Billie Lourd appeared in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, as junior controller Kaydel Ko Connix. She was easily spotted with her hair up in buns just like her mom, Carrie Fisher, in the original Star Wars from 1977. At Paleyfest this weekend, she said she will appear in Episode VIII. “I’m working on Star Wars VIII, but that’s all I can say,” she said.
This is very exciting news! Especially when she was asked in Slash Film if she would have a bigger role she replied with a, “Oh yeah, yeah,” but she couldn’t tell if that meant more scenes with her mom. John Boyega is stealing many hearts! A day ago he went to the children’s hospital dressed as Finn. This is so cute! You need to see the smiles on those children their faces!

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper. ❤️❤️❤️
