LOS ANGELES, Dec. 28 (UPI) — Carrie Fisher had completed work on two episodes of “Family Guy” and “Star Wars: Episode VIII” before her death on Tuesday.
Variety reported Fisher is set to appear on “Family Guy” in her recurring role as Angela, a supervisor to main protagonist Peter Griffen voiced by creator Seth MacFarlane at the brewery where he works.
Fisher first joined the long-running Fox animated series in 2005 and has previously voice Angela across 20 episodes.
MacFarlane offered his condolences on Twitter, writing, “Carrie Fisher was smart, funny, talented, surprising, and always a hell of a fun time to be around. ‘Family Guy’ will miss her immensely.”
Fisher had completed work on “Star Wars: Episode VIII” in her most famous role as Leia Organa. Production on the film wrapped up in July and is in post-production.
Fisher was slated to appear in the next entry, “Star Wars: Episode IX” that begins shooting in 2018, Variety reported.
She will also be seen guest-starring in the third season of British sitcom “Catastrophe” when it airs in the spring.
The iconic film star died at age 60 after going into cardiac arrest on a flight from London to Los Angeles.
“She was loved by the world and will be missed profoundly. Our entire family thanks you for your thoughts and prayers,” family spokesman Simon Halls said in a statement on behalf of Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd.
