Time has an interview with Princess, I'm sorry General Leia herself, Carrie Fisher. Read a couple of choice quotes below...
I fell in love with Carrie Fisher when I was a five year old boy, and dammit I'm still in love with her now. Princess Leia was the first powerful female character I was aware of as a child, grabbing laser guns and rescuing the swaggering boys who came to save her. Her lightning fast dialogue and iconic hair do served to hide the laser focused intellect that defines Carrie Fisher. Now Carrie returns that the role that turned her into a role model, sex symbol and bubble bath dispensing plastic figurine, but was returning to Star Wars a difficult decision for the actress?
How does Carrie Fisher feel Princess Leia has change in the 32 years since she was last in the galaxy far, far away?
Every time I hear Carrie Fisher talk I find her charming, self deprecating and completely aware of how fandom views her. I can't wait to see her back in action. Read the full Time interview here.
