Small petite figure
Deep husky voice
Large brown eyes
Often plays smirking, sarcastic characters
Checked into substance-abuse program, addiction to prescription drugs in 1998.
Appeared in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001), which also starred Mark Hamill. It was the first time the two had appeared in the same film since Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). Neither of them knew the other was involved in the project until shortly after filming had been completed.
Attended the Central School of Speech and Drama in London.
Half-sister-in-law of Christopher Duddy and Byron Thames.
Made stage debut in the chorus of "Irene" (1975) starring her mother, Debbie Reynolds.
The punk rock group Blink 182 wrote a song called "A New Hope" in which Fisher's character Princess Leia is the lead singer's dream girl.
Older half-sister of Joely Fisher and Tricia Leigh Fisher. Older sister of Todd Fisher.

I was street smart, but unfortunately the street was Rodeo Drive.
Explaining why gaffer's tape was sometimes used under her Princess Leia costume in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977): "As we all know, there is no underwear in space."
Describing working with Harrison Ford on the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977): Mark was 24, I was 19 and he [Harrison] was 33. He was like the big man on campus. You looked at him and you said to yourself, 'He's going to be a star.'
My father (Eddie Fisher) was a short Jewish man. My husband (Paul Simon) was a short Jewish man. Go figure.
On merchandising for Star Wars: "I signed my likeness away. Every time I look in the mirror, I have to send Lucas a couple of bucks."
Females get hired along procreative lines. After 40, we're kind of cooked.
You can't find true affection in Hollywood because everyone does the fake affection so well.
I always wanted to do what my mother did - get all dressed up, shoot people, fall in the mud. I never considered anything else.
On her father's gossipy 1999 autobiography: "I'm going to have my DNA fumigated."
I have no ambitions as an actress. I'm going to do a day's work on Scream 3 (2000), but that's all I can handle, a day's work.
