If this is really true, then it cuts both ways, and directly undermines your statements about Carrie Fisher. Self-contradiction - good luck with that. Tell that to Dame Judi Dench, Helen Mirren, and a host of other actresses, or Christopher Lee for a male counterpart. Star Wars doesn't seem to be a franchise that has considered age and attractiveness to be a large factor. What I see for Episode 7 isn't a young/old, either/or situation. Rather, what I envision is a both/and, in which the older cast and a younger are blended for a single film and the cast looks a bit more like the recent Dallas reboot on TNT.
