Watch Carrie Fisher Ad-Lib in Her Last Role Before She Passed Away

Before Carrie Fisher passed away, she had just finished filming the third season of “Catastrophe” this past December. Recently, a scene of the show was exclusively released in People magazine.

Sharon Horgan, Fisher’s costar and co-creator of the show, reflected on how Fisher would always make everyone laugh, no matter what. In this scene, Fisher ad libbed:

“She and I are together in the sitting room, and she starts talking about a TV show that she’s watching called My Children Are Schizophrenic, and that whole little ramble about the show was off the top of her head. And every time she did it, we’d call cut and the whole place would crack up laughing.” 

For Horgan, Fisher was an inspiration and icon, which sometimes made it hard not to just see her as a normal person:

“We were so shocked to have her in the show that it took us awhile to start seeing her as a human and not as an icon, someone so far removed from our lives and our world. We were just sort of dumbfounded.”

Instead of getting someone else to play Fisher’s character, Horgan also explained how they are going to deal with the character’s death instead:

“Now it’s about honoring her character in the next season. Trying to find a way to deal with it without being morbid and sad. It’s going to be hard to do it justice, but we’re going to try to do it in a way that feels right.”
