    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Debbie Reynolds, the mother of late Carrie Fisher, the American actress who played Princess Leia in the Star Wars movies, has died at the hospital at the age of 84, her son has confirmed.

    "The last thing she said this morning was that she was very, very sad about losing Carrie and that she would like to be with her again. Fifteen minutes later she suffered a severe stroke," Todd Fisher said on Wednesday, as quoted by The Guardian.

    Reynolds died at the hospital on Wednesday afternoon after she was taken there from her son’s home in Beverly Hills.

    Debbie’s daughter, Carrie Fisher, died on Tuesday at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles last week.

    Fisher is the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and late Eddie Fisher, an American entertainer.

    Carrie Fisher is best known for her role in the original Star Wars movie that was released in 1977, and also appeared in the 2015 Star Wars Episode VII (The Force Awakens).
