US actress Debbie Reynolds has died, a day after the death of her daughter Carrie Fisher, her son announced.

US media say the 84-year-old had a stroke. She was taken to a Los Angeles hospital on Wednesday.

The Hollywood legend is best known for her role in the 1952 musical Singin’ in the Rain, opposite Gene Kelly.

Fisher – renowned for her role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars series – died on Tuesday aged 60, following a cardiac arrest on a plane.

Reynolds had been taken by ambulance to Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre after falling ill.

Announcing her death, her son Todd Fisher told AP news agency: “She’s now with Carrie and we’re all heartbroken.”

The stress of his sister’s death, he added, had been “too much” for their mother.

Celebrity news site TMZ reports that Reynolds cracked while discussing plans for Carrie’s funeral with her son, telling him: “I miss her so much; I want to be with Carrie”.
