For all the lovers of Star Wars, the tragic death of Princess Leia Organa (later General Leia) must have been devastating. We heard on December 27, 2016 that the woman behind Star Wars 8th hero was confirmed dead on that same day. Carrie Frances Fisher played the role of the Star Wars princess from the fourth to eighth season and while she was Leia, she gave it her best; she was described by George Lucas (the man behind Star Wars) as powerful, feisty, wise and full of hope. The role became in the 1980s the icon of a feminist hero.
Date of Birth: October 21, 1956
Date of Death: December 27, 2016 (she was 60)
Zodiac Sign: Libra
Fisher and her celebrity mum are now laid to rest at Forest Lawn-Hollywood Hills. Our beloved Carrie Frances Fisher was more than a gifted actress; she was a wife, a mother and a lover. When she is not on the scene of a movie, she is enjoying her relationship with her loved ones. Aside her parents and siblings, the other people that matter most to her are these people.
Paul Simon (husband)
Date of Birth: October 13, 1941
Duration of Marriage: August 1983 – July 1984
Zodiac Sign: Libra
Fame for Paul began while he was part of the music duo “Simon & Garfunkel” from 1964 to 1970. The two artists were together until they could stand successfully on their individual accord. Paul Simon’s rock and folk-centered solo career earned him sixteen Grammys and he garnered several other awards including an induction into his Rock and Roll Hall of fame. Before Carrie Fisher, Simon was married to Paggy Harper from late autumn 1969 till their 1975 divorce.

Carrie met musician Paul Simon on the set of the Star Wars trilogy and dated him for six years. After dating Simon for about three years, Fisher had a casual relationship with Canadian funny man Dan Aykroyd but it was really brief and she went back to Paul. The two finally got married in 1983 only for us to hear of a divorce barely a year after marriage. While they were together, Paul’s song “Hearts and Bones” was practically about the romance he stared with the Star Wars hero.
Who would have thought they could split after just one year of “marital bliss”? We mean, after a six years relationship, you would think they were about to become the next big thing that has happened to marriage. We guess they were really into each other after seven years in total because after the divorce, Fisher and the famous guitarist Simon were on an off for a bit.
On May 30, 1992, the famous oldie got married for the third time to fellow folk artist Edie Brickell who is twenty years younger. He has four children in total; Harper Simon with Peggy Harper and Adrian, Lulu and Gabriel from his marriage to Edie Brickell.
Bryan William Lourd (long-term partner)
Date of Birth: November 5, 1960
Duration of Relationship: 1991 to 1994
Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
They never got married but what Carrie and Bryan shared was out of the ordinary. Fisher loved him so much to have a daughter for him and to describe him as her second husband in several interviews without them being officially married.
Lourd is a talent agent who since October 1995 has served as a top official in creative Artists Agency. After his literal “divorce” with Fisher, Bryan took a really long break before he fell in love with Bruce Bozzi. Lourd and Bozzi, co-owner of The Palm got married on October 12, 2016 and they now shuttle between their houses in New York City and California respectively.
Billie Catherine Lourd (daughter, born to Carrie Fisher and Bryan Lourd)
Date of Birth: July 17, 1992
Zodiac Sign: Cancer
Many of you know her from her on-screen character Chanel (no. 3) in Scream Queens. Yes, Carrie Fisher’s lovely daughter is also an actress! She was born in Los Angeles and is amazingly the godchild of the awesome Meryl Streep. Billie is a 2014 graduate of Religion and Psychology.
After school, Lourd went on to begin a career in the movie industry, casting her debut role as Lieutenant Connix in Star Wars (2015) and sequel to her debut role, Billie was chosen to be part of the horror-comedy series Scream Queens (2015).
Billie Catherine Lourd is the only surviving child of her late mother. Sit back and watch while she “hopefully” finds her way to the top like her mother and grandma (Debbie Reynolds) did!
