Dan Akroyd Details Carrie Fisher Engagement & More in Tribute Essay

Dan Akroyd wrote a tribute to his ex fiancee Carrie Fisher after her sudden death last month.

Carrie embraced my friends and I was embraced in warmly human and Hollywood-glamorous emotional comfort, elegance and excitement,” the 64-year-old actor wrote in Empire about beginning to date in the 70s after she hosted SNL. “Debbie [Reynolds] would cook for us and Carrie’s tech-wizard brother Todd would take me on high-intensity cruises in muscle cars and on motorcycles through Beverly Hills with great young people, Jose Ferrer and Donna Ebsen.”

He went on to detail their engagement.

“While in Chicago we obtained blood tests for compatibility from an East Indian female doctor,” Dan 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.”

He also spoke about one weekend where they did drugs in a wagon in Reno.

“Having obtained some original Owsley [LSD] from our friend Tom Davis, we flew up to Reno, rented a wagon and checked in for three days of full-on weeping to Christmas classics,” Dan continued. “Certainly one of the planet’s greatest occasions where LSD was a factor.”

After moving into their new home together, Carrie ended the relationship.

“The next morning she asked me to drive her to the airport and she flew to New York,” Dan continued. “Architectural reservations notwithstanding, Carrie wasn’t shallow, we had a great time. She was also in love with Paul Simon. She married him but I hope she kept my ring.”

Carrie later went on to marry Paul Simon.
