As you probably remember there were two popular rumors on who Billie Lourd will be playing in The Force Awakens. The first one was that she will be playing young Princess Leia in a flashback scene. The young actress debunked this rumor back in May (HERE).
The other rumor was that she will be playing Leia’s daughter in the movie. Now Billie shot down that rumor as well.
Lourd earned a degree from NYU last year, but pursued her secret dream (acting) nonetheless — landing a part in the very franchise that made her mother a star decades ago.
“This is the first job I’ve ever had — right into the fire,” Lourd told Interview of the top-secret “Star Wars” project. While she declined to share details about her character, she was quick to shoot down rumors linking her to Fisher’s iconic Princess Leia, who will also return in the new film.
“I’m not Princess Leia’s daughter,” she said.
It’s nice to finally put those two rumors to rest, especially after they were the most obvious ones.
Considering her words from last month,
“I can’t tell you about my character, or lack of character…”
she most likely will end up having a brief role or one that is wearing a mask and/or a costume.
