Carrie had a hell of a sense of humour. Loved watching any interviews she did in recent years.

She at least got to finish her parts for the next Star Wars film but they will need redo the script for the next film as she was due to be in that one as well.

She will be sadly missed.

What a horrible way to end the year, feels like there'll be more to come though

I'm pretty sure that upon sunrise on January 1st 2017, the living celebrities of this world will breathe a collective sigh of relief that they made it! However, I suspect 2017 will be just as awful in terms of death toll in their profession/field.

This thread will continue to "thrive", and Beans will get just as irked about people commenting about it. Life goes on though...unless of course, it doesn't. :P

I don't go in for all the public displays of weeping and wailing like there was for Diana, but yeah of course it's a blow when an artist or celeb you like moves on. If only because it reminds you that you're on the same conveyer belt of death :shock:

Debbie Reynolds joins her daughter, aged 84. Wow, still 3 days to go - room for plenty more yet.

In truth, this thread is pretty mild compared to the histrionic fake grief on display elsewhere and there's not much in the way of ridiculous retconning of people's lives in here either. And nothing's as bad as the move towards sainthood of Jo Cox, who obviously would have cured cancer with her natural goodness had she lived.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Nope not seen it yet. A CGI replacement for a huge amount of the film would just look wrong if that's what you are maybe referencing? Maybe a very small part they could get away with it without it looking to crazy.

The problem is with CGi in Sci-fi films is the type of person that goes to see them can spot it

Could always do what they did with Spock/Nimoy in the last trek film

What they managed in terminator was great, but that took years to do with still images from every Schwarzenegger film that had been made.

Died of grief, apparently. How's that for overreacting to a celebs' death! :wink:

But seriously, it must be a tough time for the family. :(

She was hardly in Episode 7, I reckon they'll have enough footage, body doubles and CGI work to get her into episode 9 if needed for the brief part she plays. Unless of course she was intended to be a big part of the Kylo Ren plot further in.

Not seen any Star Wars other than the initial, classic trilogy. Nonetheless, I do hear the rumour that Peter Cushing could be up for an Oscar for his portrayal of Grand Moff in the last instalment, despite being dead for 22 years prior to scripting/casting/filming. So if he is convincing enough - and, if true about the Oscar, is in the film for sufficiently long enough to qualify for nomination - then I think fleeting(ish) appearances by Leia would be a relatively straightforward matter.
