WATCH: 'Bright Lights' Director Says Carrie Fisher Was Caring for 'Ill' Debbie Reynolds During Filming of Documentary

As ET previously reported, Fisher, 60, was cremated earlier this week following her Dec. 27 death, after going into cardiac arrest aboard a Los Angeles-bound flight from London. At this time, Fisher's autopsy report has been placed on a security hold.

Just one day after Fisher's untimely death, her mother, Singing in the Rain actress Debbie Reynolds, also died from a suspected stroke at 84 years old. She will be laid to rest on Friday, according to a source, and some of Fisher's ashes will be buried with her. Also on Friday, Broadway will dim its lights at 7:45 p.m. ET in honor of the actresses.
