Oscar Isaac, who recently stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, shared his admiration for the late Carrie Fisher and recited a funny incident that took place while filming a scene with her in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
He said, “A large amount of the stuff I got to do was with Carrie, which was amazing. I remember the first day of shooting was a scene with Carrie. I remember it was a scene where I come up and talk with her, and she is very upset with me and slaps me.”
“And Rian Johnson, the director, kept doing it over and over. I think it ended up being 27 takes of Carrie just leaning in. And every time she’d hit like a different spot on my face.”
The 38-year-old-actor also said that Fisher was the funniest, most down to earth person he’d ever worked with.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled to release on Decemebr 15 in the US. The movie stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, Benicio DelToro, Adam Driver and Carrie Fisher.
