Princess Leia, A Timeless Classic

I always had a crush on Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher did such a great job with that character. She was a sassy, take charge kind of chic but at the same time likeable and somewhat vulnerable. If you watch the original Star Wars audition tapes you'll see some of the other actesses that tried out for the role. One actress was Cindy Williams from Lavern and Shirley Fame, so glad she didn't get the role but Carrie did!


Back in the late seventys Kenner had a line of 12 inch tall Star Wars Dolls. I remember they had all the main characters. My neighbor mixed them in with her Barbie collection.

Here is a Vintage Obi Wan Kenobi Doll from the same collection:
