Born on July 17, 1992, Billie Lourd is Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher’s only child. Fittingly, she tried out for a role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while she did earn the prominent role of Lieutenant Connix in the 2015 prequel, she initially auditioned for the lead role of Rey. Lourd stayed a frequent presence throughout the sequel trilogy, and even played a younger version of Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia in a flashback that used digital editing to add in her mother’s likeness over Lourd’s face.

Outside of sci-fi, Fisher’s only daughter is an iconic presence in horror and horror-comedy through Scream Queens and American Horror Story. Even in FX’s horror-comedy Scream Queens, Lourd pays homage to her mother, as her character known as Chanel#3 wears earmuffs similar in appearance to Leia’s cinnamon bun style.
