Billie Lourd paid tribute to her mother Carrie Fisher at the premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Brace yourself. This is pretty emotional.

CARRIE FISHER’S DAUGHTER Billie Lourd paid a lovely tribute to the late actress at the premiere of The Last Jedi.

Fisher died last year at the age of 60, but people have kept her memory alive and well since her passing. Billie has been regularly sharing videos and photos of Carrie’s dog, as well as photos of the tattoo she got in honour of her mother.

A friend of Fisher also told the fantastic story of how she confided in Carrie that she had been sexually harassed by a Hollywood producer, which drove Fisher to march up to the assailants office to hand deliver him a cow’s tongue.

Once again, Billie has paid tribute to her legendary mother. This time by showing up to the premiere of The Last Jedi with her hair styled like Princess Leia.

Excuse me, there’s something in my eye.

On top of that, 25-year-old Billie also wore one of her mother’s rings to the event.

This is just too much.

In a previous interview, Lourd told Town & Country that she feels “a lot of pressure” when it comes to upholding Carrie’s “incredible legacy.”

The actress, who will play Lieutenant Connix in the upcoming Star Wars title, is doing a great job. She has said that maintaining her mother’s sense of humour has helped her immensely during her grieving.

When Lourd’s grandmother Debbie Reynolds died the day after Carrie passed away, the actress said that she immediately imagined Carrie saying “Well, she’s upstaging me once again. Of course.”
