With the sudden passing of Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher yesterday, many fans are remembering the best moments from her career, whether it was her appearance in a 30 Rock episode or her work away from acting, when she hosted a one-woman show called Wishful Drinking.
But as for Dishonored creative director Harvey Smith, he had a different way of remembering, noting on his Twitter, “It’s a little thing, but Carrie Fisher was gracious, funny and creatively open when we worked with her for a small role in #Dishonored. RIP.”
That’s right, according to Glixel, Fisher put in a small cameo in the first-person adventure game, in one of those “blink and you’ll miss it” sort of moments. You’ll hear her after you off the male propaganda officer in Dunwall Tower, during the mission Return To the Tower.
But if you didn’t make that decision, she also provided a quick voiceover for the game, which can be heard over a loudspeaker, when she explains that people should not “interfere with the regular transfer of deceased persons to disposal centers in the Flooded District” or that “any disturbance in the region of Dunwall Tower this evening has been the result of a previously scheduled training exercise.” You can catch a quick video of this performance below.
Fisher didn’t have too much involvement in video games outside of that, though you can play as Princess Leia in EA’s Star Wars: Battlefront, as one of the Heroes that becomes available. In addition, players recently paid her tribute in Star Wars: The Old Republic by visiting an Organa temple, even though the game takes place thousands of years outside of the cinematic timeline.
It’s just a neat little thing to unearth, and Fisher sounds right at home in the Dishonored universe. We only wish she had done more with the series.
And rest in peace, Carrie.
