Fisher Photos, Lame Leia Questions
"Star Wars" fan Leigh-Anne Dennison sent an e-mail that included some nice photos she took at Thursday night's charity premiere at the Uptown. I've included a couple here, including one of Debbie Reynolds and daughter Carrie Fisher. I particularly like the one of the trooper standing next to a sign that reads Children's Defense (the event benefitted the Children's Defense Fund):
Even though she's already seen the movie, Leigh-Anne and her husband are taking a vacation day on Thursday to see it again. She also shared this memory of seeing "Star Wars" for the first time when she was 7: "My own memory of the first film was that it was love at first sight. It was 'our day out with Daddy.' At age 7, I was captivated by this big space fairy tale and even at that young age, smitten with a handsome, young Mark Hamill. For sometime after, I carried around a note in my little girl's purse that read, 'I'm going to marry Luke Skywalker.'" Very sweet. Who says "Star Wars" fans are only guys?
Speaking of female fans, I also received a message from Eliza M., who added this suggestion about ways to annoy people waiting in line for "Star Wars": "Ask anyone dressed as Princess Leia who they're supposed to be. When she answers, say 'Aren't you supposed to be wearing that metal bikini?' This has happened to me. On Halloween. It is very annoying." I believe you, Eliza. I wonder if anyone thought to ask Carrie Fisher the same question the other night. I'm sure she would have looo-ved that.
