            She’s being remembered for her on-screen talent and her openness about real-life challenges. Actress Carrie Fisher died in Los Angeles yesterday, reportedly from a heart attack at 60. Best known as Princess Leia of the “Star Wars” franchise, she also authored books about her journey through drug addiction, mental illness and electroshock treatment. Canadian actor Dan Aykroyd, who was briefly engaged to Fisher in 1980, tweeted she was his “beautiful, brilliant, funny, wise, kind and generous Blues Sister.” In 2011, Fisher performed her acclaimed show “Wishful Drinking” at Toronto’s Royal Alexandra Theatre.
