A group of friends, family and fans paid tribute to mother-daughter actresses Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds at a memorial service here.

The service took place on Saturday at Forest Lawn cemetery, reports

The tribute spanned decades of Hollywood history, with a hip-hop version of Singin' in the rain, collage of candid family photographs, and an appearance by fictional robot character R2D2.

"My mother didn't like funerals and memorials. She liked shows," said Todd Fisher, who organised the tribute to his mother and sister. 

Fans started lining up outside the Hall of Liberty at 7 am on Saturday, seeking to pay their respects one last time. 

Carrie Fisher, best known for her role of Princess Leia in the "Star Wars" franchise, died on December 27, 2016, after suffering a heart attack at the age of 60. 

Reynolds died a day later at the age of 84.
