Video: Have you ever found out about something and then realised it was everything you’ve ever needed? Because that’s how I feel knowing there’s footage somewhere of Carrie Fisher slapping Oscar Isaac — as General Leia and Poe Dameron — over and over again.

On the latest episode of The Late Show, Isaac reminisced with Stephen Colbert about Fisher. “Actually a large amount of the stuff I got to do was with Carrie, which was amazing,” he said. “I remember the first day of shooting was a scene with Carrie. And it was still — often times that first day, the filmmakers, everybody’s trying to get the tone and figure it out — and I remember it was a scene where I come up and talk to her and she’s very upset with me and slaps me. And [director] Rian [Johnson] kept doing it over and over.”
“It ended up being like 27 takes of Carrie just leaning in,” Isaac finished. “And every time she’d hit like a different spot on my face.”
Look, I think we know what extra needs to be on The Last Jedi Blu-Ray Special Edition.
