Scream Queens star Billie Lourd has let slip that she will be reprising her The Force Awakens role as Kaydel Ko Connix in Star Wars Episode VIII...
Miss Lourd couldn't say much more than that, but did confirm to /Film that the role would be more significant that her role in The Force Awakens. Billie is the daughter of Carrie Fisher to whom she delivered her only line in The Force Awakens. This is what Billie had to say about her Eoside VIII appearance.
We here at Talk Star Wars HQ believe that recent filming in Dubrovnik was centered around a memorial service for those lost on Hosnian Prime in The Force Awakens and that it may very well be a cover for General Organa to meet with some Republic Senetors, sympathetic to the needs of the Resistance. Our money in on Mon Mothma and Lando Calrision meeting Leia to discuss their support for her cause under cover of the "state event". Perhaps this will be where Billie Lourd appears, as one of General Leia's aides? It's too early to build a solid theory, but what do you think? Speculate freely in the comments below.
