The year of untimely deaths continues as we’ve lost our Princess, Carrie Fisher, who never recovered from the massive heart attack she suffered over the holiday weekend. She was 60.
While genre fans will always remember her as Princess Leia in the Star Wars saga, she dabbled in horror quite a bit over her illustrious career.
Some earlier works include Brian Hannant’s 1987 The Time Guardian, as well as Steven Spielberg’s “Amazing Stories” series. She also plays Tom Hanks’ wife, Carol Peterson, in Joe Dante’s 1989 The ‘Burbs, while having also appeared in Wes Craven’s Scream 3 as Bianca Burnette, “a cynical, chain-smoking former actress, who works in the archives for Sunrise Studios in Hollywood, California.”
Fisher also starred in Stewart Hendler’s 2009 Sorority Row as Mrs. Crenshaw, “the house mother of the Theta Pi Sorority” who was also a minor antagonist.
She will be missed dearly here at Bloody Disgusting.
