Tributes have been pouring in as yesterday marked Carrie Fisher’s one year anniversary. The actress suddenly passed away on December 27, 2016, following a heart attack.

On the one year anniversary of her death, Carrie’s daughter Billie Lourd honoured her late-mum in a touching tribute on Instagram.

Along with her dad, Brian Lourd and his husband Bruce Bozzi, Billie embarked on an emotional trip to see the Northern Lights, which was something her mum loved to do.

Billie shared, “Momby had an otherworldly obsession with the northern lights, but I never got to see them with her.”

“We journeyed to northern Norway to see if we might “see the heavens lift up her dark skirts and flash her dazzling privates across [our] unworthy irises”. And she did,” she wrote

Billie ended the touching post by writing, “I love you times infinity.”

The actress tragically lost her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, one day after her mum’s sudden death, but despite her heartache, Billie has remained strong.

Shortly after her mum and grandmother’s deaths, Billie shared an inspiring nugget of wisdom from her mum, alongside an old photo of the pair.

She wrote, “If my life weren't funny then it would just be true and that is unacceptable- Carrie Fisher.”

The American Horror Story star added, “Finding the funny might take a while but I learned from the best and her voice will forever be in my head and in my heart.”



As tributes pour in for Carrie Fisher following her untimely demise this week, cake company, Cinnabon, have been forced to apologise after posting a tasteless reference to the star.

In the wake of her death, the company were accused of commercialising death after creating an image of the iconic actress with the help of cinnamon and cinnamon rolls.

Alongside the image, the Twitter post contained a questionable reference which read: "RIP Carrie Fisher, you'll always have the best buns in the galaxy."

And, unsurprisingly, Twitter users were far from impressed with the company's decision to use the star's death to advertise their products.

"Never, never use a death to promote your brand. Poor taste," wrote one member of the public while another added: "Tacky. Get over yourself and stop capitalizing on the tragic loss of an icon."

Responding to the criticism, the company deleted the post before issuing an apology, writing: "Our deleted tweet was genuinely meant as a tribute, but we shouldn't have posted it. We are truly sorry."

Carrie Fisher's mother Debbie Reynolds passed away just days after her daughter's death this week.



Following the death of his Star Wars co-star Carrie Fisher yesterday, Hollywood heavy-hitter Harrison Ford has released a statement paying tribute to the much-loved and highly-regarded actress.

In words which are bound to strike a chord with countless fans of the film franchise, Harrison acknowledged Carrie's joie de vivre, and sent his condolences to her family.

"Carrie was one-of-a-kind, brilliant, original," he told People magazine.

"Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely," he continued. "My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her.”

Speaking to E! News, Star Wars creator, George Lucas, also paid tribute to the actress who played Princess Leia in the iconic films.

"Carrie and I have been friends most of our adult lives. She was extremely smart; a talented actress, writer and comedienne with a very colourful 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." George added.

60-year-old Carrie died after suffering a heart attack while on a flight from London to Los Angeles.



Carrie Fisher, best know for her role as Princess Leia in Star Wars, has died at the age of 60.

Just days ago, she suffered a heart attack while on a flight from London to Los Angeles.

A family statement issued this evening on behalf of Ms Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, confirmed that the star had died this morning, Tuesday. 

"It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8.55 this morning.

"She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly. Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers."

As well as starring in other hits such as The Blues Brothers and When Harry Met Sally, Fisher also wrote four novels.

She was just 19 when she shot to fame via Star Wars. As the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds, Carrie spent a lifetime in the spotlight. 

When she was just two, her father left her mother for Elizabeth Taylor – also her mother's close friend. 

In an autobiography published earlier this year, Carrie claimed for the first time that she had a three-month long affair with a married Harrison Ford during the filming of Star Wars.

On December 23 Ms Fisher suffered a cardiac arrest on a flight from London to LA. 

It was later reported that she had stopped breathing and that a fellow passenger had to perform CPR on her.

She has spent the last few days in intensive care at the UCLA Medical Center.


Carrie Fisher is still fighting for her life today, as fans pay tribute to the Star Wars actress on social media.

Carrie is currently in hospital in Hollywood after she suffered a heart attack on Friday. She was in an airplane at the time, flying from London to LA.

Harrison Ford is said to be "shocked and saddened" by her condition. However, she has the whole world on her side as movie fans and major celebrities alike are pouring in the tributes on social media.
