After news broke that iconic actress Debbie Reynolds died on Wednesday, fans of Debby Ryan started posting tributes to the 23-year-old Disney star on Twitter. They mistook Ryan for Reynolds, due to the similarities in their names, and thought the "Jessie" actress had died.


According to Gossip Cop, one person tweeted, "Omg I can't believe that 2016 took away Debby Ryan too. Rip girl, I will always be Jessie's #1 fan," while another wrote, "RIP Debby Ryan ... queen of Disney Channel."


Ryan took to Twitter to clarify the mix-up, telling her followers that their concern was "very thoughtful but it's Reynolds. Debbie Reynolds ..."

Reynolds, 84, died just one day after her daughter Carrie Fisher's death. She was a legend in the industry and will be forever missed, as will Fisher.
