Star Wars has played a huge role in my life. I’m so thankful that my mother, who saw the first movie in theaters by herself because no one thought it was worth it, introduced these films to me and my sister when we were very young. The stories, planets and characters were a part of me, as were the actors who played them.
I never knew Carrie Fisher, but she played a pivotal roll for all girls – a fearless, take no prisoners princess, who was as bad ass as her hairstyles. As a person, she fought many demons, but she came out on top and became an advocate for so many who needed a public voice.
It’s so sad to have lost such an amazing talent, icon and person. I can’t even begin to imagine what her family is feeling right now, but she will live on forever in our hearts, minds and these magnificent films she helped bring to life 💜
Rest In Peace, Carrie Fisher.
