Early Life

Billie Catherine Lourd, the only child of actress Carrie Fisher and talent agent Bryan Lourd, was born on July 17, 1992, in Los Angeles, California. Lourd is also the sole granddaughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds, as well as the niece of actors Todd Fisher, Joely Fisher, and Tricia Leigh Fisher. She has an adopted sister named Ava who was born of her father’s union with Bruce Bozzi. She is of Scots-Irish/English and Russian-Jewish ancestry, descended from her mother’s side. Meryl Streep, an actress, is her godmother.

Lourd’s godfather is author Bruce Wagner. In his book (Been There Done That), Eddie Fisher revealed the names of his grandchildren Catherine Fisher Lourd and Billy. At Le Bal des débutantes at the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris in 2008, Lourd made her stage debut. Chanel outfitted her appropriately for the situation. The Harvard-Westlake School in Los Angeles served as Lourd’s high school. 2014 saw her graduate from the Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University with a self-designed degree in “Art and Business as Religion.”


In 2015, Billie Lourd landed her first acting gig in the space epic movie “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The movie, which was directed by JJ Abrams, was a part of the renowned “Star Wars” series. Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, and Daisy Ridley were among the other performers in the movie. Lourd’s portrayal as Lieutenant KaydelKoConnix brought her great fame. The movie, which cost over $300 million to produce, made nearly $2 billion in box office revenue. It also earned favourable reviews.

She also had a minor part in the 2015 television comedy-horror series “Scream Queens.” In September, it first aired. Emma Roberts, Skyler Samuels, Lea Michele, Glen Powell, and Diego Boneta were among the actors that appeared in the series. The narrative focused on a sorority that was victimised by a serial murderer. After two seasons, the programme was cancelled due to generally unfavourable reviews.

She reprised Lieutenant KaydelKoConnix in her subsequent movie, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which she starred in in 2017. Despite having a $250 million budget, the movie made over $1 billion in box office receipts. Even the detractors gave it accolades. The movie, which was directed by Rian Johnson, starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Daisy Ridley, and Adam Driver. The seventh season of the American anthology TV series “American Horror Story,” which debuted in 2017, had a major part for her in “American Horror Story: Cult.” The action of the tale takes place in the Michigan suburb of Brookfield Heights.

After the 2016 US presidential election, a cult terrorised the locals. Positive reviews and several accolades were bestowed to the programme. She appeared in the eighth season of American Horror Story, “American Horror Story: Apocalypse,” which aired in 2018. Similar to the previous season, it received favourable reviews and many honours.

She appeared in the biographical crime drama “Billionaire Boys Club” in 2018 in a minor role. The James Cox-directed movie had AnselElgort, TaronEgerton, Kevin Spacey, and Emma Roberts among its cast. It was modelled on the 1980s Southern California Billionaire Boys Club. The story revolves on a gang of wealthy teens who participate in a murderous Ponzi scam. Both the movie’s box office performance and its critical reception were dismal.

She appeared in the comedy movie “Booksmart” in 2019. The film’s director was Olivia Wilde. Both critically and commercially, the movie was a hit. In “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” she will now make an appearance
