Almost 40 years ago, Carrie Fisher hit theaters as Princess Leia in the original Star Wars films—so it’s only appropriate the actress had her co-stars on hand to help her celebrate turning 58 on the eve of her birthday!
Carrie was joined by the cast and crew of the franchise’s newest installment, Star Wars: Episode VII, for dinner at Zuma restaurant in London on the evening of Monday, Oct. 20.
Her co-star Harrison Ford reportedly joined in on the special birthday celebration and actor Adrien Brody, director JJ Arbams and British film stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were also in attendance.
It was confirmed Carrie had officially signed on to star in the new Star Wars movie last April. She is appearing alongside other original trilogy cast members Harrison (Han Solo), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Kenny Baker (R2-D2).
The actress has been living and working on the film—which picks up the storyline 30 years after The Return of the Jedi—in London for the past six months. Filming for the movie’s December 2015 release date is reportedly expected to wrap in the next few weeks.
“I’d like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again—but with white hair,” Carrie said of her role earlier this year. “I think that would be funny.”
