I'm mourning both Carrie and Debbie. Carrie has inspired me since the age of 4-5, I still can't believe it.
Carrie Fisher hit me hard. She was so young and still so active - she just wrapped Episode VIII filming, and I had just watched her on Graham Norton talking about her new book. Absolutely tragic.
Debbie Reynolds... Talk about dying from a broken heart.
