Let me start this off by saying that Carrie Fisher is not a Princess, she’s a QUEEN. I’ve never had more fun at a Q&A…probably because she didn’t really allow anyone to ask questions. She talked a lot about celebrities not being “down to earth” (because if they were, we wouldn’t say that about them), face creams, and the fact that she can’t keep secrets. She didn’t really talk about Star Wars much, but she did touch on the (in)famous gold bikini. She said the guys loved it (duh) and the girls forgave her for it because she yelled at the men in the movies and in the end (just like the rest of us), she ended up getting older. To be honest, it was absolutely insane in the BEST way possible.
Carrie successfully avoided talking about the new movie, except for a brief story about how lovely it was to be with Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford again. Because she’s a “constant divulger,” it’s just not safe for her to talk about the new movie – and I prefer it that way, to be honest.
Here’s a Twitter recap – I tried to rapidly tweet as much as I possibly could but there were so many gems, I missed quite a few. I’ve also included a short video to give you a taste of how wonderful she is. Next week you’ll get a full recap from Sevi and I on Stephanie Drenka’s blog, but I just HAD to share this as soon as I could!
Long live Princess Leia.
TONS of good stuff planned for tomorrow, but if I’m being honest I’m not sure how it can top what I experienced tonight!
Tickets for tomorrow and Sunday are still available at the on-site box office starting at 10AM each day! You do NOT want to miss out so get yourself to the Dallas Convention Center – I’ll be there tomorrow in time for Gillian Anderson’s Q&A at 11:45 🙂
