Carrie Fisher’s Hand Annotated Star Wars Scripts Reveal How She Worked with Harrison Ford to Change the Words and Create More Steamy Dialogue
Carrie Fisher’s working script, which she used and notated for her role as Princess Leia in The Empire Strikes Back, will soon be offered up for auction. The script has over 1,000 handwritten notes that show Fisher’s tweaks and personal additions to the film’s dialogue. These personal touches are especially noticeable in a number of scenes with Hans Solo, Harrison Ford’s character in the franchise. The document is part of a larger sale of Fisher’s assets, and is expected to sell for at least $50,000.
