Carrie Fisher's Heart Attack. Reactions From The Star Wars Community


Carrie Fisher has had a major heart attack and went into cardiac arrest minutes before the end of the London to LA flight that she was on.

Her brother Todd said she was in intensive care in Los Angeles:

"If everyone could just pray for her that would be good," he told Entertainment Tonight. "The doctors are doing their thing and we don't want to bug them. We are waiting by patiently."

Fisher had been on tour promoting her latest book, The Princess Diarist.  A medic who was travelling on the plane administered CPR.  Paramedics then spent a further 15 minutes administering more CPR to Fisher before getting a pulse, TMZ reported. The actress was on a ventilator in the UCLA medical centre.

From everyone here at The Bearded Trio, Our thoughts are with you Princess.  Keep fighting.

Here's a timeline of the unfortunate event that was posted on Reddit earlier today:

13:03 PST: YouTuber Anna Akana and her boyfriend comedian Brad Gage tweeted that Fisher stopped breathing for approximately 10 minutes on their flight from London to Los Angeles. They were seated in front of Fisher in first class.
13:13 PST: TMZ is reporting Fisher had a 'massive heart attack' 15 minutes prior to landing. A medical professional on the flight administered CPR until the plane reached the gate at LAX where paramedics took over care.
14:30 PST: LA Times is reporting that Fisher is in 'critical condition' at a hospital following 'full cardiac arrest.'
14:45 PST: TMZ is reporting Fisher is currently at UCLA Medical Center on a ventilator. Paramedics worked on her for 15 minutes after landing before they were able to get a pulse.

and in stable condition. See Below
16:29 PST: ABC is reporting that Fisher is in an intensive care unit.

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
