Billie Lourd, Carrie Fisher’s daughter is in Star Wars: The Force Awakens – with Princess Leia’s Hairdo!

People Magazine have just released the first look at Billie Lourd’s character in The Force Awakens. Billie Lourd has said she’s not playing Princess Leia’s daughter in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, even though she’s the real-life daughter of Carrie Fisher, but as these first look images of  her top-secret character reveals, she has at least inherited Leia’s hairdo, also we see the first images of PZ4CO, nicknamed “Peazy,” a protocol droid for the Resistance.

Lourd revealed in People magazine she had an obsession with the original movie when she was growing up.  “I made [my mom] watch it at least once a week – and on special occasions I would make her get in a lightsaber fight with me, Let’s just say the more trained Jedi usually won.”

Billie is a costars on the Fox TV show Scream Queens, and says her mom’s portrayal of Leia has long been an inspiration for her.

“When I saw the [original] movie for the first time, I noticed my mom was not only equally as confident and strong as the men, she was one of the most confident characters in the entire film,” Lourd says. “It made me realize women are just as powerful as men and that we can truly do anything they can – if not more!”

…A proud daughter, and I bet her Mum is also!!
