Learn about Billie Lourd, daughter of the iconic Carrie Fisher, who followed in her mother’s footsteps and made a name for herself in Hollywood.

Billie Lourd (Carrie Fisher’s offspring)

Carrie Fisher was a force to be reckoned with in the 70s acting scene, bringing to life the iconic characters of the Star Wars franchise. Her portrayal of Princess Leia has stood the test of time and remains one of the most recognizable figures in pop culture.

When she passed away on December 27, 2016, her family, friends, and fans worldwide were left reeling. Her only child, Billie Catherine Lourd, was left to carry on her legacy.

Thanks to her mother’s fame, Billie Lourd was exposed to the glitz and glamour of Hollywood from a young age. She developed a passion for acting and made her debut as Lieutenant Connix in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She continued to play the same character in the subsequent films of the franchise. In Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, she even paid homage to her mother by portraying a young Princess Leia with the help of CGI. She also gained recognition for her role as Chanel #3 in the hit TV series Scream Queens.

Billie Lourd has since appeared in various films and TV shows, including American Horror Story and Booksmart, for which she won the Best Supporting Actress Award from the Los Angeles Online Film Critics Society.

It’s clear that the force is strong with this one.

✨💞✨Sending my love to anyone who has lost a mother and anyone who might just be having a complicated Mother’s Day this year. This is my 4th Mother’s Day without my Momby and days like today are never easy, but I’ve found that doing things that make me feel more connected to her make it a little easier – watching her favorite movies, listening to music we listened to together, looking through old pictures and my personal favorite – eating + drinking things she loved. (Today I’m going to watch Postcards from The Edge, listen to Tom Petty + Dire Straits, have a fried mozzarella from La Scala and have a couple Coca-Colas with an aggressive amount of ice). Happy Mother’s Day, but Mother’s Day can be more than just one adjective, so sad Mother’s Day / weird Mother’s Day / funny Mother’s Day / angry Mother’s Day / or any combination of the above. ❤️
