The late ’70s brought us the very first Star Wars film. It has proven to be a franchise that stands to the test of time, spawning many other movies. The first film catapulted Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Leia Organa), and Harrison Ford (Han Solo) into fame.

Fans now know that Carrie and Harrison had an affair while filming the first movie. Carrie revealed it in her memoir decades later. At the time, Carrie was 19 years old and Harrison was 33. He was married and had two children. Their affair lasted several months.

Mark admitted, “On-set romances are always… they’re commonplace. But it’s kind of tricky because if the relationship doesn’t last and you’re on a TV series and you got four more seasons to go, it can be really awkward. It happened to me. I was with a girl who was playing my sister on a soap opera, ‘General Hospital.’”

When asked about Harrison and Carrie’s affair, Mark said, “I was so self-involved at that point, they could’ve been doing it in front of me and I wouldn’t have noticed. I was single and had my own agenda. But I was blissfully unaware, which was good for me. I think it might have been a distraction if I’d known what was going on.”
