Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, became an icon when she starred as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. Her eclectic Hollywood career includes roles in numerous films such as The Blues Brothers, When Harry Met Sally and the recent world-wide blockbuster, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She is the author of such international bestselling novels and non-fiction as Wishful Drinking, Surrender the Pink, Delusions of Grandma, The Best Awful, and Postcards from the Edge, which was made into a hit film starring Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep. Fisher’s experience with addiction and mental illness–and her willingness to speak honestly about them–have made her a sought-after speaker and respected advocate.
