Carrie Fisher Wants To "Get Princess Leia Right" In Star Wars: Episode VII
She's one of the most iconic characters of all time, but that doesn't mean there's no room for improvement. Carrie Fisher, speaking at the Hay Festival in Wales over the weekend, admitted that she will be using Star Wars: Episode VII as an opportunity to fine-tune her portrayal of Princess Leia.
Daily Express quoted her listing the following area in which she'll be getting it "right" this time around:
I think less British. I looked a little pretentious faking the accent.
Fisher goes on to joke that one area that clearly doesn't need a change is hairstyle. Will we be seeing those famous buns in Episode VII?
That hairdo can never really be repeated without gales of laughter. I've begged them to put the hair back on in grey and just catch me cooking with the hair, like Granny Leia.
Naturally, her appearance in front of the crowd at the fest was short on actual story details about the new movie, not that they didn't try to get it out of her:
I would get in trouble no matter how I answer that question.
