Billie Lourd          

"Booksmart" and "Scream Queens" Actress, Daughter of Carrie Fisher

Billie Catherine Lourd is an actress, known for Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens, Scream Queens, Booksmart and American Horror Story.

Lourd played the role of Lieutenant Connix in the 2015 Star Wars sequel film The Force Awakens. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2017, she said that she auditioned for the lead role of Rey, which ultimately went to Daisy Ridley. Lourd also appeared in the second installment, Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), and the third, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (2019). Lourd also played her mother's character for a brief flashback in the film in which her face was digitally replaced by Fisher's likeness, using imagery from Return of the Jedi.

In February 2015, Lourd was cast in the Fox horror-comedy series Scream Queens. Lourd's character, a rich and disaffected sorority girl known as Chanel#3, wears earmuffs as an homage to Fisher's iconic "cinnamon buns" hairstyle from the original Star Wars film. She joined another Ryan Murphy project in 2015 by being cast in American Horror Story in the role of Winter Anderson for the series' seventh season. She also portrayed Linda Kasabian, a former member of the Manson Family cult. She returned to American Horror Story for its eighth season, Apocalypse, playing Mallory, a powerful witch. Lourd also returned to American Horror Story for its ninth season, 1984, portraying serial killer-chased punk rocker Montana Duke. Murphy stated that her work in 1984 impressed him so much that he decided to write Lourd her own miniseries. On February 26, 2020, it was announced that Lourd would return to American Horror Story for the tenth season of the series.

She appeared in the ninth episode of the eleventh and final season of the NBC sitcom Will & Grace as Fiona, the granddaughter of the character that her real-life grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, portrayed during the show's original run. She is also set to star in the upcoming movie Ticket to Paradise alongside Julia Roberts and George Clooney, as well as in an episode of the American Horror Story spin-off anthology American Horror Stories.

Lourd is engaged to her fiancé, Austen Rydell, and as of September 2020, is a new mother of son Kingston Fisher Lourd Rydell.
