Carrie Fisher has seen almost as much adventure in her life as her big screen counterpart Princess Leia. Now, she's taking her breadth of experience and offering advice through a new column on The Guardian entitled "Advice From The Dark Side."
You're not reading that wrong - Leia may be solidly entrenched in the Light Side of the Force, but Fisher apparently sees herself a little differently. According to her introductory column, she's willing to offer advice on almost anything.
“I can’t help you with your homework; but I can tell you what I did if I’ve had an experience like yours,” Fisher explains. “Throw it at my wall and see what sticks. What you do with that info is up to you.”
“If my life wasn’t funny it would just be true and that’s unacceptable. Tell me your story, I’ll tell you mine,” she continues. “We’ll meet at the pub and get back into the swing. What have you got to lose? Time mostly (which is a human construct), but you’ll have an anecdote and advice in exchange – who could ask for anything more?”
Meanwhile, her fictional father (even though he's several decades younger than Fisher) Hayden Christensen, who played Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, says he's game to return to Star Wars any chance he's offered.
“Absolutely. In a heartbeat, for sure,” Christensen told eTalk when asked if he’d give Star Wars another go. “Being a part of that world was a huge deal for me, and was a good four/five years of my life. I have fond memories and good friendships from that whole time. But if they ever gave me the call, I would sign up in a heartbeat.”

Lucasfilm had confirmed that there was internal talk of Christensen reprising his role - albeit as a Force Ghost - in a scene that was cut from the script of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
