Not to mention being simply a far nicer person. ^_^

As for the layout, I wonder if it might look better center-justified - as is, the text block weighs more on the left, as it were - and with a slight gap separating the final line from the rest.

How about this version?

Very much a nicer person. Carrie Fisher in an interview said that she had trouble acting the scenes with him in Star Wars, because she ws supposed to be intimidated of this evil character, and he was so nice "off screen"... and also destroyed Alderaan while wearing carpet slippers :P

HA! Brilliant.

'Course, it means I'll never be able to watch that scene in quite the same way. =:)

Two years after the original Doctor Who TV series premiered, there was a movie called Dr. Who and the Daleks, starring Peter Cushing as "Dr. Who" (even though he's only just called "the Doctor" on the series).
