Debby Ryan Responds to Mourning Fans Mistaking Her for Debbie Reynolds

The 'Jessie' alum expresses gratitude for her fans' concern, but makes it clear to them in a tweet that she's still very much alive.

AceShowbiz - Debby Ryan is alive and well, you guys! The Disney princess herself assured everyone that she's perfectly okay after some of her fans learned of Debbie Reynolds' death and confused the young actress for the late legend.

"Omg I can't believe that 2016 took away Debby Ryan too. Rip girl, I will always be Jessie's #1 fan," a fan wrote on Twitter alongside a poster for the 23-year-old beauty's hit show "Jessie". "Wow can't believe Debby Ryan died #rip," another said.

In response to the mix-up, Ryan took to Twitter Thursday, December 29 to express gratitude for her fans' concern, but then make it clear for them that she's not dead. "No... guys, that's very thoughtful but it's Reynolds. Debbie Reynolds...," so she wrote.

Reynolds passed away on Wednesday, December 28 shortly after she was rushed to the hospital for possible stroke. Her death came just a day after her daughter Carrie Fisher's. The "Star Wars" actress died on Tuesday after suffering a massive heart attack during a flight from London to Los Angeles last weekend.
