Carrie Fisher widely remembered for her role as Princess Leia in the movie Star Wars passed away on 27 December at the age of 60. While people across the world mourns her demise, it was this one tiny mortal that caught people’s attention in the recent years. Her French bulldog, Gary. Starting from White House dinner to book signing events, Gary was seen accompanying Carrie in most of the events that she attended.
Gary followed her not only to formal events but also a number of interviews. Even though her last interview before she passed away was with Good Morning America, this particular interview with Stephen Colbert, on the Late Show stole our hearts. And yes, Gary accompanied her there too.
In the video, it is adorable how Gary runs into the studio following her mommy Carrie with his drooping tongue and tiny body. That’s not it. He waits for Carrie to show him the chair he should sit on. Just after Gary take his seat, he starts licking Carrie’s hand unstoppably. Colbert even asked Carrie if she had dipped her fingers in steak sauce. To which, Carrie jokingly responded saying, “I am not going to tell you what I did with my hand.”
