It’s been more than a month since Carrie Fisher was laid to rest, but has learned that the Star Wars actress had secretly predicted she would be dead by February 2017.

According to a new interview in the Sunday Times Culture magazine, singer-songwriter James Blunt revealed new details about his last days with the late star. The 42-year-old, who had named Fisher as his one-year-old son’s godmother, was staying with her in Los Angeles at the time to work on his album, Back To Bedlam.

“She put a cardboard cutout of herself as Leia outside my room with her date of birth and date of death on her forehead,” he told the publication, claiming it was around this time of the year. “I remember thinking it was too soon.”

As Radar previously reported, the 60-year-old actress suffered a massive heart attack on a United Airlines Flight from London on Dec. 2, and was rushed to the hospital in LA upon landing, where she died four days later.

Her death certificate was released by the Los Angeles County Department of Health and her cause of death was listed as “cardiac arrest/deferred,” which means it was likely a heart attack.

Fisher struggled with sobriety for decades, and the results of toxicology tests that could find drugs in her system haven’t been released yet.

Radar readers know that Fisher and her 84-year-old mother, Debbie Reynolds — who died one day apart from Fisher due to a stroke — were laid to rest together on Jan. 6.
