Carrie Frances Fisher was an American actress, writer, and humorist who was best known for her portrayal of Princess/General Leia Organa in the original Star Wars trilogy, a role she reprised in The Force Awakens. She was also the daughter of actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher and the half-sister of actress Joely Fisher. She also played Franny Jessup, another Disney character, in Sunday Drive.

Archive footage of her saying the word "Hope", and a CGI likeness of her image (plastered over Ingvild Deila's) were used to portray Leia's voice and face in Rogue One.

Also a screenwriter, Fisher made uncredited rewrites for the Touchstone Pictures film Sister Act. She also wrote The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles episode "Paris, October 1916" (later edited into The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones: (Chapter 9) "Demons of Deception"). Other script editing work included Hook, Lethal Weapon 3, and The Wedding Singer. Fisher also made several edits to her lines in the Star Wars films, as well as edited scripts for the Prequel Trilogy.[1]

She managed to film her scenes as Leia for Star Wars: The Last Jedi before her death.
