The cast of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

We also spoke to returning star Carrie Fisher, who is back on in the role of Princess Leia in ‘The Force Awakens’, over 30 years after ‘Return Of The Jedi’.

She took the opportunity to call out the sexism which she feels is still prevalent in Hollywood, telling HuffPost UK: “Everything is harder for women because we have to do it twice as well.

"Women have two more fat cells than men, to keep foetuses warm - what about a blanket? We have to overcome these things.

"Then there’s the extra stuff - make-up, and heels... Then you have to run around with a laser. In heels."

Carrie was also photographed on the red carpet - with her French bulldog, Gary in tow, of course - cosying up to some Stormtroopers on her way into the premiere.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is in UK cinemas now.
