The Mirror is reporting on a new twist to the rumors that Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd will be appearing in Star Wars Episode VII. They're reporting that Lourd will be portraying a young Princess Leia, her mother's famous role from the Original Trilogy, in flashbacks in the film.
This is definitely a interesting take on the rumors. Lourd obviously has the family resemblance down and if you were to cast someone as a young Carrie Fisher her daughter would make sense. As for the issue of flashbacks, while they have never appeared in Star Wars films (the only time they've been used in Star Wars was The Clone Wars episode "Nightsisters") anything is possible in this new era of Star Wars.
As always, this is just a rumor until confirmed or denied by Lucasfilm or Disney.
