In yet another sad bit of news out of 2016, Carrie Fisher passed away following a heart attack on Friday. The beloved Star Wars actress was 60 years old.
Fisher was on a flight from London to LAX Friday when she suffered the heart attack 15 minutes before landing. People on the plane tell TMZ she appeared lifeless.
A passenger who’s an EMT performed CPR on Carrie and once the flight landed, paramedics rushed her to UCLA Medical Center where she remained in intensive care until her death.
Fisher – well known for playing the inimitable Princess Leia in the space epic – was reportedly on tour promoting her new book, The Princess Diarist, when it all went down. After the initial heart attack, her family said she was stable, but TMZ reports she was “not responsive after her medical emergency.”
After hearing about Fisher’s death, filmmaker and huge Star Wars fan Kevin Smith shared a loving tribute on Instagram, revealing Fisher stole his heart as a kid. See his touching message below:
