Luke withdrew further into shadow. He tried to hide, but there was no way to hide what was in his mind—Leia was in pain. Her agony cried to him now, and his spirit cried with her. He tried to shut it out, to shut it up, but the cry was loud, and he couldn’t stifle it, couldn’t leave it alone, had to cradle it openly, to give it solace. (“Return of the Jedi” by James Kahn)

The dynamics of Fisher, Ford, and Hamill’s off-screen relationship was an almost mirror image of Star Wars. Hamill later admitted he had a serious crush on his costar. Fisher had been awestruck by Ford’s tall good looks and laconic manner the moment she met him. "You look at Harrison and you listen, he looks like he’s carrying a gun even if he isn’t. He’s this incredibly attractive male animal, in every sense of the word. This carpenter stud," she said. "I’ve never had that same impression of anyone else in my life. I knew he was going to be a star - someone of the order of Tracy or Bogart." The trio became inseparable - Ford and Fisher particularly so. "Whenever anyone couldn’t find Harrison, you’d say, ‘Have you tried Carrie Fisher’s changing room?’" said Dave Prowse.
