The press tour for The Last Jedi is sure to be filled with touching and hilarious stories about the late, great Carrie Fisher. Oscar Isaac unveiled one such tale on The Late Show yesterday, describing how much fun Fisher seemed to have inflicting bodily harm on him when they filmed a scene in which General Organa has to slap Poe Dameron. “I think it ended up being like 27 takes of Carrie just leaning in, and every time she’d hit a different spot in my face,” he said, miming just how much of his visage she managed to get. (For what it’s worth he also noted in Vanity Fair’s big Star Wars piece this week: “She loved hitting me.”)

“She was by far one of the quickest-witted, funniest, most down-to-earth, real human beings I ever had the opportunity of working with, and she does amazing work in this,” he continued. “It was definitely a heartbreaker.”
