Carrie Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd who gets her first big acting break in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has been shooting down rumors that she will play the daughter of Princess Leia and Han Solo in the movie.
“I’m not Princess Leia’s daughter,” she admitted to Interview.
Lourd added that the highly secretive nature of director JJ Abrams’s sequel was an exciting first experience in screen acting.
“This is the first job I’ve ever had – right into the fire,” she declared.
Lourd went onto talk about how her life has firmly been entrenched in Hollywood having grown up with a world famous mother and casting director father Bryan Lourd.
“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’.”
Lourd is one of many fresh faced actors that we’ll see in the new ‘Star Wars’ movie.
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’
opens on December 18 in the US and the UK.
