“It was so intense,” the actress-author, 60, tells PEOPLE exclusively of the real-life romance die-hard fans of the franchise have wished for since Han Solo and Princess Leia captured hearts on-screen. “It was Han and Leia during the week, and Carrie and Harrison during the weekend,” she says. 

After spending their first night together following a birthday party for director George Lucas, Fisher was wracked by self-doubt. “I looked over at Harrison. A hero’s face — a few strands of hair fell over his noble, slightly furrowed brow,” she writes. “How could you ask such a shining specimen of a man to be satisfied with the likes of me?” 

Although their unlikely romance took Fisher by complete surprise and ran its course once the film wrapped, she remembers the time fondly. “I was so inexperienced, but I trusted something about him,” she says. “He was kind.”
