The original princess with an attitude, Carrie Fisher, is slated to appear at Star Wars Celebration VI during the show weekend of August 23-26, 2012 at the Orange County Convention Center. Fisher, Princess Leia Organa in the original Star Wars trilogy, will be greeting fans and signing autographs in the Celebration Autograph Hall organized by Official Pix, and is scheduled to appear on stage for an interview and a question and answer session with Celebration host James Arnold Taylor.
Fisher, an audience favorite for both her onscreen and onstage roles, was 19 years old when she became a cultural icon as Princess Leia in A New Hope. Her film career started when she was even younger, playing opposite Warren Beatty in Shampoo in 1975. She is the daughter of actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher. In addition to A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, Fisher has performed in numerous movies and television series, including memorable appearances in The Blues Brothers, The Man with One Red Shoe, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Burbs, When Harry Met Sally, Austin Powers, Heartbreakers, Fanboys, Sorority Row, and in her own television specials, including the autobiographical Wishful Drinking.
Though she is famous for her film, television, and stage roles, Fisher devotes much of her time to writing. She has penned several novels, including the semi-autobiographical Postcards from the Edge, which was made into a successful movie starring Meryl Streep. Her other works include Surrender the Pink, Delusions of Grandma, The Best Awful and Wishful Drinking.
