Remembering Carrie Fisher on 'The Graham Norton Show'
The actress best known for her role in Star Wars, and later her screenwriting and raw wit, has died. Carrie Fisher passed away today, aged 60, after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles last Friday.
Like everyone who admired Carrie — an undisputed icon — we're deeply saddened by the news of her death. But we love that she's someone who's racked up so many memorable and hilarious moments — many of them with her friend, and Anglophenia favorite, Graham Norton. We could gush over Fisher's fabulousness for hours, but instead we'll let Carrie — and Graham — do the talking.
Graham tweeted his touching reaction to Carrie's passing:
And here are some of the star's most memorable (and all-too-recent) moments on the red couch:
