Debbie Reynolds, known for her roles in all-time classic films including Singin’ in the Rain has passed away today at the age of 84 – just one day after the passing of her daughter, Carrie Fisher.
Debbie Reynolds was with her son Todd Fisher at his Beverly Hills home earlier today, discussing funeral plans for Carrie Fisher when she was suddenly rushed to the hospital, due to a possible stroke. Reynolds passed away at the hospital today, confirmed by her son, who told TMZ,
“She’s with Carrie.”

She also received a Tony nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Musical for her role in Irene.
A documentary, titled Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, and will also premiere on HBO on March 2017.
Debbie Reynolds is survived by her son Todd Fisher and her granddaughter, Billie Lourd. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends today during this heartbreaking time.
