Hollywood’s triple tragedy has gripped the world as the two corpses were carried through LA’s famous Hollywood Hills by police.

Trouble began when Carrie Fisher’s brother Todd called 911 after he noticed the mother-daughter duo with Mike Nichols, who directed her in the 1987 movie Working Girl.

Ms Fisher was found dead in her room, with Mr Nichols taken to hospital after he hit his head on a glass mirror in the bathroom.

The pair were led to believe they were alone but who was Mrs Fisher’s assistant when Mike Nichols collapsed?

Mike Nichols

Ms Fisher had worked with Mr Nichols on two other films – 1973’s Echo Park, as a camera assistant, and 1975’s Wishful Drinking, where she played herself.

Her late mother was director of Singin’ in the Rain, and earlier this year was recognised with a Director of the Year award at the 31st annual Directors Guild of America awards.

What role did Ms Fisher play in the film?

It was the actress’ first role in a movie but there was no suggestion that she took on an important part in the production.

The issue came to light when it was revealed that Mike Nichols had checked himself into a hospital for observation only days before he collapsed, instead of having it confirmed as a medical issue.

In the early hours of Tuesday morning, the man who appeared to be Carrie Fisher’s assistant, Brett Johnson, was found dead at his Los Angeles home.

He had not been involved in the production of Working Girl, according to TMZ , and now faces a negligent homicide charge.

Was Carrie Fisher injured during her last appearance in the movie?

It has been speculated that the actress suffered a heart attack on a flight from London to LA on December 23, 2016.

Ms Fisher died two days later of the heart attack.

Mike Nichols suffered from a fractured pelvis and a small stroke, although the actor recovered and was released from hospital.

The director told ABC News he had fallen but did not know Ms Fisher had passed away.

After learning his family were travelling down the hill, Mr Nichols’s manager told the news network that he had first thought the pair were just friends visiting one another.
