Star Wars fans have been saddened this week to hear of actor Carrie Fisher’s sudden death after she suffered a massive heart attack. An interview with her on the radio program Fresh Air was played again recently, and in that interview Fisher spoke of some of her insecurities in playing the role which made her famous—Princess Leia. She felt nervous due to her young age (19) and the fact that she was playing this role where she had to boss around more experienced actors. She also felt self-conscious about her body and her appearance. She remarked that the hairdo they settled on, which was soon replicated by thousands of girls everywhere, was not her favorite since it made her face appear wider.
