Carrie Fisher's daughter is taking on a role in JJ Abrams' Star Wars movie - and there's now a suggestion as to what her role is...

News broke over the weekend of a fresh piece of casting news for JJ Abrams' now shooting Star Wars: Episode VII. Specifically, that Billie Lourd was taking on a role in the movie.

Lourd is the daughter of Carrie Fisher, who is reprising her role as Leia in the new film. And a fresh report now suggests the role that Lourd may be taking on in the new Star Wars. As always, don't read on if you don't want to know (although we can't imagine this counts as much of a spoiler, in truth). We'll pop a picture in here, just to be on the safe side...

Still here? Right then. Lourd is rumoured to be playing a younger version of Princess Leia in the new film, And while she has little or no professional acting experience, she does have a similarity to her mother. Don't be surprised, therefore, if she pops up quickly in a flashback or two.

Filming continues on Star Wars: Episode VII at the moment. It's due for release in December 2015.
