Per the press release, her cardiac arrest that occurred on December 27th while on a plane from London to LA was caused by “multiple drug intake, with significance not ascertained.” Fisher was very open about her early drug use and lifelong battle with mental illness, saying that “she smoked pot at age 13, used LSD by 21 and was first diagnosed as bipolar at age 24.”

Fisher was best known as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Fisher is also said to be reprising her role as General Leia Organa in Star Wars: Episode VIII. An official from Lucasfilm confirmed to TMZ that the Fisher had “absolutely wrapped” filming.
