    Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher, 60, went into cardiac arrest on a flight from London to Los Angeles on Friday.

    Eyewitnesses claim Fisher received emergency CPR mid-flight. Law enforcement officials confirmed Fisher was rushed to the hospital moments after the flight landed. Her condition was “not good,” according to media reports, upon her initial hospitalization. A member of the Fisher's family said she was is in stable condition as of late Friday evening. 

    ​World-famous for her role as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars Trilogy and in the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Fisher is also the author of five best-selling books. 

    She has been on a recent tour promoting her new book ‘The Princess Diarist.’
