2. Carrie Fisher

The original Princess Leia is back, minus her iconic hair buns and, we assume, skimpy slave costume. Carrie Fisher is the progeny of Hollywood royalty, being the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds. However, todays younger generation knows her more than her famous folks because of this iconic role. Nothing she’s done since has come close to her success in the original Star Wars trilogy. She had supporting roles in When Harry Met Sally and Hannah and her Sisters, plus a few bit parts on TV. She’s been open about her battle with bipolar disorder and has written several best-selling memoirs plus starred in some stage plays that explore her struggles. We’re looking forward to seeing Leia back on the big screen, and word is Fisher lost 40 pounds to reprise her role.
