Disney Channel Original Movies hold a special place in many people's hearts and the classic movie Halloweentown and it's sequels are no different. So when news broke yesterday that Debbie Reynolds, the iconic actress who played one of the coolest grandmas ever Aggie Cromwell in these movies passed away, hearts instantly broke everywhere. She will be missed by many, including her Halloweentown co-star and on-screen granddaughter Kimberly J. Brown, who took to Facebook to share an adorable photo of the pair on set together, along with a heartfelt message about how much she genuinely enjoyed working alongside and getting to know Debbie.
"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," Kimberly wrote. "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."
How amazing is that? Debbie really left her mark on Kimberly, and the actress went on to say that Debbie was truly a star, in every way possible.
"'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," she added.
Debbie will forever live on through her many movie and TV roles she had during the length of her career. Our thoughts are with her real-life granddaughter, Billie Lourd, as she copes with this terrible loss, just one day after her mom and Debbie's daughter, Carrie Fisher, passed away too.
