Dan Aykroyd Writes Touching Tribute To Former Fiance, Carrie Fisher

January 27, 2017

Actor Dan Aykroyd has paid tribute to the late Carrie Fisher in the latest issue of London's Empire magazine. Fisher and Aykroyd met when she hosted "Saturday Night Live" in 1978 and they fell in love while working together on "The Blues Brothers" in 1980. Fisher died December 27 at the age of 60.

"While in Chicago we obtained blood tests for compatibility from an East Indian female doctor," Aykroyd wrote. "Contemplating marriage, I gave Carrie a sapphire ring and subsequently in the romance she gave me a Donald Roller Wilson oil painting of a monkey in a blue dress next to a tiny floating pencil, which I kept for years until it began to frighten my children."
