She was Fisher suffered a heart attack last week aboard a Los Angeles-bound flight 15 minutes prior to landing. In Star Wars , she was our great and powerful princess — feisty, wise and full of hope in a role that was more difficult than most people might think. She will be missed by all.
Her younger brother is Todd Fisher. When she was two years old, her parents divorced and her father married actress Elizabeth Rosamund Taylor. The following year, her mother, Reynolds, married shoe store chain owner Harry Karl--who squandered Reynolds's life savings without the knowledge of either Reynolds or Fisher. Fisher grew up wanting to follow in the footsteps of her famous parents.
