Remembering Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds


As agreed upon by many people, 2016 was one of the worst years the world has seen in a while. In December, 2016 decided to make its final comeback by taking away two beloved stars within one day of each other.
Debbie Reynolds took the spotlight in the early 1950s when she signed with the Warner Brothers studio. She worked with them for two years until they stopped producing musicals and she switched to MGM. Debbie was well-known for her work in movie musicals, one of the most notable being “Singin’ in the Rain.” Her career lasted from 1948 to 2016 and might have gone on longer if she hadn’t died of intracerebral hemorrhage on December 28th, 2016, one day after her daughter.
During her career, Debbie Reynolds had two children, one of whom went on to follow somewhat in her footsteps: Carrie Fisher. Carrie Fisher was most famous for her role as Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” movies. However, she also had roles in movies like “Shampoo,” “The Blues Brothers,” “Hannah and Her Sisters,” etc. Recently, Fisher starred alongside her mom in a documentary called “Bright Lights” that was about their relationship. She also appeared in the new “Star Wars” trilogy, and her final onscreen performance was in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” which is scheduled for release in December of 2017. Fisher had a long and wonderful career which unfortunately ended when she died of cardiac arrest on December 27, 2016.
Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher were both wonderful actresses and, although they will be missed dearly, they will always be remembered for what they gave to the world.
