RIP Carrie Fisher

Postby Woody » Tue Dec 27, 2016 3:26 pm

The actress who played the legendary role of Princess Leia passed away this morning after suffering a heart attack on December 23rd. :( She will be sorely missed.
Photobucket was evil and made third-party display a premium feature. Then they increased the size and obnoxiousness of the placeholder advertisement encouraging me to upgrade. Thus, this text signature.

I just saw that. Yesterday I read she was in stable condition. Must have taken a turn overnight.

I wonder how this will affect the rest of the Star Wars movies. I don't know how big a role they had planned for her to play in the new story.

Pshhh, they have her face on file, I'm sure. They'll just Rogue One all the rest of the movies with her in them. :p

But it's very sad to hear. =( That's what happens when you are around Ford too long. *hides*

Yes, sad news. :( 60 is still quite young. I had heard she had a heart attack but then they said she was in stable condition, so I thought the worst was past.

I saw that she had already filmed all her parts for Episode 8, but whether they will still find a way to make last-minute changes or just find a way to deal with it for Episode 9 is anybody's guess.

Her mother died today from a stroke. O.o

"She went to be with Carrie. In fact, those were the last words she spoke this morning."

Now that was before she passed so we'll see, but even if they do go that route I'm sure it wouldn't be for more than a brief scene to give her a farewell. What I meant was if she was going to be a central figure going forward that plan needs altered now, they aren't going to CGI enough to keep that intact as originally envisioned. She isn't going to suddenly disappear, they'll address it somehow, but she's not going to be frequently recurring or have a big part in the story anymore. If she was even going to, we don't know yet.
