Billie Lourd Gives Touching Tribute To Her Mom At “Star Wars” Convention

Billie Lourd Gives Touching Tribute To Her Mom At Star Wars Convention featureBillie Lourd took the stage at “Star Wars Celebration 2017″ to channel her inner Princess Leia. As fans celebrated the 40th anniversary of the original 1977 film, Billie was there to pay a special tribute to her mom, Carrie Fisher. Carrie played iconic role of Princess Leia Organa in the franchise, including in the recent sequel, “The Force Awakens.” Billie was there to share why fans and their conventions meant so much to her mom.

“My mom, like Leia, was never afraid to speak her mind and say things that might’ve made most people uncomfortable, but not me and not you,” Billie began. “That was why she loved you–because you accepted and embraced all of her, the strong soldier of a woman she was and also the vulnerable side of her.”

Billie offered up the three things her mom taught her. First, she recited Leia’s famous “Help me, Obi-wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.” speech from the first movie and received a thunderous round of applause for it.

“Secondly, she taught me that if life isn’t funny, it’s just true, and that is unacceptable,” Billie continued. “And, finally, I learned by knowing her that the most evolved person is seemingly a contradiction.”

Watch Billie’s entire speech below, plus see a close-up of her look.

The “Scream Queens” star is Carrie’s daughter and Debbie’s granddaughter, and she’s finally spoken about where she’s at following the tandem of deaths in her family.
