Marnie From ‘Halloweentown' Writes Tribute To ‘Grandma' Debbie Reynolds

When it rains, it pours.

On Tuesday morning, the world tragically lost the remarkable Carrie Fisher. Just a day later, her beautiful and talented mother, Debbie Reynolds, died after having a stroke.

“Star Wars” and “Singin' in the Rain” fans came together to mourn the loss of Hollywood's two shining stars.

Celebrities shared heartbreaking tributes online to honor the mother and daughter.

On Wednesday night, Debbie Reynold's “Halloweentown” co-star Kimberly J. Brown shared a touching message on Facebook for her beloved Grandma Aggie.

Debbie Reynolds starred alongside Brown in the Disney Channel four-part series from 1998 to 2006.

Kimberly J. Brown reflected on Debbie's life, career and their time on set together. She wrote,

What do you say about a woman who had such an impact on your life both professionally and personally?

Debbie lived her life like all of us should, to the fullest. She was bold, funny, and had the biggest heart.

Her sparkly smile warmed every room she was in, and her jokes about her amazing career and life would make your stomach hurt with laughter.

She continued,

Making people happy through her performing was her favorite thing to do, and she showed me at a young age what a gift it is to be able to do that for people. She was so talented and wise, which easily could have gone to her head, but instead she went out of her way to help others shine as brightly as they could. She'd try to move huge ladders on set just to help the crew, and looked out for every actor no matter the size their role. Her humility, grace, and care for others inspired me so much as a teen and is something that will always stay with me.

The 32-year-old concluded her message by quoting the movie and thanking Debbie “for the magic.” She said,

‘Being normal is vastly overrated' is a quote from ‘Halloweentown,' and how fitting it is that her character spoke it. Her generosity, talent, and loving spirit made her anything but normal. Thanks for the magic, Debbie. Rest in peace.


You'll always be in our heart, Grandma Aggie. Rest in peace.
