Carrie Fisher’s Daughter and John Boyega’s Father in Star Wars: Episode VII?

I’m a little late on this one. I’ve been dealing with Star Wars Rebels information all day.

Kellvin Chavez at Latino Review reports:

Billie Lourd, Carrie Fisher’s daughter is in “Star Wars: Episode VII.”  We don’t know what part it is (could be a cameo).

We know she has been on the set and has been tweeted about hanging out with principal actors in Star Wars: VII in which she strangely listed the yet unnamed Maisey Richardson-Sellers as one of the people hanging out with them… At this point, I think it is safe to say the role is probably a cameo or a smaller role.

The question at this point is Billie Lourd a gloried extra or was she given a role since she was going to be on set with her mother anyways?

I imagine in the coming week we will hear about Richardson-Sellers and Rian Johnson. If Lourd is in a small part, they might promote it for PR, it’s a great story that Fisher’s daughter is in the film. But I wouldn’t imagine it would be an announced casting if the role is tiny or she’s just an extra.

Edit: Lillian makes a good point about something that was swept under the rug during a busy news week:
