Billy Dee Williams’ Slap That Never Was? Team | November 20, 2007

Lightsabre fan site interviews actor Billy Dee Williams about his role as Han Solo’s backstabbing (then redeeming) pal Lando Calrissian.


When I wrote down the questions for this I was reading the making of and there’s a page in there where you were rehearsing a scene with Carrie Fisher.

And you said ‘You’re supposed to telegraph it!’ and she replied ‘What’s telegraphed?’
Where did you read this?

It was in Alan Arnold’s making of book (Once upon a Galaxy).
Amazing what people make up.

Was that was made up? I’ve always loved that story.
If that happened, I swear to God I don’t remember it.
