Right after the news broke yesterday, I went back to the piece I wrote on Carrie Fisher's appearance at a book festival in Cherry Hill four years ago—I didn't cover many celebs when I worked full-time in news, and she was both the biggest and best of the bunch.

It was strange, though—this was Princess Leia (that's General Organa to you now) in Cherry Hill, yet the only media reps there were me and a videographer from 6ABC. Not a soul otherwise; I couldn't figure it out—how do you pass up that opportunity?

Fisher was every bit as charming and disarming as you've seen on talk shows and elsewhere; she was open, brutally honest—especially about less savory topics, like mental health and drug use—and, unlike most celebs, simply human. That's what struck me the most: her willingness to acknowledge all the aspects of her life and those came to shape her (the second-most striking thing: she was tiny!).

Of course, she was still a celeb in some ways—coyly saying, "What do you think?" when asked about a possible fling with Harrison Ford (which we now know happened). Still, the insights she offered, whether on her life or acting or her writing career, were far more than you would've expected out of a little book festival in the South Jersey suburbs.

She also gave me something of a scoop—amid swirling rumors in the wake of the Episode VII announcement, Fisher flatly said she and her original Star Wars cast members were going to reprise their roles (after making a droll comment about Jewish Princess Leia on a kosher planet). I published that right at the top of the story, and my little suburban news site lit up.
