Tragically Carrie’s own mother and Billie’s grandmother Debbie Reynolds died just a day later on December 28th 2016. 

Fisher’s Star Wars co-star Mark Hamil also went online to celebrate the star.

He posted a candid on-set shot of the pair filming the sci-fi epic while writing: ‘ Happy Birthday to a very special someone who was never not fun & always highly tolerant of my juvenile on-set high jinks… even when she wasn’t in the mood.’

The actor, who played Carrie’s twin brother Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars saga -added the hashtag ‘#CarrieOnForever’ and a heart emoji.

Billie recently opened up about growing up with her famous mom during an appearance on the New Day podcast with host Claire Bidwell Smith.

‘My main job when [my mom] was alive was taking care of her and making sure she was okay,’ she explained.

‘I was her main support, and I was seven, for a lot of the time, and that was really hard and that’s why I grew up really fast because I was her best friend. I was her mother, I was her kid, I was her everything.

‘And that’s one of the things I’m learning not to do with my kid.’

She said that she absorbed lessons from both positive and negative aspects of her childhood memories with her late mother.

‘There’s a lot of things that my mom taught me to do and then there’s a lot that is, honestly it might be more valuable, of what not to do,’ said the Los Angeles native. ‘And that’s one of the things that I will not do to my son is put this pressure on him that I had on me.’

Lourd, who’s been seen on Scream Queens and American Horror Story, welcomed her first child with fiancé Austen Rydell in September of 2020.
