Actor Oscar Isaac reminisces on filming some very intense scenes with the late Carrie Fisher for Star Wars: The Last Jedi….

With Star Wars Celebration Orlando behind us, and with the knowledge that the late Carrie Fisher will not, in fact, be appearing in Star Wars: Episode IX, fans are preparing themselves to watch Fisher’s General Leia on screen for the last time in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Knowing that Fisher’s final Star Wars performance will be in The Last Jedi, her co-star Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron) talked to Business Insider about filming some intense scenes with iconic Star Wars actress.

"I can’t give anything away but there was a scene where there was some physicality there and it was shot just over and over and over. She relished the physicality of it, let me just say. It was pretty intense."

Isaac goes on to talk about how Fisher was always trying to bring levity to the set of The Last Jedi, and he mentions that she always had a Coke in her hands when not filming. Fisher would always try to make him laugh, during his scenes.

Fisher didn’t get much screen time in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, however, Lucasfilm has stated that she will get much more attention in The Last Jedi.

Disney CEO, Bob Iger has made no qualms about Lucasfilm’s plans, going forward, with the likeness of Carrie Fisher in future Star Wars films. Fisher’s General Leia will not be digitally recreated, as they did with young Leia in Rogue One.
