|Carrie Fisher as Slave Leia was a natural for the first
inductee into the Celebrity Slave Girl department of Bondagerotica. All
of her scenes as Slave Leia amounted to less than three minutes of
screen time in Return of the Jedi, the sixth installment in the Star
Wars saga, but it had that rare combination of The Sexy and the
Plausibly Deniable that made it resonate in pop culture.
Science fiction fans by the hundreds have shown up at Cons over the years dressed in Slave Liea costumes, and now many celebrities have done the same. There was even an episode of "Friends" in which Jennifer Anniston wore a Slave Leia costume in order to crank boyfriend Ross's Slave Leia fetish.
Slave Leia fans owe it all to Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia as the very avatar of the spunky, self-possessed princess, always ready to take the risks she had to take to oppose the Empire, but then when she played Slave Leia she was able to bring the right mixture of defiance and smoky sensuality to the role to make it work ... a not inconsiderable feat of acting. Way to bring the slave girl heat, Carrie Fisher!
