RIP, Carrie Fisher.

Carrie Fisher
(October 21, 1956 – December 27, 2016)

If you grew up in the late 70s, Star Wars (1977) was a part of your life — whether you liked it or not. So for many of us out there, it’s quite a blow to lose Carrie Fisher. (Kids of the 80s are going through the same thing with George Michael.)

Here she is on location for The Empire Strikes Back (1980), the second Star Wars movie. With a film so big and filled with special effects — and Empire is an epic in every sense of the word, it’s easy to overlook what the actors are doing. Pay attention next time, she’s really terrific.

    What a shocker. We’d just left the cinema after seeing the latest Star Wars film, Rogue One (no spoilers on the final amazing scene), to be told within 5 minutes that Carrie Fisher had died. If you’ve seen that final scene, you will know how we all felt. Very sad.
