Carrie Fisher’s daughter has landed a role in the new “Star Wars” movie, according to a U.K. report.

Fisher found fame as Princess Leia in the original sci-fi trilogy and is reportedly resuming her role in the seventh installment, which is currently filming in Britain.

Her 21-year-old daughter, Billie Lourd, has now been hired to play a young Leia in flashback scenes due to her striking resemblance to her mother, according to Britain’s The Sun newspaper.

A source tells the publication, “Billie flew into the U.K. to join her mother earlier this month… She will even have her hair tied up in Princess Leia-style buns. She’s an aspiring actress and singer so she grabbed the opportunity with both hands… Carrie backed the move as she wanted somebody in her family to play her most famous role.”

The filming of “Star Wars: Episode VII” was disrupted in June after Harrison Ford broke his leg on set.
