Playing Carrie Fisher’s Daughter Billie Lourd Confirms She’s Not Young Princess Leia in 'The Force Awakens'

Carrie Fisher’s daughter, Billie Lourd, confirms she’s not playing a young Princess Leia in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Fisher’s 22-year-old daughter is set to have a role in the upcoming Star Wars flick – and for obvious reasons, much of the Internet speculated she would play a young Leia in a flashback sequence. But the Scream Queens actress put those rumors to rest when she sat down with ET’s Cameron Mathison.

“That's a lie. That's a rumor,” said Billie. “I wish I played a young princess.”

This leaves us with plenty more speculating to do – and while Billie couldn’t say much about her role, she did tell us what she could about the anticipated film.

“I can't talk to you about the character, or the lack of character,” she admitted. “I didn't even say that. That was too much.”

There you have it, folks. No flashback Leia scenes for us!
