Star of stage and screen, and one of the last stars of the golden age of Hollywood, Debbie Reynolds, has passed away.
This sad and tragic news comes just 24 hours after the death of Reynolds' iconic daughter, Carrie Fisher. Reynolds died from a stroke at the age of 84. In a statement from Reynold's son, Todd Fisher, he announced:
"She's now with Carrie and we're all heartbroken. She said 'I want to be with Carrie', and then she was gone"
Soaring to stardom after 1952's Singin' in the Rain, Reynold's soon found herself being nominated for awards for her work in The Unsinkable Molly Brown, Mother and Bundle of Joy.
Reynolds also found herself finding great success on the small screen with an award nominated appearance as Bobbie Adler on the NBC sitcom Will & Grace.
In 2015, Debbie Reynolds was honoured with the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Academy Award.
My thoughts are with Debbie's Son Todd Fisher, and her Granddaughter, Billie Lourd.
RIP Debbie Reynolds.
