Billie Lourd Shoots Down Yet Another Rumor About her Character from The Force Awakens

billie-lourdThe 22-year-old daughter of Carrie Fisher, in her first-ever editorial feature, spoke with Interview magazine, and debunked yet another rumor about her character from The Force Awakens…


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.



From TheWrap:


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.

    Sure is cute!

    • June 8, 2015 at 2:36 pm

      As beautiful as her mother!

      • June 8, 2015 at 4:11 pm

        hope she ages better

      • June 8, 2015 at 4:50 pm

        but no awfull plastic surgery (yet)

      • June 8, 2015 at 6:51 pm

        And grandmother.

  • June 8, 2015 at 2:34 pm

    Quite possibly, her “part” is little more than a cameo, as a favor from the director to Mom.

  • June 8, 2015 at 2:45 pm

    What a surprise!

    Of course she can’t have any lead role, because she has no experience.

    • June 8, 2015 at 10:28 pm

      As opposed to Daisy Ridley’s vast screen credits. My favorite role was “Stage Hand.” What a performance!

      And Carrie Fisher only had one credit (small part in Shampoo) before Star Wars.

  • June 8, 2015 at 2:47 pm

    Her part will no doubt be quite small. Perhaps no more than a simple cameo appearance or maybe someone who only has 2 – 3 lines, similar to Kiera Knightley’s role in The Phantom Menace.

  • June 8, 2015 at 3:04 pm

    the “lack of character” she refers to is having her head digitally removed and replaced with her mother’s while she wields the laser sword.

    • June 8, 2015 at 3:35 pm

      I’m pretty sure she’s just coasting on the taste of fame, and when it’s all said and done no one will even notice her tiny cameo without having it pointed out.

      • June 8, 2015 at 5:32 pm

        You’re so cruel! But maybe she’ll surprise you and turn out to be another Keira Knightly.

  • June 8, 2015 at 4:49 pm

    She might be the new Hut slave girl =P
    Abrams to Fisher: “Lucas sends his regards.”

      Passing down the family bikini

      • June 9, 2015 at 5:40 am

        why do OT fans hate on midichlorians but prise the Leia bikini as if it was the greatest thing since sliced bread?

        • June 9, 2015 at 8:25 am

          Because one crushed dreams while the other fulfilled them.

  • June 8, 2015 at 4:51 pm

    Yea news has been really slow. Next month at SDCC should be better

  • June 8, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    She is wearing a costume in a flashback on Tattoine.

  • June 8, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    Yeah, she’s playing a small part in the movie, she’s related to Carrie Fisher. EVERYBODY PANIC!

  • June 8, 2015 at 5:16 pm

    There is no way she is playing the daughter of Princess Leia, she looks nothing like Carrie Fischer…….

  • June 8, 2015 at 5:20 pm

    may be only a voice work for BB8 or other Droid

  • June 8, 2015 at 5:26 pm

    Poker Face ???? She may be bluffing.

    • June 8, 2015 at 6:57 pm

      Poker face? yeah definitely

  • June 8, 2015 at 6:08 pm

    rebel officer?

  • June 8, 2015 at 6:46 pm

    I think “lack of character” implies she will be a character red 7 or Biggs. Someone with a name and character but not much in the way of screen time or gravitas.

    • June 8, 2015 at 7:07 pm

      She’s more action figure now than character. Plastic and “Made in China”.

  • June 8, 2015 at 8:00 pm

    Maybe she’s the Queen of Naboo. Like her grandmother before her.
    Wait… what?

  • June 8, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Well i hope she has a costume…

  • June 9, 2015 at 1:30 am

    I think the Episode 7 Starwars Campaign starting to wear abit thin now already. A teaser 3 needs to come out again soon or some quality news on Rouge One or summit.

  • June 9, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Quite an unbecoming photo. She looks like someone police would find hiding in a closet during a crack house raid.

  • June 9, 2015 at 4:59 am

    She’s pretty. But wow does she look unamused!
    She needs to work on that.

  • June 9, 2015 at 9:44 am

    maybe not princess leias daughter. but maybe queen leias.

    • June 11, 2015 at 2:33 am

      So she’s using the “Exact Words” trick to stave off rumors, I’m guessing…Nice. Of course for all we know, Han and Leia might have split up in the 30 years between VI and VII, thus no children!

  • June 9, 2015 at 10:36 am

    Yeah yeah, and Benedict Cumberbatch claimed he wasn’t playing Khan.
