Billie Lourd Pays Tribute To Her Mom at 'Star Wars' Event in Florida

Billie Lourd Pays Tribute To Her Mom at 'Star Wars' Event in Florida

Billie Lourd stepped out to speak about her late mom Carrie Fisher for the first time since her December 2016 death.

The 24-year-old actress hit the stage at a Star Wars celebration on Thursday (April 12) in Orlando, Florida.

“My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began,” Billie told the crowd (via People) while introducing a tribute video. “She was imperfect in many ways but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect. My mom, like Leia, wasn’t ever afraid to speak her mind and say things that might have made most people uncomfortable.”

She added, “She taught me by her own example, that the most evolved person is seemingly a contradiction — they are both the strongest and the most vulnerable person in the room. And that was her. That is Leia.”

Billie donned a white custom-made Tom Ford dress inspired by Princess Leia.

'Legends of Tomorrow' Return Episode Will Save 'Star Wars'!

'Legends of Tomorrow' Return Episode Will Save 'Star Wars'!

It looks like we all owe Star Wars to the Legends of Tomorrow!

When the CW show returns later next month, their entire mission is to save the movie franchise — by saving a young George Lucas.

Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim dished on the return episode, emphasizing that George Lucas has a profound impact on Ray (Brandon Routh) and Nate (Nick Zano).

“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school. As a result, he never makes Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark,” he explains.

“As a result, Ray, who became an engineer because of Star Wars, and Nate, who became a historian because of Raiders, slowly start to lose their brilliance, because those things that inspired them to become who they are didn’t exist.”

Check out the trailer for the return ep below!
