The making of a princess

Though an accomplished performer across multiple genres, to many people today, Carrie Fisher is best known for her work in the Star Wars franchise.

Who could forget the mysterious woman in white we see fleeing Imperial forces, imparting crucial information to two droids before facing her own inevitable capture? Of course, this woman turns out to be more than just your standard princess trope from fiction: She is a warrior, a Rebel leader, and a fighter every step of the way.

Following her sudden and unexpected death on December 27, it feels as though the entire world has been in mourning, but none more than her family, former co-stars, and Star Wars fans everywhere.

Now we’re looking back to the happier moments to reflect on the incredible life and work of an extraordinarily talented actress, performer, and advocate. Carrie Fisher’s original audition tapes for Star Wars are living proof that she was destined for the role.
