Speaking to Express.co.uk and other press Gervais also admitted the scene where Lisa was reading the poem never failed to make him cry.
He said: “There’s one scene I’ve watched 70 times and it still absolutely chokes me up, it’s when Lisa reads the poem in episode six honestly, I gag.
“It’s such an amazing poem, it’s such an amazing performance and what’s happening while it’s happening.
“Honestly, that poem, I’ve loved it for years. I’ve always wanted to use it, it’s devastating,” he concluded.
After Life seasons 1-3 are available to stream on Netflix.
