Carrie Fisher plays the role of Leia Organa in "Star Wars" 7. Movie buffs who have seen the original trilogy will remember her to be the slender princess captured by Jabba the Hutt. The actress had gained a little weight since the original trilogy and according to her website she is a "failed anorexic."
The actress reportedly lost about 18 kgs since she was cast for the role of Leia in "Star Wars" 7. Fans got to see her new look when she arrived at an auction event in California in May 2014. The event was also attended by her mother Debbie Reynolds.
Mark Hamill was seen sporting a beard recently. The actor reportedly grew the beard because he was contractually obligated to do so for the upcoming movie. He will be playing the role of the Jedi Master Luke Skywalker. The actor also spoke about the accident of his fellow cast member Harrison Ford.
Harrison Ford had met with a leg injury while filming a scene for "Star Wars" 7. The actor was recently seen walking about with a crutch. Mark Hamill said that he had heard that the actor was doing fine.
The production team will be taking a two week hiatus in August following the leg injury of Harrison Ford. The actor is expected to return to the sets of "Star Wars" 7 soon. The movie is set to be on track and is not expected to miss the target release date.
"Star Wars" 7 will be released on Dec 18, 2015, in Australia, Canada, U.S, UK and New Zealand. The franchise will be making a comeback after a decade. The most recent movie from the franchise was released in the year 2005 and fans are eagerly looking forward to the new movie.
