After suffering a heart attack on December 23, Carrie Fisher was reported to be in stable condition. Despite medical efforts, the 60-year-old died this morning.
One of the funniest videos we have of Carrie and Oscar was from The Force Awakens red carpet, as you can re-watch below:
In an interview to Vulture, while promoting The Force Awakens, Oscar also told how he met her.
The first time I met her was a dinner that we all had when the cast was first arriving. Immediately, she just wasn’t interested in small talk. She even said it: “I’m sorry, I just can’t do small talk. Let’s just get into it.” She talked about her fears and her insecurities, and she’s so refreshingly off-grid. I love it, I love it. She’s a truth-teller.
Rest in Power, Carrie! May the Force always be with you!
Sir Alec Guinness really didn’t enjoy his time on the Star Wars set as Obi Wan Kenobi. That was revealed by a Letter’s Live letter read out by Star Wars star Oscar Isaac earlier this year, and now we’ve got the video from his reading. Guinness wrote that his A New Hope dialogue was “rubbish” and called co-star Harrison Ford a “languid man” in a letter to his friend Anne Kaufman in 1977. Watch it:

I’m back from my vacation, and now updates are going to resume. After watching Star Wars for three times already, I can finally update with articles from the film without the worry on being spoilered. And I can say that it’s being pretty satisfying to see everyone deeply in love with Oscar after the film release. The amount of friends that contacted me asking about other of his films to watch, was really amazing.
Star Wars is about to become the top-grossing title in history. According to THR, the film raced past Furious 7 and Marvel’s The Avengers at the worldwide box office on Monday to land at No. 4 on the list of the all-time top-grossing films with a staggering total of $1.54 billion, not accounting for inflation. The film is yet to open on China, on this weekend, and there’s already some box office predictions. Despite being #1 or not, the Star Wars mania is everywhere.
Oscar Isaac attended this Wednesday (16) the European premiere for Star Wars: The Force Awakens held at Leicester Square in London, England. We have a few pictures added in our gallery:
