Carrie Fisher could speak French.

I was one of the original “Star Wars” fans dating back to 1977. I did not know that Carrie Fisher was fluent in French. Here is a short interview that she recorded back in 1977 shortly after the release of the movie.

She does very well in the interview. Only have a bit of trouble with the complicated French numbers. She seems to have a good understanding of the language, and was able to give reasonable answers to complex questions.

Star Wars was released under the title of «La Guerre des étoiles» {the war of the stars} in France.
