Carrie Fisher’s ashes carried in giant Prozac pill urn; her brother explains

The ashes of Carrie Fisher, the actress best known for playing Princess Leia in “Star Wars,” were carried to her burial site in a giant Prozac pill urn.


Fisher, who became an outspoken advocate for mental illness after being diagnosed with bipolar disorder in her 20s, died two days after Christmas after suffering a heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles a few days earlier.

Her brother, Todd Fisher, is reportedly the man photographed carrying the Prozac urn.

Fisher spoke with the press following Friday’s funeral services and explained the decision.

“Carrie’s favorite possession was a giant Prozac pill that she bought many years ago. A big pill,” he told reporters. “She loved it, and it was in her house, and Billie and I felt it was where she’d want to be.”

“We couldn’t find anything appropriate. Carrie would like that,” Fisher added. “It was her favorite thing, and so that’s how you do it. And so they’re together, and they will be together here and in heaven, and we’re OK with that.”
