Carrie Fisher is gone. :-(

  1. I was expecting this but it hit me hard anyway.

    So sad about this. She was way too young to die. She was great in the Star Wars movies, and bravely and openly discussed her mental health issues. I hope she is at peace.

    I love that Carrie was unafraid to be herself. I love that she boldly talked about her struggles with addiction and mental illness. I love that she challenged Hollywood stereotypes.

    Debbie Reynolds was equally fantastic in her own right; she held AIDS charity events before Reagan ever said the word out loud. She served as a beard for more than one gay man in Hollywood to protect him from homophobia and blacklisting. Apart from her acting career, that's what a hero does.

    Amy and I saw the recent Star Wars movie. For one brief moment, this new movie had the young-looking Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) in the scene. It was eerie to see the younger Carrie Fisher in this 2016/2017 movie. We speculated that this scene with Princess Leia was "cleverly" computer-generated.
