Billie Lourd Confirms She Will Not Play a Young Princess Leia in 'The Force Awakens'

By: Dominic Jones

We've known for a while now that Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd would be appearing in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens.  Who she is playing is still yet to be confirmed, and rumors had her playing a young Princess Leia in flashback scenes.  Lourd, who is currently promoting her upcoming role in the film Scream Queens, revealed to Entertainment Tonight that she while she is in the film, she is not playing a young version of the character her mother made famous back in 1977.  Lourd said, "That’s a lie. That’s a rumor. I wish I played a young Princess Leia. Disney, I’m available."

You can see Lourd's response in the video below (at around 1:29)

This is one of the longer standing rumors to debunked.  The rumor can be traced back to late June of 2014 when it was first reported that Lourd would be in the film and then a few days later the Young Princess Leia rumors started.  Now the question is, who is Billie Lourd playing in The Force Awakens?  We'll likely get our answer on December 18th, 2015.
