Carrie Fisher, the actress best known for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise died today at age 60. She had suffered a heart attack while on a flight last week.

Born to famed US actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher, her life began in the spotlight. That attention followed Fisher throughout her life in Hollywood, from her iconic early role in the original Star Wars trilogy, to her later years of writing and performing.
