
The major success of the Star Wars saga was the character played by David Prowse and the story of that galaxy far, far away starring by Fisher, Hamill, and Ford.
Many people think that Carrie Fisher was just a character from one of the most famous sagas of all the time, but the truth is that she was a writer too, books and screenplays.
For example, she wrote Postcards from the Edge, a book that she wrote after struggled with her drugs and alcohol addictions.
This book was published during 1987, and it was adapted into a motion picture by Carrie Fisher herself.
She wrote the screenplay, and Mike Nichols directed it.
Was released by Columbia Pictures in 1990 having Merryl Streep in the leading role. It is a fabulous book, and the movie was pretty impressive too.
It is about this actress named Suzanne Vale (Streep) that is recovering drug addict trying to pick up the pieces of her acting career and get on with her life after all the drama.
Postcards from the Edge it’s an autobiographical novel wrote it by Carrie Fisher, and I know that if you are a real fan of her, at this point you have had read it already.

I mean, all we knew that this characters would be no longer with us at some point, but it happened so fast that confuse us and also, broke our hearts.
Carrie Fisher was the fantasy of too many men back in the 70s and 80s, but the heart of Fisher belonged to the singer Paul Simon and both married in 1983.
But the couple got divorced in a less of a year.
She had a child in 1992 with the talented agent Bryan Lourd, the actress Billie Lourd, who appears in The Force Awakens alongside her mother. Also, Billie appears in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
On The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2017, Billie Lourd said that she auditioned for the Rey role in Star Wars, which went to Daisy Ridley at the end.
