Digital painting of Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia Organa (Star Wars Episode IV-VI)
Star Wars isn't just a boys' toy - not as long as Princess Leia Organa is around, that is. Not for her the simpering squeaks of a damsel in distress - Leia is opinionated, gutsy and as defiant in the face of authority as her father. Commendably, she never became mere eye candy in the series: even in the bikini she kicks ass, and by the end of Jedi, she's the one wearing the trousers in her relationship with Han.
"Why, you stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking... NERFHERDER!" - Princess Leia Organa
