It’s Carrie Fisher’s Birthday, Here’s a Clip of Her Star Wars Audition

Clever Girl

I constantly forget that Carrie Fisher was only nineteen when she made Star Wars, alongside co-stars six to twenty-four years her senior. She’s still a total boss in this interview tape, showing us the level at which Leia is completely aware of the political, military, and psychological consequences of her and the Rebellion’s actions and goals.

Happy Birthday, Ms. Fisher, and many happy returns!

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
