Hollywood entertainer Debbie Reynolds passed away on December 28, a day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died due to a heart attack.
Reynolds was one of Hollywood’s most reliable entertainers for past 60 years and had worked in over 80 movies, TV series and Broadway Musicals.
Debbie, who was 84, died after suffering a suspected stroke, a news confirmed by her son Todd who said that “She wanted to be with Carrie” and had said it just hours before her death.
Carrie was Raynolds daughter with first husband singer Eddie Fisher and had died on December 26 after suffering a heart attack on December 23 while she was on a plane in LA.
Just like Carrie, Debbie too had won millions of hearts with her performance and on-screen presence.
Reynolds had initially tap-danced her way into movies and won hearts of the audiences with her performance in the movie “Singin’ in the Rain.”
Following that, she had many more memorable performances, including few with daughter Carrie.
She was nominated for an Academy Award in 1966 for her performance in the movie “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” and even earned a Tony nomination for her 1973 Broadway debut in “Irene”.
Reynolds and Carrie had an openly complicated relationship especially due to Carrie struggle with her mental illness.
But despite the turbulent relation, they both found a way to reconcile and appreciate each other’s strength.
In 2015 Carrie even presented her mother with the Screen Actors Guild’s Lifetime Achievement Award and hailed her as a performer whose talents were limitless.
