Acting Legend Debbie Reynolds Has Died

Just a day after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher, Oscar nominated singing and acting legend Debbie Reynolds has also passed away at the age of 84. Reynolds suffered a stroke earlier today, and died at Cedars-Sinai hospital.

“She wanted to be with Carrie,” her son Todd Fisher told Variety.

One of the principal MGM stars throughout the 50s and 60s, Reynolds would appear in such classic films as The Unsinkable Molly Brown and Singin' In The Rain. In more recent years, the actress would have roles in such projects as The Rat Race, How The West Was Won, The Bodyguard and The Catered Affair.

She also lent her voice to roles in the original Charlotte’s Web and Kiki's Delivery Service.

She was even nominated for an Emmy thanks to her recurring role on Will and Grace.

The actress, who was often seen as the epitome of the ‘pert and sassy girl’, was also a great philanthropist. She aided in preserving Hollywood heritage and spent over six decades working the Thalians group on mental health issues.

In January 2015, Reynolds would receive the SAG lifetime achievement award.

Rest In Peace, Debbie, you were truly one of the greats!
