‘Halloweentown’ Star Debbie Reynolds Has Died

Hollywood legend and star of the Halloweentown movies Debbie Reynolds has died following a stroke on Wednesday, Dec. 28, just one day after the tragic loss of her daughter, Carrie Fisher (Star Wars, The ‘Burbs).

Reynolds broke out with her role as Kathy Selden in Singin’ In The Rain and she was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award for The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964), but to younger audiences, she will always be lovingly remembered as Grandma Aggie Cromwell in the 1998 Disney Channel original movie Halloweentown.

She returned to the witchy role in three sequels – Halloweentown II: Kalabar’s Revenge (2001), Halloweentown High (2004), and Return to Halloweentown (2006) – and she opened the gate to Halloween for a generation of kids.

Debbie Reynolds was 84.
