It has been long known that Star Wars: Episode VII would see the children of the original trilogy taking centre stage, but now that idea has taken a different turn. The actual plot will focus on the children of the characters, however Carrie Fisher’s real life daughter is apparently getting a role in the film.
Billie Lourd (pictured above) is being rumoured by Latino Review for a part, but it is unknown whether it will simply be a cameo or something more substantial.
If the rumours turn out to be true, this will mark the big-screen debut for the 21-year old, so it is unlikely a big part would be given.
She wouldn’t be the only rumoured cameo, with action mega-star Tom Cruise also rumoured to make an appearance.
Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled for a December 18, 2015 release date, as long as the film isn’t delayed by Harrison Ford’s on-set injury.
