It has been noted that Fisher suffered what was described as a massive heart attack on Friday while on a flight from London to Los Angeles. She had been in London filming episodes of the Amazon/Channel 4 comedy "Catastrophe." Fisher was rushed from Los Angeles International Airport to UCLA Medical Center after the plane landed around noon PT.
Fisher was the daughter of actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher, whose marriage broke up when Eddie Fisher had an affair with Elizabeth Taylor. .
As a writer, Fisher wrote episodes of "Roseanne" and "Young Indiana Jones." She co-wrote the 2001 ABC TV movie "These Old Broads," which starred Reynolds, Taylor, MacLaine and Joan Collins as actresses enjoying a sudden career revival. Fisher's stage show "Wishful Drinking" became a 2010 HBO special that earned an Emmy nomination for variety, music or comedy special.
In Fisher's personal life, she began dating musician Paul Simon in 1977 and married him in 1983, but that only lasted less than a year. Fisher had one child, daughter Billie Catherine Lourd in 1992, with CAA managing partner Bryan Lourd. Fisher's relationship with Lourd ended in 1994 and, although they were never married, Fisher frequently referred to Lourd in interviews as her second husband.
