Carrie Fisher 1956-2016

2016 has seen a lot of celebrity deaths. A good number of them were of long time stars who had lived a long life and while sad, their deaths were not massive shocks.

Carrie Fisher's role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars series made her a science fiction icon, although this was by no means her only role in her career; she did a particularly good turn in the original Blues Brothers.

Dying after a heart attack shortly after filming her role in the eighth 'main sequence' Star Wars film is no way to go; it will make watching Episode VIII a much more sombre experience.

Rest in Peace.
