If I say I'm doing good, I'm too happy.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen Show Monday, Lourd said Abrams turned to her to read for Rey before he landed the actress who would come to embody the role.

"My mom said, 'You know this is really weird that you're comfortable here".

Fisher died of cardiac arrest on December 27, four days after experiencing a medical emergency during a transatlantic flight from London to Los Angeles.

Hailed as the people's princess, Fisher's death means that The Last Jedi will signal her final appearance as Leia Organa - no VFX resurrection in Episode IX, or beyond - and there is perhaps no one who felt that loss more than her beloved daughter, Billie Lourd. But the fact that Lucasfilm's creators place such a heavy emphasis on family meant that Carrie Fisher's tragic, untimely death in December of 2016 left the Star Wars fanbase in a state of mourning. The minor part also kicked off her acting career as she went on to star in Scream Queens, and now in sister Ryan Murphy series, #AmericanHorrorStory.

Lourd said director J.J. Abrams asked her to audition for the lead role before Daisy Ridley was cast. He ended up finding Daisy Ridley, who's an incredible actress-so talented!

"[I ended up with a] tiny role with a couple of lines". "If you're comfortable here, you should do this, '" she recalled. She says this about playing Lieutenant Connix.

The actress explained that she feels like it was an fantastic experience to act with her mom and believes it happened for a reason. "It was really incredible for us to have that experience together".

Lourd, however, has comported herself quite well in the face of the tragedies, having to address the big losses on a very public stage including Star Wars Celebration in April, where she introduced a tribute to Fisher.
