“In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.”

A STAR-STRUCK HAMILL HEADED FOR VEGAS

“I had to taste groupies and fame. I went to Las Vegas to date 38-year-old showgirls. I wanted to scale all these women. That was exciting for about the first 10 minutes. Eventually, I wanted something to hold onto — and a family.”
He had enough of the fast life, and in December 1978 he and Marilou got married.

CARRIE FISHER WILL BE BACK IN "STAR WARS"
Even though the beloved actress Carrie Fisher passed away on December 27, 2016, she will continue to be a part of the "Star Wars" saga.
Director J.J. Abrams has announced that Carrie will be playing Leis once more on "Star Wars: Episode IX" due for release in December 2019:
“We desperately loved Carrie Fisher. Finding a truly satisfying conclusion to the Skywalker saga without her eluded us. We were never going to recast or use a CG character."
Carrie’s daughter, Billie Lourd, gave the director permission to include her in the movie, which will use unseen footage from "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
