    Such a sad loss. She battled bipolar disorder and came back to acting. Then we lost her. Terrible news.

    Sad news. I heard she was in stable condition after her heart attack. Must have taken a turn for the worst.

    The Star Wars movies were such an integral part of my childhood. Such a loss.

    Stable condition does not mean you're ok.
    She was not breathing for at 10 min on the plane before someone got to her - when EMTs got to her it took 15min of CPR to get a pulse. She was on a ventilator as well. Death was inevitable.

    Very sad day.

    We all heard the news on friday, and saturday morning we had tix for Rogue One.

    The last seen was tough to take:(

    R.I.P. Princess Leia ,carrie Fisher ,she died far too young at 60 .

    Apart from writing books she was also one of the top script doctors in Hollywood editing many film and tv scripts. She was also a champion of mental health causes having battled bipolar disorder herself.

    Her list of film and TV appearance is as long as your arm and much more than Star Wars films. i liked her intelligence and sense of humour.

    Your comment below resonated with me ttdtt because in the UK we thought she was okay. I saw that film and got home from the cinema twenty minutes later and my daughter told me she died.

    Yea Xanthippe its so strange.

    I felt there was little hope for her and I was very sad (all my childhood icons and heros are dying).
    Then she comes on screen and says "Hope". :(

    May they rest in peace and stay in the diamond light and never get reborn and off the wheel of Samsara :

    Very sad for Carrie's daughter to lose her mother and grandmother in two days, she's only 24. My thoughts are with the family.
