Spotlight on Princess Leia

Character Name: Princess Leia
Birth Year: 19 BBY
Home World: Alderaan
Species: Human
Profession: Galactic Senator, Princess, Leader of Rebel Alliance
Portrayed by: Carrie Fisher
Appeared in: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi

She's a princess by virtue of her adopted father, the ruler of Alderaan. She's the natural child of Padme and Anakin. She's the twin sister of Luke Skywalker. She's the girlfriend of bad-boy Han Solo. And she's the leader of the Rebel Alliance. In short, she's got a lot on her plate.

The first time we meet her, she is standing up to Darth Vader so there is no denying that she is a "force" to be reckoned with and definitely up to whatever task is required.

We give you Princess Leia ... she's our only hope.
