Billie Lourd was born on July 17, 1992 in Los Angeles, California, USA as Billie Catherine Lourd. She is an actress, known for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) and Booksmart (2019).

Trivia (13)

Daughter of Bryan Lourd and Carrie Fisher.
Granddaughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher.
She is the niece of actor & producer Todd Fisher.
Billie graduated from New York University in 2014 after studying religion and psychology.
She bears a striking resemblance to her mother Carrie Fisher.
For her role as Chanel #3 in Scream Queens (2015), she's constantly wearing earmuffs in every episode. This is a nod to the famous bun hairstyle her mother, Carrie Fisher, wore in Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977).
Niece-in-law of Catherine Hickland.
Billie had already filmed her debut role in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) before she was cast as a regular in Scream Queens (2015). But because the film had a much longer pre-production period than the Fox TV series, all 13 episodes of Scream Queens' first season had been broadcast by the time Episode VII premiered in theaters.
Her maternal grandfather was the son of Russian Jewish parents. The rest of Billie's ancestry is English, Scottish, Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, Welsh, German, and distant French.
She lost her mother, Carrie Fisher, and her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, within one day of each other. Her mother died of a heart attack, while her grandmother suffered a fatal stroke the following day.
Fictionalized as "Honey" in her mother's novel The Best Awful, the sequel to Postcards From the Edge. The Best Awful is based on her parents' break-up after her father came out as gay.
Mark Hamill affectionately refers to her as his "Space Niece".
Stepdaughter of Bruce Bozzi, the co-owner of the steakhouse chain The Palm.

Personal Quotes (13)

Boys told me they masturbated to pictures of my mom in Star Wars, and I'd run home crying. My mom would say, 'You know what you do? Turn around and say, "Me too." ' That's when I realized that my childhood wasn't 100 percent normal.
I am not a big horror freak. I'm a bit of a scaredy-cat in general. I can't handle scary movies unless I am at home with the lights on and the doors locked or it is in the morning.
My mom made me watch 'Star Wars' for the first time when I was about 7 years old. When I was younger, I hated action movies and pretty much anything loud. So when she put it on, I covered my ears and ran out of the room.
She raised me to not think of men and women as different. She raised me without gender. It's kind of the reason she named me Billie. It's not about being a strong woman - it's about being a strong person.
I am a Southern girl at heart, so I have a pulled pork sandwich and Key lime pie every day. It's a problem.
My whole life, they said, 'Do not act. You need to get a college degree'.
I went to performing arts camp, secretly taking classes - I got the lead in the musical, and my dad was like, 'Wait, I thought you were going here for music and knitting'.
I want my mom on 'Scream Queens'. She could play someone who is convinced she's Princess Leia. That could be her disease, and then as a plot twist, we could find out that she actually is Princess Leia.
I'm living the dream right now.
I went to NYU, and my parents had a rule that I needed to major in something other than acting if I wanted to pursue acting after college.
The great thing about women directors is that they're not only involved in the performances - they can gauge where we all are personally and know how to direct us better because of that.
When I first started acting, everyone in my family did not want me to act.
When you walk onto any set, it's usually primarily men. Which can be weird, especially when you're doing something emotionally challenging.
