Actress Carrie Fisher, beloved for her iconic role as Princess Leia, died on Tuesday at the age of 60.
She leaves behind her daughter, Billie Lourd, her brother, Todd Fisher, her mother, Debbie Reynolds — and her French bulldog, Gary.
And when Carrie Fisher visited NPR’s studios in New York City, to talk to Fresh Air host Terry Gross, Gary came along, too.
Gross, however, was in Philadelphia. She didn’t know there was a dog in our studios. She didn’t even know that was allowed.
In the conversation that followed, it’s impossible to miss the buoyant personalities of both Fishers — Carrie and Gary.
