R.I.P.: Carrie Fisher

[ENOUGH! This year is beyond merciless.]

It’s tough being a child with famous parents. It’s tougher when they are Hollywood famous. It’s toughest when you decide to get into acting.

I loved her in Shampoo but Star Wars came along almost immediately after and right away you could tell that Princess Leia was one of Those Roles: it would be hard for anybody to see her as anybody else, the rest of her life.

Thought she hit the perfect tone describing her rocky roads — she never wasted time early on pretending to be a goody-goody or angled for martyr status. Apt that she departs in a year that has taken so many rock stars — she was one.
