Cape Town – Carrie Fisher's brother recently came across an old letter written to him by his sister when he found himself looking through his mother, Debbie Reynold's, desk drawers.

"Everything Debbie cared the most about, in terms of personal letters, was in there (desk) and I've been through that drawer, several times," Todd Fisher said, according to People Magazine.

The 61-year-old director said he found a page ripped from a book by writer Adrian Tinniswood and had his sister's handwriting on it. He said of the note the Star Wars actress who died in 2016 wrote, "Either it was something Carrie wrote long ago, because she was doing a story on death, or it just materialised from beyond."

Ironically, he said, "She was writing as if she was dead and what it was like: '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'.

"Then it says, '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'."

He added, "It just blew my mind. I thought, 'Wow, why am I finding this right now?'"
