Carrie Fisher in ‘stable’ condition; ‘Star Wars’ star, writer, ‘Family Guy’ voice actor continues recovery

Carrie -Given that 2016 has been such a difficult and trying year for so many people, we’re ultimately going to be happy with any good news that we can have — especially when it comes to at Christmastime.

The past few days have been especially different for Carrie Fisher. The “Star Wars” actor, who is also responsible for working on many top movies behind the scenes as a writer, suffered a heart attack years ago that made many people terrified that they would be losing someone so beloved. The recovery to date is a slow one, but the good news is that she does seem to be getting better and better.

In a post on Twitter, Carrie’s mother Debbie Reynolds made it clear that she was in “stable condition,” and if there was any further update on her condition it would be shared in the future. The family has done a good job to date of giving out small updates, while still maintaining some element of privacy. We have a rather difficult time thinking that this strategy is going to change much over the course of the days ahead. For now, all we hope is that Fisher continues to get better and better through the rest of the holidays.

If you’ve missed it, over the past few days we’ve also spotlighted much of Fisher’s TV career, which includes episodes of “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” (pictured above) to go along with “30 Rock” and some other isolated guest appearances. She’s also been a voice actor for multiple episodes of “Family Guy” over the years, a further bit of evidence that one of her greatest strengths as an entertaining over the years is her diversity, and getting to take on such a wide array of characters in a wide array of mediums.

Once we hear more, we’ll be sure to provide some other updates. (Photo: Bravo.)
