On-Set Improv is Often Awesome

Sometimes actors just bring it, even off the top of their heads. Of course, the video missed one of the all-time greats:


In The Empire Strikes Back, right before being lowered into the carbonite freezing chamber, Princess Leia tells Han Solo says “I love you.” He replies “I know.” One of the most touching scenes in the entire Star Wars trilogy, and the line was totally ad-libbed by Harrison Ford.

  1. No Raiders of the Lost Ark? The scene where Indy rolls his eyes and shoots the swordsman in the head is completely improved.
