The script writer for the series “Catastrophe” Sharon Horgan spoke about the last months of Carrie Fisher on the set. The star of the movie “Star wars” has always stood out for his wit and sarcastic jokes, but in recent days it has become more delicate. “She became less cheerful,” writes the writer.
In July 2017 Carrie Fisher was posthumously nominated for an Emmy for a guest appearance in the television series “Catastrophe”, the writer of which was Sharon Hogan. The writer reveals in an interview with last months shooting with the actress.
Death Carrie Fisher has shocked and unsettled everyone who took part in the creation of the series. Horgan told reporters that the actress was “more delicate” for her last season of filming in the fall of 2016, shortly before her death.
“Her brain was constantly bubbling with ideas, each sentence contained a punchline, each variegated Hollywood story had a moral — but I’m not sure that her kindness and generosity did not go unnoticed. She was a nice lady, pleasant and cheerful.” Horgan admits in an interview for “the Hollywood Reporter”. “She gave gifts to the film crew and actors with the notes, where he wrote his wonderful, skillful handwriting. These notes were part of poetry, dirty poetry.”
“She was definitely more sensitive at that time. It seemed, whether she was not as cheerful as always. But nothing gave hints about what she suffered. Maybe our eyes were not sufficiently open in order to see it.” writes Horgan.
The creators of the series first met Fisher at the award ceremony “Attitude Awards”, where the role of Princess Leia was awarded the Graham Norton. She declared it, which was rude, cocky and funny. She is simultaneously fascinated and insulted the audience. Then the creators realized that she was perfect for the role of MIA. “We have already written the script for horrible mother of Rob and my character’s stepmother, MIA, and was in search of an actor who could play her. We saw Carrie on the stage, and I turned to Rob saying “It is MIA. It’s your mother.”
Carrie Fisher died on the 60-m to year of life from sleep apnea. In the coroner’s report stated that the body of Carrie contained cocaine, MDMA and heroin.
In 2008 he published a book “Wishful Drinking”, where Fisher, in her manner, wrote that he would like that her obituary was, “She drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra.” Will listened, and the obituary was written these words.
