We’ve all heard the adage, “nobody’s ever really gone,” but Carrie Fisher seems to be beating the dead horse regarding that point.

After starring in two post-mortem roles as the beloved Leia Organa for The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker, the actress has come back to us once again. This time, in an after-death note.

The note reads:

“I am dead. How are you? I’ll see you soon … I would call and tell you what this is like, but there is no reception up here. Cut. New scene, new setup, new heavenly location. I have finally got the part that I have been rehearsing for all my life. God gave me the part. This is the end of the road I have been touring on all my life.”

It was discovered by her brother, Todd Fisher, when he was going through their mother’s belongings. Debbie Reynolds passed away the day after her daughter Carrie. Todd claims to recognize his sister’s handwriting and declares without a shred of doubt the note is legitimate.

“Either it was something Carrie wrote long ago because she was doing a story on death, or it just materialized from beyond,” he said. “She was writing as if she was dead and what it was like. It just blew my mind. I thought, ‘Wow, why am I finding this right now?'”

Todd has always been open about his sister’s passing in December 2016, and her continued role in the Star Wars franchise. He admitted to being nervous about seeing The Rise of Skywalker because of the “emotional” nature of her story. Let alone all the feelings that come from the heart-breaking tease of seeing his late sister on the screen as if she were still alive.

“I cried,” he admitted. “Carrie is the heart and soul of the storyline.”

But while there is deep emotion, there are no regrets and found solace.

He said:

“A lot of people asked me when they died, ‘How do you deal with it?’ Part of it is the faith that we all shared, my mother, my sister and I — the idea that we shall meet again, and they’re not far from you. They’re just in a different space or a different dimension. There are a lot of words you can attach to [that]. The word ‘force,’ for example, is [‘Star Wars’ creator] George Lucas’s choice word, but you could interchange the word ‘faith.’ I find a lot of that comforting, frankly.”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is in theaters now.
