Actress and singer Debbie Reynolds was rushed to the hospital from a home in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, just one day after the death of her daughter, "Star Wars" actress Carrie Fisher.
Reynolds was hospitalized after a call that she was having trouble breathing, two law enforcement sources familiar with the incident told NBC News.
Reynolds, 84, catapulted to fame after her first leading role in 1952 at age 19, playing Kathy Selden in "Singin' in the Rain," starring alongside veterans Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor.
Born April 1, 1932, Reynolds appeared in beauty pageants before she made her film debut in 1950 in the musical "The Daughter of Rosie O'Grady."
The actress starred in the "The Debbie Reynolds Show," a short-lived sitcom on NBC during the late 1960s.
Reynolds then turned her attention to the stage, performing on Broadway and in Las Vegas over the next 20 years.
She continued to appear in films throughout the 1990s. In all, the actress appeared in dozens of films, televisions shows and stage productions and has been nominated for multiple Golden Globes and Academy and Emmy Awards.
