    Carrie Fisher

    Carrie Fisher has been a compelling force in the film industry since her feature film
    debut opposite Warren Beatty in the 1975 hit Shampoo. The daughter of Eddie Fisher
    and Debbie Reynolds, she became a cultural icon when she played Princes Leia in the
    original Star Wars trilogy. Her star-studded career includes roles in countless films such
    as The Blues Brothers, The ‘Burbs, Charlie’ s Angels, Austin Powers: International Man
    of Mystery, Garbo Talks, Hannah and Her Sisters, The Man with One Red Shoe, This Is
    My Life, and When Harry Met Sally.

    In 1987, Fisher’s book, Postcards from the Edge, leapt onto the New York
    Times’ bestseller list, and netted her the Los Angeles Pen Award for Best First Novel.
    Four more bestsellers have followed: Delusions of Grandma, Surrender the Pink,
    The Best Awful, and Wishful Drinking. Her latest book, Shockaholic, was released in
    November 2011. Fisher turned Postcards into a screenplay for the hit film starring
    Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep. Her writing has also appeared in Details,
    Harper’s Bazaar, the New York Times, Travel & Leisure, Vogue, and many other major
    publications.

    Carrie’s television credits range from “Laverne and Shirley” to “Sex and the City,” with
    an Emmy nomination for her appearance on the popular NBC comedy, “30 Rock.”

    Most recently, Fisher has received a number of awards and nominations for her one
    woman show, Wishful Drinking. In 2009, she received a Grammy Award nomination in
    the Best Spoken Word Album category. In 2009/2010, she was nominated for the Drama
    Desk Award for Outstanding Solo Performance, and the Drama League’s Distinguished
    Performance Award. She won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Solo
    Performance. In 2010, Wishful Drinking was made into a documentary by HBO. In 2011,
    she was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy
    Special.

    Her experiences with addiction and bipolar disorder—and her willingness to speak
    honestly and candidly about them—have made her a sought after speaker and respected
    advocate for these communities. She appeared on the California Senate floor, urging
    state legislators to increase government funding on medication for people living with
    mental health issues. Fisher has received dozens of various awards for her courage and
    commitment to fighting mental illness and the stigmas that are associated with it.
