Late actor Carrie Fisher warned actor and co-star Daisy Ridley that appearing in Star Wars sequel trilogy would change her dating life forever. Fisher, who was known most for having played Princess Leia in the popular epic space-opera film franchise, spoke to Ridley about the way stardom would impact her search for love and said that her personal life was set to become more complicated, reports mirror.co.uk.
While speaking to Vogue magazine, Ridley said Fisher told her that as a Star Wars star romance was hard “because you don’t want to give people the ability to say ‘I had sex with Princess Leia’. “I’d never met anyone openly bipolar before, who discussed loving glitter because of her LSD days,” she said. Carrie Fisher was nominated for three Saturn Awards for her performance.
Daisy Ridley will also appear in the upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie’s book of the same name, Murder on the Orient Express. She will play the role of Mary Debenham in the film that is directed by Dunkirk actor Kenneth Branagh.
Fisher passed away in 2016 at the age of 60. She first starred as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars film in 1977. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the trailer of which was released a few days ago, will be Carrie Fisher’s last film. The Last Jedi is scheduled for a December 15 release this year. She also appeared in the first movie in the sequel trilogy: Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, and Lupita Nyong’o.
