The fact that "Postcards From The Edge" inspired me even more than "Star Wars" is really saying something. #CarrieFisher

She was the kindest coolest smartest and most encouraging person I ever met in Hollywood. I adored her. Goodbye Carrie. #CarrieFisher

RIP #CarrieFisher. Another horrible loss. Witty, outspoken, wry critic of the bullshit of her industry. I love Leia but loved Carrie more.

#CarrieFisher is gone and the world feels immediately dimmed. Like Bowie, she surprised us with late revelations then left us too soon

According to reports, a heart attack ultimately cut Fisher’s life short.
Family spokesman Simon Halls released a statement to PEOPLE on behalf of Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd: “It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 this morning,” reads the statement. “She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly,” says Lourd. “Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.” (People)
A few days ago, Fisher received medical attention after suffering a heart attack aboard a flight going to Los Angeles.
TMZ broke the story … 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. (TMZ)
