I'm sure you were, as I was, stunned to learn the passing of both of these actresses so suddenly these passed few days. First, Actress Carrie Fisher, from a heart attack on December 27, 2016, and then her mother, Actress Debbie Reynolds from a stroke a day later, December 28, 2016. So tragic, especially for all of the dear family and friends they left behind.

Both Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher were legends in the acting world. Debbie Reynolds was from Hollywood's By-gone Golden Era... with hits like "Singing in the Rain," "The Affairs of Dobie Gillis," "Susan Slept Here," "The Tender Trap," "Tammy and the Bachelor," "The Unsinkable Molly Brown," and so much more! You can see Debbie Reynolds' extensive acting career at imdb - with over 80 acting credits in her filmography and over 200 performances as herself!

Of course, Carrie Fisher will forever be remembered as the iconic character from the original Star Wars movies, as Princess Leia. You can see her filmography at imdb, with over 90 acting credits!

It is so sad to see these two pass away - Daughter and Mother, so close to one another.
Debbie was such a wonderful actress and beautiful singer. Her song "Tammy" and "Singin' in the Rain" are both musical favorites! Each year when Debbie's birthday comes along in April, you may recall, I have often wished her a Happy Birthday here on my site and shared news on TCM's movie marathon for her. I'm sure TCM will have a memoriam movie tribute for her soon, as they have already shared this touching video tribute below.
With my prayers and sympathy to all of their family and friends...
To the brilliant actress whose golden life made our lives golden in return. Debbie Reynolds, we miss you dearly. #TCMRemembers pic.twitter.com/6pufT0V6VO— TCM (@tcm) December 29, 2016
