Debbie Reynolds 1932 - 2016

Movie News

Following on from the tragic death of Carrie Fisher on Tuesday, it’s been confirmed that Debbie Reynolds has now passed away just a day after her daughter. She was 84 years of age.

The death was confirmed by Debbie’s son, Todd Fisher, who said, “The last thing she said this morning was that she was very, very sad about losing Carrie and that she would like to be with her again. Fifteen minutes later she suffered a severe stroke. The only thing we’re taking solace in is that what she wanted to do was take care of her daughter, which is what she did best.”

Of course, as well as being the mother of Carrie Fisher, Reynolds was a star in her own right, starting her acting career at the age of just 16. She’d become a household name for starring alongside Gene Kelly in the legendary Singin’ in the Rain in 1964, and she’d be nominated for an Oscar for 1964’s The Unsinkable Molly Brown.

She would marry singer Eddie Fisher and have children Carrie and Todd, although that marriage would come to an end due to Fisher’s affair with Elizabeth Taylor. Subsequently, Debbie would marry and divorce twice more.

The thoughts of all here at STARBURST go out to the family, friends and fans of Debbie Reynolds. Rest in peace.
