Debbie Reynolds , a leading lady in Hollywood musicals and comedies in the ’50s and ’60s, including “Singin’ in the Rain,” passed away at the age of 84 on Wednesday, just one day after the death of her daughter, actress Carrie Fisher.
She was rushed to Cedars-Sinai hospital earlier on Wednesday. “It’s true, she’s with Carrie,” her son, Todd Fisher, told Reuters, adding that shortly before suffering a stroke Debbie said she missed her daughter and wanted to be with her. “She left very shortly after that and those were the last words she spoke.”
Her late daughter Carrie Fisher, who rose to fame as Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” films, died on Tuesday at age 60 after suffering a heart attack last Friday.
