"This is our most desperate hour." If you have to sum up the mood of the moment, look no further than the words of Princess Leia herself. In her most famous performance – one in which she'd anchor the first three films in the blockbuster Star Wars series, than reprise to rapturous acclaim decades later in The Force Awakens – Carrie Fisher embodied hope in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds. Whether she was playing it cool in one of Leia's more regal moments, slinging insults and shooting stormtroopers as a Rebel leader or chronicling her real-life battles with addiction and mental illness in her fearlessly funny writing, Fisher was one of film's great heroines, on screen and off. The 10 moments below are our tribute to the great woman's greatest creation. We loved her; she knew.
