Only Carrie Fisher would make the interring of her ashes unique. While her plans for a comical obituary inspired by a conversation with George Lucas during the filming Star Wars didn’t quite pan out, something perhaps even more magical did: her brother, Todd Fisher, and daughter, Billie Lourd, decided to put her remains inside one of her favorite possessions, a ceramic Prozac container.
But because Debbie Reynolds wouldn’t be Debbie Reynolds without having contrarian burial desires, her body was not cremated, which meant Todd merely scattered a few of his sister’s ashes into their mother’s coffin, and put the rest in the now immortal urn.
Considering Fisher’s longtime advocacy for mental health, and not being ashamed of having issues that require a need for both talk therapy and medication, a Prozac urn is only too fitting for her sendoff into the afterlife, one in which she’ll invariably enjoy a regular dosage.
Fisher said only somewhat jokingly of her ultimate burial desire: “What happens is you go to space and you become weightless. So far so good, right? But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn’t—so you get strangled by your own bra. Now I think that this would make for a fantastic obit—so I tell my younger friends that no matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.” But this is much better recompense for that wish not being fulfilled.
