The 24-year-old Scream Queens star stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers earlier this month where she opened up about Debbie and even did a lovely impression of her.
“First of all, she gets really upset when I get called Carrie Fisher‘s daughter,” Billie said. “She wants people to call me Debbie Reynolds‘ granddaughter. It’s very offensive to her.”
Billie really wanted to follow in her mother and grandmother’s footsteps of being an actress, so Debbie showed her diaries from when she was younger to make sure that’s what Billie really wanted to do.
“You’re sitting in the makeup chair. It’s five in the morning,” Billie said (in Debbie‘s voice). “They’ve pulled out all your eyebrows. You have no eyelashes left. Your hair is a shell of itself. And all you wanted to be was a gym teacher.”
That didn’t convince Billie to give up her dreams.
Sadly, she lost Debbie and her mom Carrie in the same week. Our thoughts are with her and her entire family right now.
