Singer James Blunt says Carrie Fisher ‘predicted her death’ on a cutout of her Star Wars character Princess Leia.
The 42-year-old opened up in an interview and recollected about seeing Carrie’s date of birth and predicted death date written on a cutout of Princess Leia around the house while living together.
The Love Me Better singer said: ‘She put a cardboard cutout of herself as Leia outside my room, with her date of birth and date of death on her forehead.’
‘I’m trying to remember what the date was, because it was around now – and I remember thinking it was too soon. She went out with a bang, as she was back in movies. Maybe it was a great time to go.’
Talking about his close relationship with the late actress, he also revealed that his first album Back To Bedlam was inspired by her as they lived together ‘in a madhouse’ at the time in LA.
Paying tribute to the Star Wars legend and godmother of his son, he confessed that the worst thing about Carrie’s death was his son would never get to know her.
He added: ‘The saddest thing is that my son will never get to know someone I thought was the most special person. Fisher was my American mother, and a real inspiration.’
Carrie tragically died after having a cardiac arrest at the age of 60, two days after Christmas on Dec 27 2016. Tweeting on the day she died, Blunt wrote: ‘Sweet dreams, darling @carriefisher. I’m gonna miss you. So much. x’
