Will & Grace fans in floods of tears as Billie Lourd makes guest appearance as late Debbie Reynolds’ granddaughter – The Sun

WILL & Grace aired one of its most emotional episodes to date as Billie Lourd made a guest appearance of extremely personal proportions.

He captioned the tweet: “We miss you, Debbie,” a message that clearly resonated with audiences all over the world.

“Billie doing her Debbie impression, can you hear me sobbing?!” a third asked.

While fourth exclaimed: “CRYING AND DYING! Billie Lourd doing a Debbie Reynolds impression and Debra Messing trying not to cry.”
