** At some point, she decided to embrace it: she took up the mantle of General Leia in ''The Force Awakens'' and is set to appear in ''Episode VIII: The Last Jedi'', albeit posthumously. (Creator/MarkHamill [[https://youtu.be/_voKbAgIzWM?t=36499 claims]] she immediately jumped at the opportunity -- "I'm in!" -- at a meeting between them and Lucas). She was quite active on the press circuit for ''TFA'' as well, often travelling with her dog, who quickly developed his own fandom.

* DeadpanSnarker: ''Holy hell yes''. No one was safe from this woman's snark. Not even George Lucas. ''Especially'' not George Lucas.

* DyingMomentOfAwesome: How she wanted her obituary to read. "I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra." Her own defiant middle finger to both Hollywood sexism and death itself.

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: She discusses this in her final title, the 2016 ''The Princess Diarist'', in relation to signing autographs and otherwise providing a celebrity encounter for fans at comic conventions, a practice she refers to as "lap dancing." For the fan, the experience is something they'll quite possibly remember for the rest of their life. For her, it's Tuesday, or another day on the job working to make some extra money to support herself.

She died on December 27, 2016 at the age of 60, after going into cardiac arrest during a transatlantic flight four days earlier. In her book, ''Wishful Drinking,'' Fisher wrote about her eventual obituary: "I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra." Sure enough, several obituaries and retrospectives featured the line. She was cremated, with the remains placed in a giant novelty Prozac pill she'd bought a few years earlier.
