Playing Princess Leia was hard for my mother: Billie Lourd

Friday, August 04, 2017

Actress Billie Lourd said playing the iconic role of Princess Leia took a toll on her mother, actress Carrie Fisher, as she found it difficult to leave the character behind when playing other parts. The 25-year-old said an artiste has to be careful while choosing roles as the fear of being typecast always looms.

"That was hard for her. It's tough, when you play an iconic character, to break away from it. You have to make sure you have a lot of variety, and make sure you choose roles that aren't similar to others, or else you get pigeonholed as one thing," Lourd said.

The 'Scream Queens' actress said she would have been a little uncomfortable to play a character like Princess Leia, that has acquired the status of a sex symbol in Hollywood. "I don't know if I would play a woman in space in a bikini. You also have to be careful about getting oversexualised, and that was hard for her," she concluded.
