It’s been almost eight months since Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds died, and now Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd has vowed to continue their legacy — and become her own person. “I’ve always kind of lived in their shadows, and now is the first time in my life when I get to own my life and stand on my own,” Lourd told Sarah Paulson in an interview for Town & Country. Lourd has starred on Ryan Murphy’s “Scream Queens” but got her first major movie role in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” in which both she and Fisher appeared.

Mark Hamill in The Force Awakens. No one understands fan culture on the same level as Mark Hamill. The Star Wars hero, who will reprise his role as Luke Skywalker in the upcoming Episode VIII, holds a unique position as both the object of fan idolization and an avid, dyed-in-the-wool pop-culture obsessive.
(Editor’s note: This story has been updated with a statement from Lucasfilm saying that filmmakers have “no plans” to digitally recreate Princess Leia for any future Star Wars films.)
In many ways, Rogue One is unlike any previous Star Wars film — and yet, even in scenes featuring all-new characters, vehicles, and creatures, it feels like a Star Wars movie. Part of the credit for that goes to sound editors Matthew Wood and Christopher Scarabosio, who inherited the job of creating the Star Wars soundscape from original sound designer Ben Burtt. Both Wood and Scarabosio have worked on every Star Wars film since Attack of the Clones, with Wood also supervising the sound in the Clone Wars and Rebels TV series, the Battlefront video game, and the DVD and Blu-ray versions of the original trilogy.
Carrie Fisher was funny until the very end. Leave it to Carrie Fisher to find humor in death. The Star Wars actress was laid to rest on Friday with her mother, Debbie Reynolds, in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, where Carrie made quite the entrance.
Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, who died within a day of one another last week — at ages 60 and 84, respectively — had a mother-daughter relationship like no other. Fisher often joked that she and her mother, next-door neighbors in Beverly Hills, were living in a reality show. The Bright Lights trailer shows a few moments that back up her quip — Fisher chiding Reynolds about her ancient cell phone, the two picking out an outfit for Reynolds’ cabaret show — but also hints at a deeper look at the family’s complicated history.

There was a time when Elizabeth Taylor, Eddie Fisher, and his wife, Debbie Reynolds, were all great friends. Elizabeth and Eddie’s affair changed that. Debbie Reynolds will go down in history as one of the greats from Hollywood’s Golden Age.
Hollywood is mourning the loss of legend Debbie Reynolds. Just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher’s death, the Singin’ in the Rain actress has passed away at age 84.
Carrie Fisher has died at age 60, after a heart attack. No one was more open about her struggles navigating through life and Hollywood than Fisher herself. From mental illness to substance abuse, Carrie used her quick wit to write numerous novels and nonfiction books — including the recent The Princess Diarist — about her journey.
According to Carrie Fisher, she and Harrison Ford had an intense affair while filming the original ‘Star Wars’ movie. The 60-year-old ‘Star Wars’ actress details the encounter in her new memoir, ‘The Princess Diarist’, which reveals the three-month affair with the then-33-year-old father of two. After stumbling upon her angst-ridden journals from during her time filming the original ‘Star Wars’, Fisher explained that she felt it was the right time to come clean.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens arrives on iTunes and other digital download services today and with it comes the in-depth bonus Secrets of “The Force Awakens”: A Cinematic Journey. There’s the sheer giddiness of newcomers Daisy Ridley and John Boyega and a crew tasked with revisiting George Lucas’s iconic galaxy tempered by the unadulterated neuroticism of director J.J. Abrams (who says he felt “primal terror” going into the first day of shooting). For months before the film’s release, Fisher, 59, was outspoken about the difficulty of returning to her career-defining role as Princess Leia.
