  1. Carrie Fisher, Actress and Bestselling Author: Interview on The Sound of Young America | Maximum Fun




    Carrie Fisher

    Carrie Fisher is best known for her role as Princess Leia in the seminal Star Wars films, but she began her celebrity life as a baby — as the daughter of America’s sweethearts, actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher.

    Carrie battled addiction, bipolar disorder and the ups and downs of celebrity to reinvent herself as a successful novelist and memoirist.

    Her stage show Wishful Drinking tours the country, was produced as an HBO special, and garnered her an Emmy nomination.

    Her new book, Shockaholic, recalls stories of her relationships with Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, and her parents, turning to the last resort of electroconvulsive therapy, and more.
