I feel like I learned SO much about Billie Lourd from this interview with Ellen... like who knew her first go at acting was a small part alongside her mom, Carrie Fisher, in the most recently Star Wars movie?!

Like she said, things definitely DO happen for a reason because it was her last chance to act alongside her mom.

But also... who knew she had auditioned for the part of Rey?! Crazy!

It also sounds like Billie is doing well since losing both her mother and grandmother only a day apart, and that is really all we could hope for right now.

So happy for you Billie!
