Carrie Fisher dies at 60

Carrie Fisher died earlier this morning at 60 years old.  The “Star Wars” actress suffered a heart attack on Friday on a plane flight from London to Los Angeles and was rushed to emergency. She was previously said to be in a stable condition.

Family spokesman Simon Halls released the following statement:

“It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning. She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly. Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.”

Fisher was not only a well-known actress but also a screenwriter, author, producer, and speaker.  She had recently released “The Princess Diarist” and was on tour with the book.

Her final onscreen work will be Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: Episode VIII” which is slated for release in late 2017.
