Carrie Fisher in ‘Stable Condition,’ Says Mom Debbie Reynolds

After suffering a “cardiac episode” on Friday, “Star Wars” veteran Carrie Fisher is in “stable condition” in a Los Angeles hospital, her mother Debbie Reynolds announced.

“If there is a change, we will share it,” Reynolds tweeted on Sunday. “For all her fans & friends, I thank you for your prayers & good wishes.”

On Friday Fisher’s brother Todd Fisher told KABC that she was “getting the best care she can receive.” “She’s obviously a very tough girl who’s survived many things,” he said.

The 60-year-old actress, best known for her iconic role as Princess Leia on “Star Wars,” was rushed to the hospital Friday after suffering a reported “massive heart attack” on an 11-hour flight from London to Los Angeles.

Although few details have been revealed, United Airlines released a statement saying that medical personnel met Flight 935 after the crew reported a passenger was unresponsive. The Los Angeles Times reports that, just prior to arrival, a pilot told the control tower that she was being attended to by passengers who nurses.

The daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds, Fisher rose to fame with “Star Wars,” but also became well known for her semi-autobiographical novels, including “Postcards from the Edge,” and for her career as one of Hollywood’s top script doctors, polishing screenplays for such films as “Hook,” “Lethal Weapon 3,” “Sister Act,” “Scream 3” and the “Star Wars” prequels.

She returned to the role of Leia Organa for 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” and for 2017’s “Star Wars: Episode VIII.”
