A man learned the hard way that you don't take a cell phone call when Princess Leia is performing.
Carrie Fisher, who portrayed Princess Leia in the "Star Wars" movies, had her one-woman performance of "Wishful Drinking" interrupted twice (you read right, twice) Saturday at the Victoria Theatre by a cell phone user.
A man near the front row apparently couldn't resist the urge to answer two calls.
Fisher laughed it off when the man answered the phone in the show's first act, asking if his wife was in labor or something, Diane Schoeffler-Warren, a spokeswoman for the Victoria Association, said.
She was not in a laughing mood when he answered it again in the second act, Warren said.
The man left the theater with Fisher and her sharp tongue on his heels.
"She told him how rude he was," Warren said. "She handled it with humor, but at the same time, she called him out."
Local Author John Scalzi memorializes her in a short, yet very sweet, blog post on his personal site:
Obviously she will be remembered for Star Wars — she played one of its most iconic characters, who was a general, a senator and a princess. But as much as I liked her in that role, she came most alive for me when I learned that she was a writer, and a good one, and not only a good one, but an extraordinarily witty one, one who was called in to save movie scripts and who could write novels and memoirs with characters and turns of phrase that inspired me at least to want to be that witty too.
One thing is certain -- whether for her roles on film or off, Carrie Fisher was a beloved member of Hollywood, and in galaxies both near and far, far away ... she will be missed.
