Princess Leia and C-3PO get personality changes

Before filming Return of the Jedi, Carrie Fisher and Anthony Daniels, who played C-3PO, both had requests. Carrie asked that Leia be softer, referring to the princess's demeanor in The Empire Strikes Back as "some sort of space bitch," while Daniels wanted C-3PO to play a more meaningful role in the third film, after having been nothing more than comedy relief in the previous film. They both got what they wanted.

    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˜¢
