Cicely Tyson's Final Interview, Filmed Hours Before Her Death, Airs on 'Live With Kelly & Ryan'

Cicely Tyson‘s final interview has aired.

The legendary Hollywood star, who sadly passed away on Thursday (January 28), was a guest on Live With Kelly & Ryan, which was pre-taped on Wednesday (January 27), just a day before her death at the age of 96.

Prior to the interview’s airing, a brief clip was shared on social media.

In the clip, Cicely confirmed that a stranger predicted she would have an extraordinary life when she was just a baby.

“This woman stopped [my mother] and started playing with me, and turned to my mother and said: ‘Take care of this child. She has a sixth sense. She’s going to make you very proud one day,’” she explained. She also reflected on how she landed the role that won her an Oscar nomination, Rebecca in the 1972 film Sounder.

Cicely‘s memoir Just As I Am was released this week.
