A princess onscreen and off, Carrie Fisher played both roles in her own gutsy way.She also appeared in "Austin Powers," "The Blues Brothers," "Charlie's Angels," "Hannah and Her Sisters," "Scream 3" and "When Harry Met Sally ... ".She is best remembered as the tough, feisty and powerful Princess Leia in "Star Wars," making a statement with her character and no-nonsense braided buns. "Always wry and sardonic ... I feel like a lot of the time Leia's either worried or pissed or, thank God, sort of snarky". She reprised the role of Leia in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" in 2015, and her digitally rendered image appears in the newest installment, "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".
