Star Wars Screen Tests

SF Signal found a YouTube user who has been posting Star Wars screen tests:

I stumbled upon this Panopticist post of Robby Benson’s Star Wars audition (he reads for the part of Luke along with a mostly off-camera Harrison Ford). This led me to the YouTube profile of its source, Ghyslain. (Not the Star-Wars-Kid Ghyslain, although that would somehow be poetic, wouldn’t it?) Gyslain has collected a series of Star Wars audition videos.

His notes say there is 90 minutes of footage that features folks like Kurt Russell, William Katt, Fredric Forrest, Andrew Stevens, Charles Martin Smith, Amy Irving, and several others. So far you can see: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Lisa Eilbacher (from Beverly Hills Cop reading for Princess Leia). Here’s another one with someone reading for Leia I don’t recognize and does not identify herself in the video.

You can find the Youtube user’s page here where he will be posting other ones in the future (I can’t wait to see Kurt Russell’s audition tape). Here are some of the clips he has up at the moment.

Lisa Eilbacher (who can’t seem to memorize the lines. Although the writing is so bad that I can’t really blame her) auditioning for the Princess Leia role.
