Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around. Family Guy will miss her immensely.

I thought I had got what I wanted under the tree. I didn't. In spite of so many thoughts and prayers from so many. I am very, very sad.

Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, released a statement through her spokesman saying Fisher died Tuesday just before 9 a.m PST. Lourd said her mother was "loved by the word and she will be missed profoundly," AP reported.
Fisher made her feature film debut opposite Warren Beatty in the 1975 hit "Shampoo" and was also an accomplished author who detailed her experiences with addiction and mental illness in several best-selling books.
Besides her daughter, Fisher is survived by her brother, Todd Fisher, and her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds.
Mike Tammero, host of "In the FOXlight" on Fox News Channel, joined "Happening Now" to share his remembrances of Fisher, including meeting her for the first time.
"She was just such a real, down-to-earth person, which struck me [for] someone who is Hollywood royalty," said Tammero.
He said Fisher has a cameo in the next "Star Wars" film, the follow-up to last year's "The Force Awakens." The move is slated to be released in Dec. 2017.
