For many Star Wars fans, Carrie Fisher has been a fixture for 40 years. Princess Leia made her an icon (or was it the other way around?). However, way back in 1976 London, Carrie Fisher was a young woman nearing the end of her teen years, trying to find her way as an adult, and in the process of creating what would go on to become a worldwide phenomenon.
In her new book, The Princess Diarist, Fisher seeks to shed light upon her experiences on the set of Star Wars and off. Turns out, much of her time off set involved her older co-star, Harrison Ford. It’s a topic she has hinted at and danced around previously, but is now confirmed. For the three months they were filming Star Wars in London, Fisher had a secret affair with Ford, who was married with two young children at the time.
