The Star Wars actress suffered a heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday. Her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, said over the weekend that she was in stable condition, but a statement from her daughter this morning (Tuesday) has confirmed her death. It says, “It is with a very deep sadness that Billie Lourd confirms that her beloved mother Carrie Fisher passed away at 8:55 [am PT] this morning. She was loved by the world and she will be missed profoundly. Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers.”
