Carrie Fisher’s Daughter Billie Lourd Gets Support from ‘Scream Queens’ Costars
Many stars have honored late actress, author and activist Carrie Fisher since her death from a heart attack on December 27, including her Star Wars costars. And her daughter, actress Billie Lourd, is receiving support from her own colleagues on FOX's Scream Queens.
"This girl is one of the strongest, most fearless individuals I've ever met," Lautner wrote. "Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I'm lucky to know you @praisethelourd .. ❤️, me."
Abigail Breslin, who plays Lourd's fellow Chanel, wrote in Instagram, "RIP Carrie, you were amazing... and thank you for making such an incredibly brave, kind and brilliant person who I'm lucky to call my best friend."
Jamie Lee Curtis, who like Lourd is the daughter of a famous film actress (Psycho star Janet Leigh), posted a photo of Lourd in costume as Scream Queens' Chanel No. 3, writing, "My mother's heart goes out to this exquisitely talented young woman. Her mother's spirit and talent lives on in her and I'm sure all of Carrie's fans and friends will give her space and privacy."
"Holding my dear friend billie, and her sweet mommy Carrie in my heart right now..," Lea Michele wrote underneath a photo of Lourd and Fisher together.
John Stamos also remarked on Lourd's close relationship with her legendary mom, writing, "Oh how you loved telling stories about your mom -and I loved hearing them [...] You were so proud of her and she of you. She will live through you forever and we’re all lucky for that. Love you Billie."
Meanwhile, Keke Palmer responded to a fan's tweeted inquiry regarding why she wasn't expressing condolences to Lourd on social media.
"There's a real world that exists offline and just because people aren't posting it doesn't mean it isn't happening," Palmer wrote.
Lourd said of her mother in an interview with Ryan Murphy from Teen Vogue in September, "She told me to be true, and kind, and confident in yourself. She raised me to not think of men and women as different. She raised me without gender. It’s kind of the reason she named me Billie. It’s not about being a strong woman — it’s about being a strong person. She once told me, 'I never sat you down with a credo. It was more about leading by example.'"
