Carrie Fisher Star Wars Audition Tape

December 27 we lost Carrie Fisher, an actress, writer, and mental health advocate best known for her portrayal of Princess Leia Organa, following a heart attack while on board a returning flight from London.  There’s no denying that the role of Leia is iconic and paved the way for strong, witty independent women on the big screen.  Check out Carrie Fisher’s audition video that helped her earn the legendary role even though she was reportedly up against actresses like Jodie Foster and Cindy Williams.  Fisher can still be seen in Star Wars Episode VIII that opens next December.
