Profile of the Day: Carrie Fisher

Carrie Fisher

Happy birthday, Carrie Fisher! Today the star turns 59.

The daughter of actors Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, Fisher seemed destined to follow her parents into show business. In 1977, she skyrocketed to international fame when she was cast as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy.

Despite also becoming a best-selling author and screenwriter, and taking on memorable supporting roles in films such as When Harry Met Sally…, Fisher remains most recognized for her role in Star Wars. Later this year, audiences will get to see her return to the role that made her famous in the newest continuation of the Star Wars franchise.

Are you excited to see her return along with co-stars Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill in Star Wars: The Force Awakens?
