Fisher was flying from London to Los Angeles on Friday, Dec. 23, when she went into cardiac arrest. Paramedics removed her from the flight and rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she was treated for a heart attack. She later died in the hospital.

The daughter of showbiz veteran Debbie Reynolds and entertainer Eddie Fisher, Fisher was brought up in the sometimes tumultuous world of film, theatre and television.

Of course, Princess Leia was her iconic role, but Carrie also starred in “The Blues Brothers,” “When Harry Met Sally,” “Postcards from the Edge” and many, many more.

She famously battled substance abuse throughout her life. In 2013, she was hospitalized for complications from bipolar disorder.
