Horgan remembered Fisher, who died at 60 on Tuesday, by sharing a recent photo of the two smiling widely on the Catastrophe set.
“Carrie was my friend. It took me three series but I got her in the end. She was the most generous, fun, gifted, smart, kind, funny funny funny person I've ever met,” Horgan wrote on Instagram. “She certainly wasn't ready to go.”
Fisher had shared the same photo days earlier on Dec. 19, writing on Twitter in her own unique voice: “Sharon Horgan & I pretending we like each other while filming Catastrophe in London.....Succeeding!”
One day later on Dec. 20, Fisher snapped a photo with a fan on the streets of London outside the Salvador Dali Museum looking healthy and happy.
Alongside photos of Fisher sightseeing that same day, Fisher -- who was reportedly promoting her book, The Princess Diarist -- joked about her cameo in Rogue One: “Gary heard I do some of my best work in it.”

Fisher’s last tweet on Dec. 21 was a photo outside of the Charles Dickens Lounge.
Earlier this year, ET spoke with Horgan about the chances of moving Catastrophe from its U.K. setting to the U.S., as well as Fisher’s pivotal role on the show.
"We’re very in love with Carrie Fisher, so we always try and think of how we can get her in it more. So, obviously, heading back to Rob's hometown would give us more time with her,” Horgan told ET back in August. “And so it is a little bit of, it's something we can confer for a lot of reasons. But, you know, hopefully at some point it'll happen."
