Billie Catherine Lourd (born July 17, 1992) is an American actress. She is known for starring as Chanel #3 in the Fox horror comedy series Scream Queens (2015–2016) and for her roles in the FX horror anthology series American Horror Story (2017–present). She also appears as Lieutenant Connix in the Star Wars sequel trilogy (2015–2019).
Lourd was born July 17, 1992, in Los Angeles, California, the only child of actress Carrie Fisher and talent agent Bryan Lourd. Lourd is the granddaughter of actress Debbie Reynolds and singer Eddie Fisher, and the niece of Todd Fisher, Joely Fisher, and Tricia Leigh Fisher. She has a sister, Ava, from her father's marriage to Bruce Bozzi, who her father legally adopted. From her mother's side, she is of Russian Jewish and Scots-Irish/English descent. Her godmother is actress Meryl Streep. Writer Bruce Wagner is Lourd's godfather.
Lourd played the role of Lieutenant Connix in the 2015 Star Wars sequel film The Force Awakens. On The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2017, she said that she auditioned for the lead role of Rey, which ultimately went to Daisy Ridley. Lourd also appeared in the second installment, Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), and will return in the third film, Star Wars: Episode IX (2019).
In February 2015, Lourd was cast in the Fox horror-comedy series Scream Queens. Lourd's character, a rich and disaffected sorority girl known as Chanel #3, wears earmuffs as an homage to Fisher's iconic "cinnamon buns" hairstyle from the original Star Wars film. In December 2015, Lourd spoke about her initial meeting with Scream Queens creator Ryan Murphy:
I thought he wanted me to audition, and so I was just very relaxed and casual about the news. I didn't think he wanted to hire me, I knew that's not how things worked. The next day, they told me, you know that offer you didn't sound too excited about? It's an offer, not an audition. I flipped out. I didn't know how he was doing this! The next week I was in New Orleans.
By December 2015, Lourd had joined the cast of the American biographical crime-drama film Billionaire Boys Club, in the role of Rosanna, love interest of Kyle Biltmore. The film was released on July 17, 2018. Its release was put off due to claims of sexual harassment committed by actor Kevin Spacey, who stars in the film. In 2016, Lourd returned to Scream Queens for its second season. She joined the cast of American Horror Story in the role of Winter Anderson for the series' seventh season. She also portrayed Linda Kasabian, a former member of the Manson Family cult. In May 2018, it was announced that Lourd had been cast in Booksmart, a film directed by Olivia Wilde and set for release in 2019. She returned to American Horror Story for its eighth season, Apocalypse, playing Mallory, a powerful witch.

I was raised Protestant but I'm half-Jewish—the wrong half.
