    I know we all have seen the news regarding Carrie Fisher's unexpected passing yesterday. Her defining role as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy combined with her writing, script work, humor, and her honesty regarding addiction and mental disorders will forever leave an imprint on our world. This is definitely a very saddening loss that is being felt around the world.

    Carrie Fisher dies at 60: actor and acclaimed writer best known as Princess Leia

    It's even more heartbreaking that Carrie's mother, Debbie Reynolds passed away earlier today, a mere day after her daughter.

    Debbie Reynolds dies, aged 84, one day after daughter Carrie Fisher

    I'm not sure if any of you guys want to say/post anything. But I figured I would start a thread since we've done it in the past with other fairly recent actor deaths.

    She will be missed, we need more people in this world with a good sense of humor about the human condition.

    I rarely take celebrity deaths personally, but she seemed like such a nice woman, i got a bit emotional when i heard this news.

    Some youtube account called "Craig Ferguson and the Ladies" just posted several of her appearances there over the years. They're very fun to watch. She's a serious wacko, and he often doesn't seem to know how to react, but she clearly loves the guy and they clearly have an off-screen friendship. Good stuff.
