In new court documents filed by the Star Wars actress' estate executor, it was noted that Billie Lourd will inherit $6.8 million in property owned by her late mother, Entertainment Tonight reports. There could be more inheritance coming her way, as well, as the website said the probate case does not reflect money that could be in various trusts. Star Wars: The Last Jedi's John Boyega promises fans can expect an epic sendoff for Fisher's General Leia in that film (she'd filmed pretty much all of her material before her death, so expect her to still have a large role in the narrative).
The 25-year-old actress has reportedly been left Carrie's estate, worth an estimated $7m, according to TMZ. It has been heard that the actress has some possibility of inheriting more than the amount of property disclosed. She passed away at the age of 60. One day later, her mother, Debbie Reynolds, died at age 84. Fisher's daughter will also inherit personal belongings like jewellery, artwork and collectibles.
"If life's not amusing, then it's just true - and that would be unacceptable. When Debbie died the next day, I could just picture her saying, 'Well, she's upstaging me once again, of course - she had to'".
And now that Carrie Fisher is gone, she admits that she is finally living her life outside of her mother's and grandmother's shadows. "...and now is the first time in my life when I get to own my life and stand on my won", she told her "American Horror Story: Cult" co-star Sarah Paulson in a Town and Country magazine interview.
Lourd recently opened up about her desire to continue her mother's legacy while also blazing her own trail.
Although Billie knows she was out-shone by Carrie, she "loves" being known as the daughter of Princess Leia.
