Billie Lourd is no doubt a fan favorite! The ear muff wearing ( a nod to her mother’s STAR WARS epic character Princess Leia ) expressionless Chanel #3 on Fox series SCREAM QUEENS joins the cast of Season 7 of AMERICAN HORROR STORY.
Billie Lourd has experienced a year that would break most but it is not only impressive but inspiring to see pay homage to her bloodline and keep at the craft that has transcended the generations before her. Her mother, Carrie Fisher (STAR WARS) unexpectedly left us and as if Hollywood wrote this real-life tragedy, Lourd’s grandmother, Debbie Reynolds (SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN and mother to Carrie Fisher) then passed just a day after. Lourd has been remarkably strong and handling the loss with grace and now, she pays respect and makes sure the show goes on!
Fox has stayed very committed to producing fresh quality variety in the last year or so. With such freshman titles like ‘The Exorcist,’ ‘Wayward Pines,’ ‘Lucifer,’ and ‘Sleepy Hollow.’ Some more successful than others but they wanted to reach and audience that has been limited in TV options for far too long! But breakout hit ‘Scream Queens’ tapped horror and its Millenials.
From award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy (“The People V. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story,” “American Horror Story,” “Nip/Tuck”), Brad Falchuk (“American Horror Story,” “Glee,” “Nip/Tuck”) and Ian Brennan (“Glee”), Season Two of SCREAM QUEENS graduates from the college campus and into a hospital with a haunted past, as a new and terrifyingly funny mystery begins. Each week, Season Two will delve deep into the fascinating and bizarre medical cases under observation at the hospital, while using the building’s sordid history as the springboard for the series’ overarching mystery.
Deadline reports: Billie Lourd is set as a lead opposite Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters in the upcoming seventh season of Ryan Murphy’s FXanthology series American Horror Story. In addition to returning AHS stars Paulson and Peters, Lourd joins fellow new addition to the horror drama franchise, Billy Eichner.
As usual, details about Lourd’s character are being kept under wraps. Also little is known about the premise of the new AHS installment beyond the fact that it is set in the aftermath of the recent presidential election, with the first episode taking place on Election Night.
Exciting news as well as highly anticipated presentation! Premier of season 7 slated for this fall and we will keep you posted
