    RIP Princess Leia Oranga (Carrie Fisher)

    Just saw Rouge one, almost shed a tear at the end as I saw the news as her digital character was literally on the screen. RIP my lady.

    I'm not usually fussed by celebrity goings on but I am a massive Star Wars fan!

    Sad to see an icon from my childhood gone!

    She finished filming her scenes for Episode 8, but I don't know how Disney are going to write her out of Episode 9 because she was such a central character.

    This just goes to show how uncertain life is. Someone can be as clean living as Carrie, yet they can still be taken from us. Plenty of Celebs have self-destructed, such as Amy Winehouse and Michael Jackson, that when a Celeb dies of natural causes we genuinely feel sorrow for them.

    She wasn't the prettiest person around, but she had a strength of character that shone through her performances, and earned her the right to be known as 'Princess Leia' with lines such as, 'Will someone get this big walking carpet out of my way'.

    A sad loss for all. RIP.

    No, she just had more LSD than a quaife factory.

    I think its safe to say she had sampled most of the "pharmaceuticals " available to the rich and famous in Hollywood. While in the real world fiscal constraints often eventually force addicts to confront their addiction before its too late this constraint does not necessarily apply in Tinseltown. :eek:

    She will for many be their first on screen crush. And for that she will always be loved.

    I note that she did a bit of Coke back in the eighties, but has she done something recently because nothing I have read says she had a drug problem prior to her death.
