Carrie Fisher claims she had an affair with co-star Harrison Ford while filming Star Wars.

The actress has managed to keep it a secret for 40 years, but the 60-year-old has now revealed she enjoyed a whirl-wind romance with the actor.

Carrie, who played Princess Leia in the franchise, was just 19 at the time, while Ford was a then 33-year-old married father-of-two.

The pair were filming the first Star Wars in 1976 when the affair took place.

“It was so intense,” Carrie told People magazine.

“It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend.”

According to an excerpt from her memoir The Princess Diarist, quoted by Radar Online, the actor offered to drive her home one night because she was “wine sodden” and they ended up in bed together.

The pair’s romance came to an end when filming wrapped, but she remembers their brief romance fondly.

She says she found him “really handsome” while she was sexually “inexperienced”.

“I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him. He was kind.”

The actor’s marriage to Mary Marquardt came to an end in 1979, though Carrie insisted it was “for reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with me”.

Mirror has contacted a spokesperson for Harrison Ford for comment.
