Hollywood is certainly feeling the loss of Debbie Reynolds.
On Wednesday, Kimberly J. Brown joined the long list of Miz Reynolds’ former costars who’ve paid tribute to the icon on social media. So sad.
Obviously, Debbie had a large impact on Brown’s life as she was just a teen when she filmed the first Halloweentown movie with Reynolds.
“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.”
Awww. 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.”
Beautifully said. Kimberly isn’t the only Halloweentown alum to pay tribute to the deceased legend as Judith Hoag took to Twitter and posted:

And while the Halloweentown franchise has become a staple during the Fall season, Debbie is also known for her iconic roles in Singin’ In The Rain, The Unsinkable Molly Brown, The Singing Nun, and many more.
We think Brown said it best when she concluded:
“‘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.”
