Carrie Fisher died a year ago today
Carrie Fisher died a year ago today and just like that, the world suddenly got a little less smart and witty.
The actress and author was a personal favorite of mine and it was so nice to see her one last time in Star Wars: The Last Jedi in which she has a major role.
Fisher had been especially busy in the weeks before her deathpromoting her last book The Princess Diarist about the filming of the original Star Wars film.
She became an overnight star as Princess Leia and revealed in the book that she and co-star Harrison Ford has an affair during filming of the first movie.
Fisher is the daughter of movie legend Debbie Reynolds and the late singer Eddie Fisher. Her mother died the very next day after falling ill while planning her daughter’s funeral.
Below is a particularly funny interview Carrie gave in the months before her death. It’s such a wonderful way to remember her.
