It’s undeniable that Carrie Fisher was a rare talent — and she’d have to be, to charm the notoriously picky George Lucas with her Star Wars audition. In a recently resurfaced video, originally posted on YouTube in 2006, Fisher sits down to read a scene opposite Harrison Ford (whom Lucas initially didn’t want to cast, but he was so good in the screen tests that Ford became his Han Solo).
Sometimes, no matter how stringent the safety measures on a movie set are, someone gets punched in the face. Stunt accidents happen all the time to even the best and most careful actors, but it’s always better when it’s an accident among co-stars who get along. It seems like Ryan Gosling and Harrison Ford have become friends during production on Blade Runner 2049, but of course friendship couldn’t stop Gosling from taking an unexpected punch to the nose.
