Two things I feared when I heard Disney was making new Star Wars movies: 1. They’re going to suck. 2. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are really f*cking old.
While reprising his iconic role as Han Solo, 71-year-old Ford fell and broke his ankle on the set in a way that involved the door of the Millennium Falcon either opening or closing or just plain existing. Gwendoline Christie, who plays Brienne of Tarth on Game of Thrones and has been cast as Chewbacca in Star Wars 7 sadly wasn’t around to break his fall.
(She’s not really playing Chewbacca, I’m an asshole and still bitter about getting her in a “Which Game of Thrones woman are you?” quiz instead of The Queen.)
