Carrie Fisher's daughter and everyone's favorite Scream Queen, Billie Lourd, made a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as junior controller Kaydel Ko Connix.
While promoting Scream Queens at Paleyfest on March 13, Lourd confirmed that she is returning for Episode VII. "I am working on Star Wars VIII but that’s all I can say,” she said.
When asked if her role will be larger, she answered, “Oh yeah, yeah. The last one was a little Where’s Waldo-y.” She also teased that this may mean she has more scenes with her mother.
Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently filming. It is set for release in December 2017.
I like Billie so I'm excited. The character was actually in the novel quite a bit so I'm not surprised they are going to keep using her. Also, it makes sense to keep the same background/supporting characters as much as possible in settings like the Resistance base.
