After a devastating year, the actress sits down with her friend and Horror Story co-star Sarah Paulson to talk about the loss of her mother Carrie Fisher and her grandmother Debbie Reynolds.
It’s been quite a year for Billie Lourd. The 25-year-old actress has hit her stride in Hollywood: She appeared in the series Scream Queens and is starring in the latest installment of American Horror Story (which premieres this month on the FX network), and she’ll grace the big screen in the upcoming films Billionaire Boys Club and Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
But she has also faced huge personal tragedies. Last December her mother Carrie Fisher and grandmother Debbie Reynolds—who were both stars in their own right but also beloved as a charming, squabbling duo whose unique relationship was the subject of a recent HBO documentary—died within days of each other. Here, in a wide-ranging conversation with her friend and Horror Story co-star Sarah Paulson, Lourd opens up about her life with and without her mother and grandmother, and going into the family business against the wishes of her mom and dad (the talent agent Bryan Lourd).

Billie attended the 40 Years of Star Wars Panel during the 2017 Star Wars Celebration at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida (April 13). Billie attended the event and paid tribute to her mom Carrie Fisher. She wore a custom Tom Ford dress in honor of the iconic Princess Leia outfit.
The Force is stronger than ever in Carrie Fisher’s young Padawan.
Fisher’s daughter Billie Lourd made her first public appearance since the actress’ death, bringing her mother’s spirit to the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando on Thursday.
Lourd, 24, took the stage wearing a custom white Tom Ford dress in honor of her late mother’s iconic Princess Leia ensemble. Lourd and Ford collaborated on the dress, which was meant to evoke a modern-day version of her mother’s famous Star Wars look.
“My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began,” Lourd said onstage. “She was imperfect in many ways but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect. My mom, like Leia, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable.”
