Carrier Fisher

"Post Cards from the Edge" Thank You Carrie Fisher

It's been a long time since Princess Leia came into our consciousness.  I think it was 1977 when I saw her in Star Wars.  I was at the beach, it was unbearably hot, and since I had a sun allergy I dashed into a dark, air conditioned movie theater.  And there she was, Carrie Fisher as the Princess, royalty from outer space, a young woman in an angelic white dress, a hairdo from the Germanic underworld,  being fought over by two handsome men.  That was a part I could play, I thought.
