Describing working with Harrison Ford on the original Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977): Mark was 24, I was 19 and he [Harrison] was 33. He was like the big man on campus. You looked at him and you said to yourself, ‘He’s going to be a star.’

Explaining why gaffer’s tape was sometimes used under her Princess Leia costume in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope (1977): “As we all know, there is no underwear in space.”
