Today We Lost Our Princess…

It is with a heavy heart that the team here at Metal Express received the  news this morning of the passing of actress Carrie Fisher, age 60. Her spirit of courage and good humor on screen and off inspired and endeared Carrie Fisher to millions, most tellingly for the ages with her portrayal of Princess Leia Organa in Star Wars: A New Hope. We mourn her loss, and can only console ourselves with the legacy she leaves us all both as a courageous advocate for those who struggle with the sickness of addiction, and as a member of the iconic, timeless band of heroes who fought to bring freedom and justice to a galaxy so long ago and far, far away…

For more details on her passing and the reaction of Star Wars fans :


UPDATE: It was just announced earlier this evening that actress Debbie Reynolds, the mother of Carrie Fisher, has passed away at the age of 84:
