The rest of Star Wars Episode 7's unconfirmed cast might have been maintaining a code of secrecy as if Disney was being run by Vader himself, but Carrie Fisher continues to leak drips of info thick and fast.

The latest, heard second-hand from a co-star, has her shortly heading to London for six months to film on the JJ Abrams sequel.

The development was unearthed on SiriusXM's Opie and Anthony Show, when comedian Jim Jefffries dropped in to discuss the new season of his FXX show Legit, which features a cameo from Fisher.

He told the hosts:

"She’s a funny lady, man. She’ll be smoking cigarettes outside and as soon as she gets inside, she’s straight on to the vapor. She’s had some f*cking hard partying in her life, I tell ya….She said to me, she goes ‘I’m going off to London for six months to film the new Star Wars movie,’ right? And I don’t think from looking at it, the new Star Wars movie is a direct continuation. It’s number 7 but it’s not going to be the next day, I’ll tell you that much. Maybe she had the same problem the Emperor had, I don’t know."

Fisher previously confirmed the return of her Star Wars co-stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Harrison Ford (Han Solo) with it increasingly looking like the film will revolve around the original trio rather than their children as was previously suggested.

Star Wars Episode 7 has been given a release date of 18 December, 2015.
