Carrie Fisher Bio Details
Date of birth
Beverly Hills, California, USA
Face up to the face
At the tender age of 19 Carrie Fisher starred in the first of the Star Wars films. At the time she signed away her 'likeness' for free, and has said she has regretted it ever since. Over the years the franchise has found a myriad of ways to cash in on the image of Fisher as Princess Leia. Fisher says that during her post Star Wars battle with drugs she even encountered a strain of marijuana named after Princess Leia.
In space, no-one can here you support
While filming Star Wars, Fisher was told by Lucas that she couldn't wear a bra under her now iconic white dress. When she asked him why he simply stated 'because there is no underwear in space.' He claimed that the weightlessness of space would result in a person being strangled by their underwear. She therefore had to use gaffer tape instead.
