Here's an exclusive update from her brother.

Carrie Fisher is currently in the Intensive Care Unit of a Los Angeles hospital after suffering a heart attack aboard an airplane on Friday, her brother, Todd Fisher, tells ET exclusively.

"She is in the intensive care unit, she is being well looked after," Todd says. "If everyone could just pray for her that would be good. The doctors are doing their thing and we don't want to bug them. We are waiting by patiently."

Todd says Fisher's condition is still unknown.

"We don't know. We hope for the best," Todd says. "We certainly do not know her condition, that's why she is in ICU. I'm sure everyone wants to speculate, but now is not the time for that."

I assume he is referring to the speculation that her character Princess Leia is speculated to have an increased role in Episode 9 which has not yet filmed. More importantly, its the fact it happened on December 23rd, immediately ahead of the Holidays.

It sounds optimistic. Her dad lived to 82 and her mom is still healthy at 84 so there is that to look to.

What is in most people's mind and don't want to admit is that they expect her in Episode VIII and if she dies it'll affect the story. I know it's not the most sensitive thing to comment on but it's in a lot of people's mind and they're afraid to say it and the ones who do get reprisals but it's only humans. "What will happen to Ep.8?" Might not be the most tactful thing to ask as it's happening but it's a valid question, when exactly is the right time to ask? It's only logical and human that people are curious. That's the controversial question but it should be allowed to ask.

I also find the whole "stop 2016" thing stupid, yeah a lot of bad things happened this year but for example celebrity deaths are only going to become more and more common as all the superstars created by TV and modern cinema are growing older which wasn't the case before and probably won't be the case as much in the future as there aren't as many "superstars" like there were in the past.

Sorry about the rant but I got annoyed at twitter at people "honoring" Carrie Fisher with Star Wars quotes or "may the force be with her" but people asking what would happen with the new movie got flamed.

Especially as it's the holiday/rich foods aplenty season, here's some info regarding women and heart disease.

More than one in three female adults has some form of cardiovascular disease. An overall increase in heart attacks among women is seen about 10 years after menopause. Heart disease is the leading killer of women.

Menopause and Heart Disease - American Heart Association (http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Conditions/More/MyHeartandStrokeNews/Menopause-and-Heart-Disease_UCM_448432_Article.jsp#.WF665vkrLcs)

Heart Attack Signs in Women

- Uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain in the center of your chest. It lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back.

- Pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
Shortness of breath with or without chest discomfort.

- Other signs such as breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

- As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain.

If you have any of these signs, call 9-1-1 and get to a hospital right away.
Heart Attack Symptoms in Women (http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Conditions/HeartAttack/WarningSignsofaHeartAttack/Heart-Attack-Symptoms-in-Women_UCM_436448_Article.jsp#.WF67LfkrLct)

And yeah, it's kind of tacky af to be worried about a fictional story when someone's life is literally on the line.
Cope as you need to, but...cripes, consider your words.

Its a shame she did so much drugs when she was younger. She's only 60 years old which is still relatively young, and this really proves what drugs can do to you.

If she survives she may still suffer damage so we don't know if she'll make a full recovery.

THGhost
12-24-2016, 11:37 AM
I'm certainly not afraid to ask how this will affect Episode VIII. I've already come to the obvious conclusion that the story will have to be re-written if she dies. And like Cubed said, we don't know if she'll make a full recovery. So the story may get re-written regardless.

The writers are no doubt frantically putting something together right now in case the worst happens, if they haven't done so already.

Don't be that guy, man. When someone is on a movie screen for years people will get used to them and feel a bit bothered when they see them suffering like this. Or you're telling me that a complete stranger getting cancer affects you harder than someone you see on v everyday and whose work you grew up admiring.

Oh so she's the one who played Princess Leila in the original Star Wars movies. I honestly had never bothered to check the name of the actress who played her.

Guess she's one of those cases of someone famous whose face I knew but not her actual name. That tends to happen to me more often when it comes to musicians, however. I get a lot of those "oh so he's the one who sings this song!" moments.

She was always outspoken and while I disagreed with her complains I respected her for it. She didn't maintain the best shape but as she said, that's who she wanted to be so I think she's happier to have gone out living her life as she wanted rather than how people wanted her to. If it hadn't been for the Sequel Trilogy we might've lost her before since she had to lose weight for that. Hammil also improved a lot. I'm sure most people aren't thinking about it but her dog is really going to miss her,s he loved and brought him everywhere. Edit: man, I guess she thought about it ahead of time since her dog made it to her obituary (https://www.yahoo.com/celebrity/iconic-star-wars-actress-carrie-174459671.html),s he's awesome I would do the same.

If Princess Leia survives in Episode 8, They are gonna have to do some rewrites for Episode 9 on why she's not in it, One way would be for Leia having an off screen death, The other way would be that she's still alive, but only referenced in the movie.

Either way, the new films are going to have to acknowledge her passing at some point, So far Kylo Ren is the only connective tissue for Leia and Han Solo.

Just seen this on Facebook:

"As she would have wanted, I would like to report that Carrie Fisher died bathed in moonlight, strangled by her own bra."

In reference to this from Carrie:

"Now, George came to my show when it was in Berkeley. He came backstage and explained why you can't wear your brassiere in other galaxies, and I have a sense you will be going to outer space very soon, so here's why you cannot wear your brassier, per George. So, what happened is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands? But your bra doesn't, so you get strangled by your own bra. I think that this would make for a fantastic obit, so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I wanted it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra."

This ones different. This one hurts.

I remember going to the Toronto Fan Expo a few years ago and was bored out of my mind. I was going through something at the time and I couldn't seem to let go and just enjoy myself. I wandered into one of her Q&A panels she had going on and within seconds I was cracking up at her wit.

"Doesn't it bother you that Star Wars has basically no girl characters?"
"Honey, I was the only girl in a fantasy made for boys. How bad could it have been?"

I just instantly felt better for the rest of the day. I remember silently thanking her in my head as I left the room and just feeling re-energized.

Sad day. We lost a Princess.

Statements from Debbie Reynolds, George Lucas and Harrison Ford, Billy Dee Williams and Mark Hamill:

"Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter," Fisher's mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, wrote on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/thedebbiereynolds/posts/811585312313920). "I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop."

"Carrie and I have been friends most of our adult lives," Star Wars creator George Lucas said in a statement. "She was extremely smart; a talented actress, writer and comedienne with a very colorful personality that everyone loved. In Star Wars, she was our great and powerful princess — feisty, wise and full of hope in a role that was more difficult than most people might think. My heart and prayers are with Billie, Debbie and all Carrie’s family, friends and fans. She will be missed by all."

"Carrie was one-of-a-kind, brilliant, original," Harrison Ford, who played Han Solo alongside Fisher, added in a statement. "Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely. My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her mother Debbie, her brother Todd and her many friends. We will all miss her."

"I'm deeply saddened at the news of Carrie's passing," Fisher's Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi co-star Billy Dee Williams wrote on Twitter. "She was a dear friend, whom I greatly respected and admired. The force is dark today!"

A brief put poignant tweet from Mark Hamill. (https://twitter.com/HamillHimself/status/813816434073579521)

If Rogue One taught us anything dead actors can always come back.

Probably not for an entire movie though. :P

Episode 8 better have "In Memory of Carrie Fisher" at the beginning before the title.

It'll be at the end, not the start. I've only ever seen things like that at the end of stuff.

Maybe because (spoiler tag for Prowler) R2D2 was only 1 very short scene?

So? R2 is one of the most recognizable characters of the entire franchise, regardless of how present he is between installments.

Call me crazy, but I think that Disney might not have wanted a Kenny Baker credit so that the immortality of the character of R2-D2 could be preserved. They released their first new SW film only last year, and it's supposed to be a resurgence and rebirth for the franchise.
Then Kenny Baker dies, and suddenly R2 becomes a bit less human in the minds of viewers for future films. Does Disney want to remind people of that?

Just a random thought that popped into my head.

When I first watched Star Wars as a kid I thought it was a super old movie and figured most people who made it were dead so I was shocked when we started getting a bunch of SW stuff in the mid 90s.

The thing is all the big name movie stars, actors and singers from the 80's, 90's and prior were already in their late 20's or 30's during that time. So naturally we're 20 years later...so they aged 20 years.

The difference for us is we were all kids at the time, so we aged into adults. But they were already adults back then...so they aged into middle age and became elderly. This is why people keep saying, "Why are so many dying in 2016?" when in reality its because many of these people have in fact aged alongside us.

Its a real shame to see people dying at only 50-60 years old, that really should not happen nowadays.

So I've been going through youtube watching old Carrie Fisher interviews from the mid-80's and early 90's from talk shows, and man, is it just me or did Carrie age rather quickly? One interview was from 1987, only 4 years after Return of the Jedi came out, and she looked nearly double her age. Was that the effect of drug use when she was younger?

I notice a lot of people were shocked Carrie was only 60 when she passed away because a lot of people wrongly assumed she was nearly 70.

Found a nice anecdote on Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/news/comments/5kkznl/carrie_fisher_dies_at_60/#bottom-comments) from a fan who met Fisher.

She was the most funny person. A few years ago I met her at the Star Wars Celebration. It was the last day, on the last hour of the event and I was the last one in a queue to get her autograph. As I was about to greet her, someone tapped on my shoulder, it was Femi Tayler, the dancing Twi'lek, asking me if she could get before me and hug Carrie. They were so happy to see each other it was a real pleasure to witness that.

A few minutes later, still very happy, Carrie Fisher greeted me with a huge grin and, pushing a box of cookies, told me to take one. As I politely declined, she waved her hand like a Jedi and told me "You want to take a cookie".

All my friends over there were jealous beyond measure and I still cherish the memory.

Its only a 4 minute clip, but it really shows you had talented she was when she was younger. Its hard to believe this is from 1952:

Man, back then to be an actor/singer in a movie you needed real talent, unlike the trash they put out today. What happened to the talent from classic movies?

Debbie Reynolds was one of a kind.

I'd argue it was easier to get a job acting back then than it is now.

It was the 50's, there were very few TV shows and movies made back then. There was only like 5 channels on the entire television, a lot of it was still even in black and white. If you didn't live in Hollywood at the time it was hard to get in.

Most households didn't even have TV's back then. TV only became mainstream in the 50's to begin, prior to that in the 40's you had to go to the cinema.

You're very wrong. Movies were culturally bigger in the 50s than they are now. And the niche buisness part made it easier to get into the industry.

Far less movies and shows made though, equals much fewer actors working in the industry.

Also live-theater was still very popular back then, so many still did broadway shows or musicals in front of a live audience rather than film.

If they were a niche business then how were they culturally bigger.

They had a bigger impact. More people went to the movies in the 50s/60s, but I'm not sure they would be interested in acting as a profession.

The problem is nowadays there's too many movies, shows, etc. coming out at the same time. Both on TV and in theaters, and online. All these new streaming shows on netflix and other online companies, plus youtube, and all this other stuff like indie movies.

Nowadays there's just too much. It's kind of why all the biggest franchises are ones that have already been established for decades like Star Wars, DC/Marvel superheroes, etc....because new franchises have trouble breaking through. Probably the only exception is Disney movies but that's because of brand power.

Which is why "nothing is original anymore".

Got a chance to watch "Wishful Drinking" last night on HBO.
Good show. Ms Fisher was one hell of a funny lady, who lead one f*ck of an interesting life.

I still haven't sat down and watched this musical. I think I'll do that this weekend. Still trying to wrap my head around both of these amazing actresses being taken from us so suddenly. I'm a pretty big SW fan, so this week has sucked.

Agreed. And truth be told, she probably did a lot more living in her 60 years than most people who are like 95.

It's a real shame people don't watch Carrie Fisher's other roles outside of Star Wars much. I mean everyone watches all of Harrison Ford's other movies, he's been in dozens, but with Carrie people just know her for Princess Leia and that's it.

Even Mark Hammil gets so much recognition for playing The Joker in B:TAS and other movies for over 20 years. He's still voicing him today in the new Justice League Action cartoon airing on Cartoon Network.

She has around 80 some credits to her name. A lot of it is one off guest TV appearances or voice acting roles. If I am not mistaken part of it was Carrie's own doing opposed to type casting. She found work writing and editing scripts and wrote books as well. The Princess Diarist was her 8th book.

The Bluess Brothers film is my favortie comedy film of all-time. Carrie is a part of what makes it such in her small role. Here is one of her few scenes. Its a Youtube clip within the article where Dan salutes his ex.

Movies were definitely huge in the 50s already. Remember that, for decades, before everyone had a TV at home, people would go to the cinema/theatres not only to watch films but also the news and cartoon shorts of Bugs Bunny, Betty Booper, Mickey Mouse, etc.

And there being way less actors and movies made it easier for everyone to know the names of the top stars. My grandmother knew pretty much all of the golden age cinema actors by name, but she probably had no idea who, let's say, Vin Diesel was.
