Plasterboard fixings

I have a new mirror that is to be fixed to plasterboard wall.
Unfortunately mirror has 2 pre-set fixing hooks, and I can't add any more, and as per the usual, none of these correspond with timber studs behind plasterboard lining.
Mirror weight 13kg (1 stone), with 2 fixings.

question is does a Redidrive fixing (metal screw in fixing and screw) hold 1/2 a stone ???....i.e 2 fixings hold the mirror??

any info on bearing capacity of plasterboard ??

13 KG is 2.05 Stone or 28.66 pounds, are you sure it is that heavy?
