In a year that has seen us mourn the loss of some of the greatest names of our generation, today we are sad to report the passing of Carrie Fisher at the age of 60 following a heart attack she suffered on Friday on a flight from London to L.A. Fisher was best known for her role in The Star Wars franchise as Princess Leia.

On Tuesday morning Lourd’s publicist released the following statement confirming her passing:  “It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning. She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly. Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers”
