(CNS) – Carrie Fisher’s will was admitted to probate Monday and a personal representative was named to administer the late actress’ estate.
Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Brenda Penny directed the administrator, Dennis King, to file a status report or a petition for final distribution by Sept. 10, 2018. King previously filed court papers stating that the estate had $6.8 million in assets.
The will asks that the residue of the estate be made part of the Carrie Fisher Living Trust. King is the trustee of the trust and the instrument’s beneficiary is Fisher’s daughter, 25-year-old actress Billie Catherine Lourd. Created Jan. 15, 2016, the will states that the executor is authorized to pay the estate’s federal, state and inheritance taxes and to use his discretion regarding the preliminary and final distribution of property.
Fisher, known for playing Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” film series, died Dec. 27 at age 60, a day before the death of her mother, actress Debbie Reynolds, at age 84.
