Rebel Princess | A Carrie Fisher TributeA Carrie Fisher Tribute

Welcome to Rebel Princess, A Carrie Fisher Tribute Fansite. I've been a fan of Carrie for 40 years as an actress, an author, and as a mental health advocate. My heart broke when she died last year. She was bigger than life, so witty and smart, so outspoken and powerful, a spirit burning brighter that the stars. A true hero to us all.

This site is a current work in process. I intend to have it as complete as possible but it will take some time so please follow our social media for updates. And drop by the memorial page to leave your thoughts about Carrie.

PARADE – Fans of the late Carrie Fisher remember the Star Wars star for her warmth, her biting wit and, of course, her iconic performances as Princess Leia. Fisher brought her signature style (and some of the franchise’s untold secrets) to The Princess Diarist, a memoir published just a month before her passing in 2016, based on the journals a teenage Fisher kept during the filming of the first-ever Star Wars film in 1977.

 

The Princess Diarist instantly made waves (and best-seller lists) for its raw hilarity and its juicy behind-the-scenes glimpse at Star Wars, including revelations about Fisher’s relationship with co-star Harrison Ford.

 

And now the audiobook recording of The Princess Diarist, narrated by Fisher herself and daughter Billie Lourd, has been nominated for a Grammy award in the Best Spoken Word Album category. If The Princess Diarist wins, it will be Fisher’s first Grammy, though the actress was previously nominated in the same category in 2009 for her memoir Wishful Drinking.

 

Listen to an excerpt from the audiobook below, where Fisher describes her first nerve-racking Star Wars audition with George Lucas.
