"If there is a change, we will share it," the 84-year-old actress said in a post on Sunday. "For all her fans and friends. I thank you for your prayers & good wishes."

Fisher is best known for her legendary role as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy. Just last month, she released her memoir, The Princess Diarist, in which she opened up about a romance she claims to have sparked with co-star Harrison Ford on the set of the first Star Wars in 1976.

Fisher is survived by her mother and daughter from a previous relationship with talent agent Bryan Lourd, Scream Queens actress Billy Lourd.
