Remembering Carrie Fisher: More Than Leia

The Movie Dweeb

Well, f*ck 2016. Credit where credit’s due, when it came to the end of the world, the Mayans were only four years out.

This year has seen the loss of some of the world’s greatest stars; David Bowie, Prince, Alan Rickman, George Michael, Leonard Cohen, Muhammad Ali – my fingers are starting to ache now – Gene Wilder, Ronnie Corbett, Anton Yelchin, Victoria Wood, and, most recently, Carrie Fisher.

Aged 60, the actress – mostly recognised for her role as Princess Leia Organa in the original Star Wars franchise – passed away in Los Angeles, on Tuesday, 27 December 2016. This comes after the star suffered a heart attack on a flight from London.
