In one situation, an unscrupulous producer stepped over the line with Fisher’s director friend Heather Ross. Taking things into her hands as Princess Leia would, Fisher delivered a terrible box with a clear message to anybody who dared abuse women.

However, Fisher went beyond her acting roles to significantly impact film and culture. She broke the mold of what people expected from a princess and proved they didn’t have to be helpless victims. Fisher bravely spoke about her mental health and addiction difficulties as a writer, actor, and advocate, helping to remove the stigma associated with these conditions for countless others.

Fisher’s dedication to her friends was unwavering even when she wasn’t in the spotlight. The filmmaker Heather Ross, a friend of hers, was caught in a terrible scenario with a predatory Hollywood executive.

Fisher was so determined that she devised a scheme to send a message the predator would never forget. To show her distaste for the predator’s actions, Fisher channeled her inner Princess Leia and bought a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli in Westwood.

The American actress wrapped the terrible present and put it in a lovely Tiffany box, the contrast between the two providing a potent metaphor for the deceit of the predator’s appeal. Fazed by the dangers, Fisher embarked on a perilous expedition to hand deliver the item.

In a scenario reminiscent of The Godfather, Fisher gave the producer the Tiffany box containing the gruesome present. In addition to the repulsive scene, Fisher also included a message with a severe warning that could be taken only literally.

“‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box,’”

The Wonderwell actress’ outspokenness against sexual assault and harassment in the entertainment industry motivated others to do the same. Fisher’s impact on the lives of struggling people has gone well beyond her time in the spotlight.
