Believe it or not, Debbie Reynolds was actually a huge star in kids’ movies.
She became known to the younger generation in 1998, when she starred as Aggie Cromwell in Disney’s “Halloweentown” and continued to reprise her role throughout the series.
“What do you say about a woman who had such an impact on your life both professionally and personally?” Brown wrote in a lengthy Facebook post. “Debbie lived her life like all of us should, to the fullest. She was bold, funny, and had the biggest heart.”’
“‘Being normal is vastly overrated’ is a quote from ‘Halloweentown,’ and how fitting it is that her character spoke it,” the 32-year-old continued. “Her generosity, talent, and loving spirit made her anything but normal. Thanks for the magic, Debbie. Rest in peace.”
On social media, fans from the younger generation also shared touching tributes to Reynolds.
