Carrie Fisher's Daughter To Play Role In Star Wars: Episode VII

Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd has been cast in the new Star Wars movie according to reports.

Latino Review broke the news that 21-year-old Billie was to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII, in an unknown role.

Now The Sun has reported that Billie - Carrie's only child from her relationship with casting agent Bryan Lourd - will play a young Princess Leia in flashback scenes in the film.

The 57-year-old actress reprises her role as Princess Leia in the upcoming latest installment of the sci-fi series, which is currently being filmed at Pinewood Studios in Buckinghamshire, southeast England.

Even though Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd, 21, is a relative unknown, director J.J. Abrams is said to have chosen her to play a young version of her mother's character because of their visual similarities.

In a report by The Sun a source gave insight as what to expect from the scenes she would be playing in the upcoming film.

‘She will even have her hair tied up in Princess Leia-style buns. She's an aspiring actress and singer so she grabbed the opportunity with both hands.

‘Carrie backed the move as she wanted somebody in her family to play her most famous  role.’
A source close to the set claims that Billie joined her mother on set in early June 2014.

“Billie flew into the UK to join her mother earlier this month,” a source told The Sun, as reported by the Daily Mail.

Star Wars: Episode VII also stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie. They join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.

Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled for release in December 2015.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
