Just one day after daughter Carrie Fisher passed away, actress Debbie Reynolds has died at the age of 84.
Reynolds was rushed to the hospital after reportedly suffering a stroke while making funeral preparations for her daughter.
Born on April 1, 1932, Reynolds was best known for her roles in several films, including How the West Was Won, Singin’ in the Rain, and The Singing Nun. Her performance as Molly Brown in the 1964 film The Unsinkable Molly Brown earned her a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Actress.
Reynolds was also an accomplished singer, having appeared in several notable Broadway productions.
She was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Musical for her part in Irene, in 1973.
While she was a well-loved and respected entertainer, her personal life also made headlines. She was married three times, the first time to Eddie Fisher in 1955. Their marriage ended in 1959 after Fisher had an affair with Reynolds’ good friend, Elizabeth Taylor.
In her later years, Reynolds continued performing, often collaborating with her daughter Carrie.
She leaves behind son Todd Fisher and granddaughter Billie Lourd, as well many fans and followers.
