Rumor: Billie Lourd to play Leia in flashbacks?

FRYSQUINT: SEQUEL TRILOGY RUMORS: Take seriously at your own risk.Here’s a new twist to the Billie Lourd ‘casting’ – The Sun (of course) via the Mirror is now apparently claiming that Carrie Fisher’s daughter be playing the young Princess Leia in flashback scenes, complete with buns.

While I don’t doubt that Lourd and any number of others (The Sun also names J.J. Abrams’ father and father-in-law) will cameo, let’s not forget that British tabloids are the worst.

Carrie Fisher is “fighting for the buns,” will start filming Episode VII in a few weeks

Carrie Fisher has been out and about lately, first in an interview with BBC Radio Wales (as reported by Digital Spy) and at the Hay-On-Wye literary festival.

She told the BBC that she’s “fighting for the buns, but that’s always what I’m doing. I think they should make an appearance if I just walked by a rocket window and I was in buns,” and would also appreciate the gang going and getting their nails done as a respite from all the blasting and lightsabers. (There you have it: The female agenda is Star Wars spa time. Really. We swear.)

At the festival, she revealed that aside from the script reading we’ve seen, she’s also done costume fittings and rehearsals for Episode VII, but not any actual filming yet. That’s expected to start in a few weeks.
