I would rather see a more complex character turn to the dark side, Leia would be fine.
Carrie Fisher will not play the villain of a major blockbuster movie.

People underestimate Fisher. She's a good actress and a very smart and witty lady. She'll do anything if she thinks its fun and rewarding on some level, even just as a favour to Lucas.

(I don't see her character going rogue at all, however--not because Fisher would refuse but because IMHO it wouldn't work.)

Carrie Fisher was stoned out of her mind when she did ESB and ROTJ.

Not sure Disney would risk hiring her for the next movies...

She was self-medicating due to being undiagnosed as bi-polar. But anyone who has read her books or seen her TV or stage shows knows that she's not some drug-addled diva, especially since becoming clean.

Seconded. There is a documentary based on her stage show that I have not yet had a chance to see.

Should you be more worried she'd cheat on her boyfriend with the director?

Depends on who the director is.

Yeah, they used the same logic with Robert Downey Jr.

Oh, wait...

But Marvel Studios hired RDJ, not Disney. Marvel still hasn't been bought out by Disney yet.

I never said she hadn't been. But I wonder if her past history will influence if Disney would consider Leia in the sequels.

Not unless any present behavior gives them pause and reminds them of how she misbehaved and abused chemicals in the 80s, and she's clean, sober and upright at the moment with years of straight laced sobriety under her belt.
