Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, her brother, Todd Fisher, and actor Taylor Lautner were in attendance for the burial. Todd was seen carrying his sister’s ashes in an urn shaped like a Prozac pill. “Carrie’s favorite possession was a giant Prozac pill that she bought many years ago. A big pill,” Todd told Entertainment Tonight. “She loved it, and it was in her house, and Billie and I felt it was where she’d want to be.” He...

    The passing of the legendary actress, Debbie Reynolds, coming one day after she lost her lovely daughter, Carrie Fisher, prompted me to watch the Youtube clip of Gene Kelly's "Singin' in the Rain." The scene is one of the all-time Hollywood classics, maybe the best song-and-dance take in cinema history. But the scene calls to mind a far more primary and significant idea to me than the genius of Gene Kelly and his emotional outpouring at finding his true love in the character played by Debbie Reynolds. The scene absolutely epitomizes the optimism and forward-looking nature of the historic American...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Carrie Fisher, speaking of sexual harassment charges, or rather the lack of them in this case. There's an amusing anecdote out there, Carrie Fisher's latest autobiography. She's the daughter, by the way, of the movie star Debbie Reynolds. I met Debbie Reynolds once at a House Clinic event. She was the entertainer. She's hilarious. I had forgotten. She is a hilarious comedienne, Debbie Reynolds. That's Carrie Fisher's mom, and Carrie Fisher played Princess Leia in the first Star Wars flick. That was before calling someone princess was sexist. Do you believe Cain had to apologize for calling...

    It is the debate that has been raging between generations of science fiction fans. But Star Trek star William Shatner believed he had delivered the coup de grace two months ago when he delivered a stinging critique he thought proved his franchise was superior. But there is a new hope for Star Wars fans, as original cast member Carrie Fisher has struck back with a rebuke that could return the Jedi-filled universe back to prominence. In a somewhat rambling YouTube video, the Princess Leia star let rip on the rival sci fi favourite. She said: 'They are not in the...
