Debbie Reynolds, the El Paso-born Hollywood actress known for Singin' in the Rain, Charlotte's Web and other movies, has died. She was 84.
Reynolds was the mother of Star Wars star Carrie Fisher, who died Tuesday following a heart attack last week. Fisher's brother, Todd Fisher, told Variety that "[Reynolds] wanted to be with Carrie."
On Tuesday, Reynolds posted a statement on Facebook that read, "Thank you to everyone who has embraced the gifts and talents of my beloved and amazing daughter. I am grateful for your thoughts and prayers that are now guiding her to her next stop. Love Carrie's Mother."
Wednesday afternoon, sources told the LA Times that paramedics "arrived to [Reynolds'] son's home at about 1 p.m. after Reynolds complained of breathing problems."
TMZ reported that Reynolds was at her son Todd's house to discuss funeral plans for Carrie when the family called 911. They were also the first outlet to report Carrie Fisher's heart attack.
Soon after news of the emergency call broke, Joely Fisher, half-sister to Carrie (but no blood relation to Reynolds) tweeted "God speed mama" with a picture of her and Reynolds together.
Reynolds was born in El Paso in 1932, where she lived until her family moved to California when she was 8.
A Hollywood legend for films like Singin' in the Rain, The Catered Affair and Tammy and the Bachelor, those who grew up in the '90s might recognize her from the hit Disney Channel movie Halloweentown.
She is survived by her son Todd Fisher and her 24-year old granddaughter Billie Lourd, who is also an actress and is the daughter of Carrie Fisher.
