Carrie Fisher Hooked Up With a 'Star Wars' Costar and I am Shocked

Back in the late ’70s, when they were filming Star Wars, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill were just two young, attractive nobodies. There they were, spending hours together on a set with a bunch of moving trash cans, a giant dog, and a dude in a gold-plated suit. Who could blame them if something happened? Certainly, Luke and Leia had an attraction and shared a little kiss that in hindsight is a little weird because they’re on-screen brother and sister.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Hamill notes that there was a bit of a love triangle on set. As Fisher revealed in her memoir, which was released shortly before her death, she and Harrison Ford were having an affair during that first movie, even though she was 19 and he was 33 and married. Hamill says that he didn’t know at the time.

“I’m glad I didn’t know before, as it probably really would have affected me. By the time I found out, I just thought it was hilarious,” he said. “But you know men—even if we don’t want to have a relationship, it’s just in our nature to jockey for affection.”

Which is also good, because Fisher and Hamill had their own little romance going on.

Granted, Fisher was a teenager, and he was in his early 20s at the time. But while The Guardian‘s Hadley Freeman is shocked at this revelation, Hamill seems pretty chill about it.

There’s definitely going to be a lot of fan fiction about this.
