Carrie Fisher’s little girl Billie Lourd just made a starting revelation about her casting process on Legend Wars: The Drive Awakens. And it could be the biggest hint we’ve noticed yet as to whom Rey’s real parents are. Since it turns out, Billie Lourd was very seriously considered for the part of Rey in Celebrity Wars 7. Is this the biggest hint yet that Princess Leia and Han Single are in reality Rey’s parents? Who recognizes?
But it does indeed make an awful lot of sense as to why director J.J. Abrams could have been considering her for the role in the first place. Lourd ended up with a much smaller role in The Force Awakens. She takes on Lieutenant Connix in moments that allowed her to act opposite her mother, who passed away last December. Star Wars 7 designated Billie’s acting debut. Her lack of experience, as well as perhaps the actual fact that she isn’t the spitting image of her mom may have led to J.J. and his team ultimately choosing Daisy Ridley for the role of Rey, whose parentage remains a enigma proceeding into this Getaway season’s sequel.
Lourd was one of the numerous actresses who auditioned for the part of Rey. Since that time, she has made an appearance on the Fox series Scream Queens and will be a presented player in the year of North american Horror Story. Apparently, it was J.J. Abrams who prompted her to audition for the role of Rey, which is currently leading many to trust there is a interconnection between Leia and Rey that was not disclosed yet. About not being cast as Rey, Billie Lourd had this to say.
“He ended up finding Daisy Ridley. Who’s an unbelievable celebrity, so talented. [I were left with a] small role with a couple of lines.”
Even though she wasn’t cast in the business lead, Billie Lourd was past thrilled to get cast in the movie by any means. Billie accepted that her mom didn’t in the beginning want her to be an celebrity. Until she noticed how comfortable her child was before the camera. Carrie Fisher transformed her tune, and told Lourd to keep at it, as long as she was enjoying it.
“My mother said, ‘You know this is very weird that you’re comfortable here. This is one of the most uncomfortable environments on the globe. Like, if you’re comfortable here, you should do this.”
Billie Lourd feels fate was on her behalf area, and she’s happy that she didn’t have to transport the weight of the movie on her own shoulder blades. She wants the role she was give. She says this about participating in Lieutenant Connix.
“It was extraordinary. I’m a large believer in things taking place for grounds. And I think I ended up in that movie for a reason. It was really incredible for all of us to have that experience mutually.”
Lieutenant Connix will return with a somewhat bigger role in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which signifies Carrie Fisher’s last display screen performance as Basic Leia Organa. Billie Lourd has learned all to well from living with her mom how to try out the Star Wars game though, and she’ll not hand out the movie’s big secrets. She says.
“You might not know her name, but you need to know Connix is back and much better than ever.”
Billie Lourd will give back on the big screen in Legend Wars: THE VERY LAST Jedi this yuletide. Until then, you can capture her in a clip from her Ellen interview in the Twitter embed below.
