Ironically i do not have a single Leia item in my SW collection... well i did have a vintage Kenner Bespin Leia when i was a kid a million years ago but nada in my current 'collection'... what can be said about this woman has already been said today on the internet. As a kid who grew up on the original trilogy she was the first 'princess' i knew of... before Diana... before our own princesses here in Brunei especially Sarah.
Anyways this was a shocker and unexpected cos it was just days earlier the mother announced that Carrie was in a 'stable' condition after the heart failure incident on a plane. This proves once again how mortal we all are but this lady and the others whom we lost this year will remain immortal in our hearts as fans. Thanks Carrie and thank too George Micheal. 2016 a shitty year indeed.
