As celebrities and civilians alike reel from the news of her untimely death at age 60, Carrie Fisher's Star Wars audition tape has resurfaced to remind us that—even at 19—she was ready to leave a legacy.
In the black and white footage, Fisher reads for the part of Princess Leia opposite Harrison Ford, who was then nearly 15 years older than his future costar. Despite the age difference, she *more* than holds her own.
In a statement Tuesday, Ford commended Fisher. "Carrie was one of a kind…brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless. She lived her life, bravely." 😢
