Billie Lourd Debbie Reynolds Carrie Fisher The Ellen De Generes Show

If I say I'm doing good, I'm too happy. It felt fitting that she she spoke so personally on Ellen considering how her mother was known to be so open about struggles in the public eye.

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

Fisher passed away in December after going into cardiac arrest on a flight at the age of 60.

It's been nearly a year since the world lost Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, just one day apart from each other.

The greatest defences are often the least exciting, and consist of doing the basic IT housekeeping well. Firewalls have also been strengthened and stronger encryption used on passwords, the person said.

The 25-year-old actress appeared alongside Fisher in both "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", which was filmed prior to the Fisher's death in December 2016.

After her mom realized how comfortable she was on the set of "Star Wars", she nudged Lourd to make it a career. Also a busy actress, Lourd has fulfilled her obligations to promote shows she stars in like American Horror Story: Cult, where she reteams with Ryan Murphy, who also created her series Scream Queens. Her lack of experience, and perhaps the fact that she isn't exactly the spitting image of her mom may have led to J.J. and his crew ultimately deciding on Daisy Ridley for the role of Rey, whose parentage remains a mystery heading into this Holiday season's sequel. He ended up finding Daisy Ridley, who's an incredible actress-so talented! This is one of the most uncomfortable environments in the world. But I went in and he ended up giving me this tiny role with a couple lines.

While Lourd is successfully managing to carry on the acting tradition in her family, it no doubt has to be a bittersweet endeavor.

It was with Carrie Fisher that Billie had her first taste of professional acting. "If you're comfortable here, you should act'". Lourd called the experience "incredible".

A North Hollywood dance studio established by late silver screen star Debbie Reynolds will hit the auction block next month, the Los Angeles Times reports.

"She always takes over any talk show in this really aggressive way, so kudos to you", Lourd joked.
