Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford became instant stars

Carrie Fisher was 19 years old when she filmed the role of Princess Leia in the very first Star Wars film, which eventually became known as Star Wars: A New Hope. Released in 1977, it made instant celebrities of the three lead actors - Carrie, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker and Harrison Ford as Han Solo.

    She was an amazing person, slim and pretty. But life was never kind to her, drugs and mental illness changed her.

    I still saw a person who made Star Wars a reality of fiction, in action figures and make believe.

    I watched, and rewatched these movies over and over again. I enjoyed Carrie’s role as Leia, we all wanted to be her.

    The Reprisal roles of her in Star Wars: Force awakens (I watched) and a new one coming out in 2017 will be a memory (keep sake).

    But the true likeness of Carrie can never be replaced and I hope Star Wars can create a memoir of her character in future movies. đŸ˜¢
