ET caught up with Carrie Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, on the Scream Queens PaleyFest carpet over the weekend, where the young actress opened up about reprising her Star Wars role for the next installment in the franchise.

"More working with my mom -- got to love it," Lourd said. "It's a family affair."

Lourd poked fun at her brief appearance as Lieutenant Connix in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, joking that she'll be "doing a little run in" and "a little button pressing."

"Who knows what could happen?" she quipped.

As Leia (Fisher) is now a general in the films, Connix is under her command and is expected to play a bigger part in Episode VIII.
