Carrie Fisher's Daughter Almost Played Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Carrie Fisher's Daughter Almost Played Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The couple was together for approximately eight months, and Lautner was with Lourd during the most hard time in her life. The minor part also kicked off her acting career as she went on to star in Scream Queens, and now in sister Ryan Murphy series, #AmericanHorrorStory.

The fact that Lourd originally auditioned for Rey is definitely interesting. He ended up finding Daisy Ridley, who's an incredible actress-so talented!

"I went in and he ended up giving me a tiny role with a couple of lines and I was super excited".

It was with Carrie Fisher that Billie had her first taste of professional acting. The two properties are some of the items included in a personal property auction drawing from items owned by Reynolds and her daughter, Carrie Fisher.

But despite looking thoroughly composed, the New York University graduate admitted of her twin losses: 'Yeah, it's completely surreal.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show Monday, Lourd said Abrams turned to her to read for Rey before he landed the actress who would come to embody the role. "I came home [from set] and my mom said to me, 'You know, this is really weird that you're comfortable here, '" Lourd said. "If you're comfortable here, you should do this.You should act'".

Reynolds, famous for her roles in seminal Hollywood musicals like Singin' in the Rain and The Unsinkable Molly Brown, established the dance studio in 1979 and it has served as a school and practice facility since then. And I think I ended up in that movie for a reason.

"She always takes over any talk show in this really aggressive way, so kudos to you", Lourd joked of her mom's personality. It's been a very hard year for Lourd, having suffered the loss of her mom last December, followed by the death of her maternal grandmother, Debbie Reynolds the following day.

"You might not know her name, but you should know Connix is back and better than ever."

#CarrieFisher often visited Ellen as a guest over the talk show's 15 seasons and counting run; it also happened to be the last talk show she appeared on before her surprising death.
