Billie Lourd reveals 'struggle' since Carrie Fisher's death

Billie Lourd gets emotional with Ellen about her new life without Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds

The religion and psychology major said of how she was coping without the "goddesses" in her life: 'I don't know, if I say that I'm doing good, I'm too happy. It felt fitting that she she spoke so personally on Ellen considering how her mother was known to be so open about struggles in the public eye.

Fisher passed away in December after going into cardiac arrest on a flight at the age of 60.

Billie Lourd, the daughter of Carrie Fisher and granddaughter of Debbie Reynolds, calls their deaths "impossible to deal with". But the fact that Lucasfilm's creators place such a heavy emphasis on family meant that Carrie Fisher's tragic, untimely death in December of 2016 left the Star Wars fanbase in a state of mourning. Since that time, she has appeared on the Fox series Scream Queens and will be a featured player in the new season of American Horror Story. As it turns out, Abrams, who co-wrote and directed The Force Awakens (and has just been hired to direct and co-write Star Wars: Episode IX), had Lourd audition for the key role in the film that eventually went to Daisy Ridley.

"He ended up finding Daisy Ridley". This is one of the most uncomfortable environments in the world.

Actress Billie Lourd is quickly becoming a fan favorite in the American Horror Story universe. "[I ended up with a] tiny role with a couple of lines". Billie admitted that her mother didn't initially want her to become an actress.

"I came home [from set] and my mom said to me, 'You know, this is really weird that you're comfortable here, ' " Lourd recalled.

"She always takes over any talk show in this really aggressive way, so kudos to you", Lourd joked of her mom's personality. "If you're comfortable here, you should act'". She says this about playing Lieutenant Connix.

"I'm a big believer in things happening for a reason, and I think I ended up in that movie for a reason", she said.

But it appears the screen star has quickly acclimatized to the family business. The director then gave her a smaller part and Lourd immediately fit right in, which was a pleasant surprise to her mother.
