She was by far one of the most impactful actresses on my life, as i have loved Star Wars for as long as i can remember. The saga is now a solid part of my children's lives, and Princess Leia is a household name. Her impact on the Star Wars series cannot be understated.
She was a main part of the original Episodes, along with starring in the latest Episode 7. She will also play a part in the soon to be released Episode 8, and thankfully was able to complete her work before her untimely demise.
