The sad news of the death of Carrie Fisher can’t be really mitigated by anything this soon after, but fans can take some small comfort in the fact that she has completed work yet to be seen. As was widely reported, Fisher had completed her scenes for the upcoming Star Wars sequel, which will be released next year. Now Variety reports that Family Guys fans can enjoy Fisher’s voice work in two new episodes:
Carrie Fisher, who died Tuesday, is set to appear in two forthcoming episodes of Fox’s animated comedy “Family Guy.” Variety confirmed that Fisher completed voice-acting work for the two episodes, which will premiere on dates yet to be determined.
Fisher first guest starred on the animated comedy as Angela, supervisor to Seth MacFarlane’s Peter Griffin at the brewery where he works, in 2005. She voiced the character in 20 episodes that have aired, most recently last season in an episode that premiered Jan. 3.
Fisher died Tuesday morning, four days after suffering what was described as a massive heart attack on a flight from London to Los Angeles. She had been in the U.K. shooting an episode of Amazon and Channel 4’s comedy series “Catastrophe,” on which she has a recurring role. She was 60 years old.
Fisher was restlessly creative, performing in a variety of media. She could have easily allowed herself to be trapped by the iconic role that made her famous, but she wanted to branch out, especially to chronicle her many struggles. She went beyond that to process the dark side of fame that she had known intimately since she was a child.
Now let’s cross our fingers that 2016 is done with all of this.
