<b>Report: </b>The daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, Fisher made her film debut as a wealthy teenager in 1975's "Shampoo" before being cast in "Star Wars" at the age of 19. Post-"Star Wars," Fisher has been cast in supporting roles in films -- usually as the acerbic best friend -- and in various guest spots on TV, most recently on "30 Rock." Fisher developed a separate career as a bestselling novelist of such thinly disguised autobiographical novels as "Postcards From the Edge." A well-respected script doctor, she's even been a writer on the Academy Awards. And her turbulent life -- including drug problems, failed marriages and struggles with bipolar disorder -- has been an open book and even a stage play. Currently, she has a recurring role -- Angela as Mon Mothma -- on "Family Guy."
