Carrie Fisher, the fierce and beautiful Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise, passed away Tuesday at the age of 60. Fisher went on to star in a host of films and write several books, including 2016's memoir, The Princess Diarist. We pay tribute to an icon and share Tweets and messages from those who adored her.
"Carrie Fisher was one-of-a-kind, a true character who shared her talent and her truth with us all with her trademark wit and irreverence. Millions fell in love with her as the indomitable Princess Leia; she will always have a special place in the hearts of Star Wars fans as well as all of us who were lucky enough to know her personally. She will be sorely missed, and we join millions of fans and friends around the world who mourn her loss today,” said Bob Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company, which owns Star Wars.
