She suffered a heart attack while onboard a Los Angeles-bound flight just 15 minutes before the airline landed. They had a medic onboard that gave her CPR until the paramedics arrived on the scene. She was then placed on a ventilator while in transport to the hospital.
We love her role in Star Wars!
“She has no friends, no family; her planet was blown up in seconds – along with her hairdresser – so all she has is a cause,” Fisher told Rolling Stone in 1983 of the role. “From the first film [A New Hope], she was just a soldier, front line and center. The only way they knew to make the character strong was to make her angry. In Return of the Jedi, she gets to be more feminine, more supportive, more affectionate. But let’s not forget that these movies are basically boys’ fantasies. So the other way they made her more female in this one was to have her take off her clothes.”
