general_organaCarrie Fisher, for me, epitomised the concept of a strong character when she became Leia Organa. Not because the character was well written, but because she was an incredible character herself.

The death of the beloved Carrie Fisher was a massive shock for most of us. Not just because she was so young – 60 years old today is young, in my books – but because she was the fiercest and most respected princess and general of the galaxy. And she had a very tragic life story that we all wished she hadn’t gone through.

So what made Carrie Fisher turn Leia into such a strong character?

For that matter, what is a strong character? And what is a strong female character?

Is even there such a thing?

Jim and I talk about it.
