Debbie Reynolds entertains guest at her pool party in Los Angeles, circa 1955.
Reynold’s death comes one day after the death of her daughter, actress Carrie Fisher, stunned the world following the “Star Wars” actress’ heart attack during a flight over the weekend. Fisher was 60 years old.
Carrie Fisher often spoke of the ups and downs in her relationship with her mother and growing up in the shadow of famous parents.
In 2012, Fisher told the TODAY Show the relationship between the two was “certainly not … typical.”
“But now I have officially turned into my mother. In our family, to turn into one another we do night club acts,” she said, in reference to her one-woman show “Wishful Drinking.”
The two appeared side-by-side in a 2016 documentary called “Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds.” The documentary premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and was set to air on HBO in March 2017.
Reynolds on Tuesday thanked those who “embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter” in a post on Facebook following Fisher’s death, adding, “I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop.”
