About her career, Carrie Frances Fisher once said, "e;There is no point at which you can say, 'Well, I'm successful now. I might as well take a nap.'"e; Despite her well-documented struggle with addiction and bipolar disorder, Fisher managed to remain a powerful and relevant force in the arts. Known for her role as Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars and her humorous and acerbic writing, Fisher passed away on December 27, 2016 at the age of 60. Her death left millions of fans grieving, including her mother, Debbie Reynolds, 84, who died a day later. Fisher's story is both frustrating and touching.
