Carrie Fisher was known for being quick-witted and funny and never attempted to blame anyone else for her personal problems, according to entertainment journalist Cameron K McEwan.
The actress and author, best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars series, has died at the age of 60.
McEwan told James Max she has written "wonderful autobiographical books. She’s honest, she doesn’t blame anyone, she takes responsibility which not a lot of people do, but another side is she’s very funny.
“She was known for being so quick-witted, and for knowing what dialogue would work," he added. “She was still very very young [in Star Wars] but George [Lucas] listened to her and took her word of what she had to say.
“She was funny, she was witty, she was very very clever, so much so that when movies were in a bit of trouble with production, with scripts, they would get her to script doctor them."
