Actress Billie Lourd is still standing strong and as graceful as ever following the rough closing of 2016 she had losing her famous mother and grandmother, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, in the span of days. She appeared on Ellen DeGeneres‘ talk show in promotion for her current series, American Horror Story, and shared how she first caught the acting bug despite her parents wanting her to pursue other career options.
Lourd recalled having J.J. Abrams call her about working on “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and having a small role but being very excited about the possibilities. Her mother told her it was “really weird” how comfortable she was being in the industry since it’s an “uncomfortable” industry, but since she felt at home there she got her mom’s blessing to act.
The two appeared together in that “Star Wars” movie and the 25-year-old described the experience as incredible. “It was incredible. I’m a big believer of everything happening for a reason and I think I ended up in that movie for a reason,” Lourd said. Earlier, Lourd touched on losing her mother and grandmother describing it as surreal.
Watch Billie Lourd talk about getting into acting, getting a chance to work with her mother on-screen, and more in the clip from Ellen. You can currently catch Lourd every week as Winter Anderson on AHS: Cult. Share your thoughts in the comments.
