Actress, Debbie Reynolds, died last night following a suspected stroke. The actress passed away just a day after the death of her daughter, Carrie Fisher.
Reynolds debuted in an uncredited role in the 1948 film, June Bride shot to fame in the Gene Kelly musical, Singin' in the Rain. More recently she played Bobbi Adler in the TV series Will & Grace. She married Eddie Fisher in 1955 and had two children, Carrie and Todd Fisher.
Reynolds was reportedly involved in arranging her daughter's funeral when she was taken ill and rushed to hospital. Todd Fisher said the stress of his sister's death "was too much" for Reynolds. "She said, 'I want to be with Carrie', and then she was gone."
Our thoughts continue to be with the family, especially Billie Lourd, who has now lost both a mother and grandmother in such a short period.
