Cary Elwes stoped by YouTube Headquarters for a discussion about his book, "As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of the Princess Bride." 

This first-person account and behind-the-scenes look at the making of the cult classic film is filled with never-before-told stories, exclusive photographs, and interviews with costars Robin Wright, Wallace Shawn, Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest, and Mandy Patinkin, as well as author and screenwriter William Goldman, producer Norman Lear, and director Rob Reiner.

Cary Elwes was inspired to share his memories and give fans an unprecedented look into the creation of the film while participating in the twenty-fifth anniversary cast reunion. In addition to never-before seen photos and interviews with his fellow cast-mates, there are plenty of set secrets, backstage stories, and answers to lingering questions about off-screen romances that have intrigued fans for years.
