Обнародовано письмо Алека Гиннесса с насмешками над сценарием "Звездных войн"

American actor Oscar Isaac has read in public the letter of the actor Alec Guinness, who played Obi-WAN Kenobi in the original trilogy of “Star wars”. The text, written during the filming of the first film, Guinness scoffs on the script George Lucas, reports NME.

“Every day I get new ridiculous dialogues on sheets of pink paper. None of these fragments does not make my character more understandable, or more bearable,” wrote the actor in 1977 his friend Anne Kaufman.

In addition, the letter shows that Guinness didn’t remember the name of Harrison Ford, his partner in the film, and called him by Tennyson, Allison. He describes Ford as “muscular and sluggish person who may, in fact, smart and funny”.

Isaac, who played On Dameron in the seventh episode, read the text on March 13 in the framework of the project “Letters live” in London. 2013 “Letters live” attracted to reading actors, writers, composers and other artists. A project declared as a “living celebration of the written communication”. In recent readings was attended by such actors as Benedict Cumberbatch, Jude law, Chris Evans and others.
