"The two of them have the sweetest most loving relationship," Feifer tells "Extra." "They watched over each other and took care of each other and we were all shocked at how connected they were."

Feifer says he met Murphy the first day on-set. Murphy was in her trailer and "she gave me the warmest sweetest hug," Feifer remembers. He adds, "She glowed all the time."

Feifer admits he was "shocked" and "saddened" by the star's death but he really enjoyed working with Murphy, "I had a really sweet relationship with her." He says she was giving, prepared and she made friends with everybody. He continues, "She was always on the ball."
