NOTES

Won PHOTOPLAY Magazine's Newcomer of the Year award in 1975 for "Shampoo"

Fisher has suffered with manic depression for most of her life. The condition was first diagnosed when she was a teenager.

In November 1998, Fisher entered a substance abuse clinic reportedly over problems resulting from prescription drugs for dental surgery. Fisher had previously been treated for an addiction to cocaine and for alcoholism.

"When I was younger, I thought my mother was perfect. She was beautiful. She was funny. She was loving and kind...She could only fall from the pedestal I put her on...Having a daughter of my own made me realize what my mother had been up against while raising me."---Carrie Fisher on her mother Debbie Reynolds Biography Spring 2004
