Oscar stopped by ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ last Thursday (May 26), which was also the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. He talked about his admiration for the late Carrie Fisher and some of their time together on what would be her final Star Wars film.
“A large amount of the stuff I got to do was with Carrie, which was amazing,” Isaac began. “I remember the first day of shooting was a scene with Carrie … I remember it was a scene where I come up and talk with her, and she is very upset with me and slaps me. And Rian Johnson, the director, kept doing it over and over. I think it ended up being 27 takes of Carrie just leaning in (mimics hard slapping).”
Isaac also had a funny anecdote about how he tired to initially keep his Force Awakens script after wrap, which he was supposed to give back, and finally did when Disney mentioned the lawyers were looking for it.

The Playlist – Mr. Nerdista has made a terrific video essay exploring the somewhat-convoluted thought processes of the film’s eccentric billionaire, Isaac’s Nathan Bateman. By accepting the analogy that Nathan’s house is a metaphor for his mind —sequestered, organized and manipulated— we realize that everything, even the impromptu dance session with Sunoya Mizuno’s Kyoko, happened for a reason.
If you haven’t yet seen the film, this is a perfect companion piece to watch afterwards and provide an extra morsel of insight. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
