Billie Catherine Lourd is an American actress born on July 17, 1992. Still somewhat unknown to the public, her family is much less well known. Billie is none other than the daughter of actress Carrie Fisher, the famous Princess Leia from the Star Wars saga, and the granddaughter of actress Debbie Reynolds, made famous by the film Singing in the Rain.

With such a family of artists, it comes as no surprise that the beauty would turn to a similar career, graduating from the prestigious New York University in 2014. As soon as she graduated, she got her very first contract with a small role in Star Wars VII: The Awakening of the Force. Although at first there were rumours that she would play a youthful version of Princess Leia, the young woman contradicted them.

Surfing on this new notoriety, Billie Lourd joins the Scream Queens team in February 2015, alongside Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis. The series mixing horror and comedy produced by Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story) allowed her to take her first steps on television. She plays Chanel No.3, a rich and disillusioned fraternity student. She often wears earmuffs, a nod to Leia’s famous hairstyle.

On December 27, 2016, her mother, actress Carrie Fisher, dies at the age of 60. The next day, her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, passed away at the age of 84.
