In light of Carrie Fisher’s death, her screen test for 1977’s “Star Wars” (later re-titled “Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope”) has resurfaced as fans pay tribute to the late actress.

The video, originally posted on YouTube in 2006, shows a fresh-faced Fisher auditioning as Princess Leia alongside Harrison Ford’s Hans Solo. Both engage in a scene where Leia describes the Rebellion’s plan to take down the Death Star, which appears halfway through the film.

The tape ends with Fisher stating her name and age as she smiles to the camera.
