When I was ten, my parents took me to the cinema to see a film that would change my life. I didn’t know it at the time though. To me, I had just seen the best film ever, and the woman in it, I wanted to marry her. That was in 1977. In 1980, I went to see another film with her in. The follow-up to the previous one. They had subheadings to them now. Then in 1983, I went to see the third in the trilogy. Then I went back and watched it again, and again, and again.
I adored the female lead, and read up all about her. She was my idol. As a teenager, she was what every teen wanted to have as a wife.
Princess Leia will always, always be in my heart, and I am more than devastated over her death.
Carrie Fisher had her problems, but she fought through them, and came out the other side. She was, and always will be, my favourite.
Goodnight Princess. May the force be with you. Always.
