How Carrie Fisher May Have Predicted Her Own Death

Actress Carrie Fisher died at the age of 60 on December 27, 2016, reported People Magazine. The "Star Wars" actress, best known for her role in the franchise as Princess Leia, suffered from a heart attack while on a flight to Los Angeles. After being taken to the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for care, Fisher died just a few days later. Her sad and sudden death was followed by another shocking Hollywood loss — that of her mother and former actress, Debbie Reynolds, who died just a day after Fisher at 84 years old (via The Guardian). The mother and daughter were survived by Fisher's brother Todd, and her only child and daughter, Billie Lourd.

Fisher rose to fame in the late '70s when she starred in the debut "Star Wars" film in 1977 (via History). From then on, she continued to reprise her role as the defiant hero in numerous sequels of the series up until her death, per IMDb. Despite the loss, the franchise picked up where it left off. Interestingly, Fisher may have foreseen something about her fate and related it to her iconic character.

Carrie Fisher may have demonstrated and predicted her death

In 2017, a friend of Carrie Fisher revealed that she probably predicted her death more than a decade before she did. According to her close friend and English singer James Blunt, Fisher left an eerie art project at his door, reported Evening Standard. Specifically, Blunt was staying at Fisher's house in 2004 while working on a musical project when she left something strange outside the door of the room he was staying in. The item in question was a cardboard cutout of her character Princess Leia with two dates on its forehead: Fisher's date of birth and the date she apparently assumed she died. 

Blunt recalled that he couldn't remember the exact date but did say it was around the time she did die."[S]he put a cardboard cutout of herself as Leia outside my room, with her date of birth and date of death on her forehead. I'm trying to remember what the date was because it was around now — and I remember thinking it was too soon," he said
