Although Billie Lourd was spotted in one of the trailers for "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," Lucasfilm has now released what's billed as the first official look at Carrie Fisher's daughter in the new film.
She may sport Leia's classic "Star Wars" hairstyle, but the "Scream Queens" actress reiterates to People that the two characters are not related.
Despite coming from a showbiz family (her father is talent agent Bryan Lourd, her grandmother actress Debbie Fisher, her grandfather singer Eddie Fisher, and so on), Lourd only moved into acting following college, beginning with her role as Chanel #3 on Fox's "Scream Queens." On the horror comedy, her character wears earmuffs, a tribute to Carrie Fisher's iconic 'do.
"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" opens Dec. 18 across North America.
