Carrie Fisher, best remembered as the tough, feisty and powerful Princess Leia in the original "Star Wars," has died at 60. Fisher made the role iconic, and lines like "Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope," and her futuristic braided bun hairstyle became part of film lore. She recently reprised the role in a sequel, Episode VII, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in 2015, and her digitally rendered image appears in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story."

Fisher also became known for her battles with drug addiction and mental illness, topics she mined as a celebrated author. A 1990 film directed by Mike Nichols was based her screenplay and semi-autobiographical novel. In her last autobiography, this year's "The Princess Diarist," she revealed that she and co-star Harrison Ford had an affair on the set of "Star Wars."

"I'm a product of Hollywood inbreeding," she once said. "When two celebrities mate, something like me is the result."
