When she was only two years old, her parents divorced and her father married Elizabeth Taylor. She attended the Beverly Hills High School but dropped out of studies at the age of 15 to become an actress, then attended the Central School of Speech and Drama in London for 18 months, and the Sarah Lawrence College, that she left for the Star Wars saga. In 1983 she married singer Paul Simon, but their marriage lasted only a year. In 1991 she began a relationship with agent Bryan Lourd, from whom he had a daughter, Billie Lourd, born in 1992. Their relationship ended in 1994 when he abandoned her for a man. On December 23, 2016, during a transatlantic flight from London to Los Angeles, Fisher suffered a stroke 15 minutes before landing, and died on December 27 at the age of 60. The next day her mother Debbie Reynolds had a stroke and died a few hours later in hospital. Carrie's death was deeply felt all over the world by all those who had loved and never forgotten her unique rendering of Princess Leia.

She played such a crucial role in my professional and personal life, and both would have been far emptier without her. I am grateful for the laughter, the wisdom, the kindness, and even the bratty, self-indulgent crap my beloved space-twin gave me through the years. Thanks Carrie, I love you.
