There’s an update from a story from earlier that is worth knowing since everyone out there is very worried about Carrie Fisher right now, and luckily, this may be one of the rare occasions this year where this update is actually good news.
Fisher, who is best known for playing Princess Leia in “Star Wars” across several movies, is reportedly now in stable condition following a major heart attack that she suffered on the way back from a flight from London to Los Angeles. She was listed in critical condition upon being admitted to a local hospital, and while there were and still are some major fears about her condition, it appears as though she may be able to pull through. Her brother Todd informed the Associated Press that Fisher was “out of emergency,” and was now in stable condition.
If she makes it through recovery, Fisher may have to thank an EMT who happened to be on the flight with her, and was able to provide immediate treatment until the plane arrived to the gate. From there, she was able to be transferred over to a nearby hospital and given prompt care. The quick response to the heart attack is likely what saved her life.
Since the news first broke regarding the heart attack, there have obviously been a wide array of different tributes that have poured out from all over the world. The one below comes courtesy of her “Star Wars” co-star Mark Hamill, and is simple but meaningful.
In addition to her film work, Fisher is an accomplished writer who is responsible behind the scenes for several hit movies, and has several notable TV credits including “Catastrophe,” “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” “30 Rock,” and voice-acting across several episodes of “30 Rock.”
Once there is a further update on her condition, we’ll be sure to have that for you here. In the meantime, we have to remember that the force is strong with Fisher and we have to believe that this will carry her through so she can be a beacon of hope to us all that 2017 will be a better year.
