While we mourn the loss of Carrie Fisher, let’s also look back at what an amazing talent she was. An accomplished author, actor, and script doctor, who punched up the scripts for (Hook, Sister Act, The Wedding Singer, and more), Fisher started her career when she was just 19.
In memory of Fisher, Business Insider posted a real treat: Carrie Fisher’s audition tape for Star Wars. Watch her and a plain-clothed Harrison Ford deliver some dialogue, which was absolutely incomprehensible at the time. Think about it: This video was shot right before Star Wars and Princess Leia were household names, but you can already see the sparks that would make her and film such a cultural explosion.
