Legendary Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher passed away yesterday due to complications after a recent heart attack. She was 60 years old.

Carrie Fisher always joked that she wanted it to be reported that she died another way. "I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra," the actress had said in the past.

Cardiac Arrest. A lot of celebrity deaths occurred in 2016 due to cardiac arrest and other similar cardiovascular diseases. Most recently, Star Wars' actress Carrie Fisher passed away on Tuesday morning at the age of 60.

She suffered a massive heart attack a few days prior while she was onboard an aircraft bound for Los Angeles. Singer George Michael and 'Growing Pains' actor Alan Thicke also suffered from heart attacks earlier this month.

A spokesperson from the American Heart Association (AHA) recently spoke about the importance of preparedness when someone has a heart attack. "That's why it's very important for all of us to learn how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation," said Dr. Nieca Goldberg, a cardiologist and a nationally recognized pioneer in women's heart health.

According to the AHA, heart failure results when the organ can no longer effectively pump blood through the arteries and circulatory system to the rest of the body's organs and tissue. Heart failure usually comes after cardiac arrest.

Princess Leia and Star Wars Episode VIII. After suffering from a heart attack a few days ago, Star Wars fans from across the globe were terrified of their beloved Princess Leia's fate. She was a big part of the original trilogy and is the mother of Kylo Ren, the lead protagonist in the new Star Wars trilogy.

After just reporting her condition as stable and seeing some glimpse of hope for her return in Star Wars Episode VII, Carrie Fisher has left the world following complications resulting from her heart attack. Recent news has revealed that she had already finished filming all of her scenes for Star Wars Episode VIII.

At least fans and the cast will be able to say goodbye to Princess Leia one last time when the movie is set to hit the big screen next year. Star Wars Episode VIII's title still hasn't been revealed but we know it will be released on December 15, 2018.
