If you and a friend are arguing about this then use this list of the most entertaining Carrie Fisher films to end the squabble once and for all.

Best known for starring as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy, Carrie Fisher grew popularity as an international star for her performance as the smart and brave heroine. Her character also became a cultural icon due to her famous "cinnamon buns" hairstyle in A New Hope and her sexy gold bikini costume in Return of the Jedi. Fisher later reprised her role as Leia in 2015's Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens

Her first major role was in the 1975 comedy Shampoo, alongside Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn, and Julie Christie. She has starred in major films like The Blues Brothers, The Man with One Red Shoe, Hannah and Her Sisters, When Harry Met Sally, Postcards from the Edge, and Drop Dead Fred. She also wrote a successful memoir titled, Wishful Drinking.

On December 27, 2016, Carrie Fisher died at age 60 after going into cardiac arrest a few days earlier. Shortly before her death, Fisher finished filming her role as General Leia Organa in Star Wars: Episode VIII, which will be released posthumously.
