Filmmaker walks off Today Extra set midway through interview with host David Campbell: ‘There she goes!’

Gracie Otto ended her Today Extra interview in the most unique way possible – by walking off set while on-air.

The filmmaker appeared on the morning program to talk about her latest movie and Stan Original Documentary Revealed: Otto By Otto.

But as the interview drew to a close, the 37-year-old abruptly stood up from the couch and walked out of the studio.

Co-hosts David Campbell and Belinda Russell looked confused, until David joked: ‘You can go.’

‘If you wanna do a walk off, walk off. Make an exit! There she goes,’ he added as Gracie waved goodbye and strolled off set.

It comes after Gracie, who has been documenting her father Barry Otto’s life since his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, revealed his disease has gotten worse to the point he no longer recognises her.

‘I was asking him a lot of things – and then it got to be a huge rush to ask him while he was still alive. And he is still alive, but barely,’ she told Stellar Magazine.

‘He has moments of absolute clarity that happen very rarely and are usually about someone or something from the past… it’s like he’s trying to remember who he is, and that’s quite beautiful in a way,’ she continued.

Gracie’s documentary has been described as ‘absorbing’ but not a traditional biopic of her father and Aussie icon Barry.

Rather it is ‘a deeply personal reflection on her relationship with her father shot over five years, in the twilight of his career and as his health deteriorates’.

The film sees Gracie take her father to Brisbane to relive his childhood, his poor upbringing and his first foray into theatre in touching scenes.

The documentary also reveals Barry’s health struggles after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

The family kept Barry’s diagnosis quiet for a while, partly so he could keep working, but he felt that the film might help others dealing with the disease.

Barry has enjoyed an impressive film and theatre career spanning more than 50 years.

Revealed: Otto by Otto premiered at the Sydney Film Festival and will stream in Australia on Stan from June 16.
