Carrie Fisher's Star Wars audition tape is even more impressive and heartbreaking today

Carrie Fisher will never be defined solely by her role as Princess Leia but to many that's who she'll always be and since the news broke of her death yesterday and fans mourn her passing, her audition tape for 'Star Wars' has resurfaced online.

Sitting opposite Harrison Ford, Fisher is put through her paces by Ford playing Han Solo and it's clearly an exchange that Fisher is revelling in.

Knowing what we know now, about her affair with Harrison Ford and about how the films would go on to change the course of her life forever, watching this very early work as Princess Leia is very bittersweet. The final moment when she says her name is just too much.
