Description:
A photo of Carrie Fisher (left) with her younger brother, Todd, her mother Debbie Reynolds and father, Eddie Fisher.

Carrie Frances Fisher was born to two entertainers in Beverly Hills, California. Her younger brother became an actor and director and she became an actor, writer, producer and public speaker. Her first movie role was in Shampoo (in 1975) but her most famous (and enduring) role was as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films.

She was very open about her mental illness (she was diagnosed as bipolar) and her subsequent addictions (primarily alcohol and cocaine) but through it all she was witty and accomplished.

She is survived by one daughter, her brother, mother, and two half sisters (by father, Eddie Fisher).
