Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd will play a younger version of her mother's character in JJ Abrams' 'Star Wars: Episode VII', according to reports.

According to the Daily Star, the 21-year-old aspiring actress and singer, Lourd will play Princess Leia in flashback scenes while her mother will reprise the iconic role in the present day.

Lourd has been selected by Abrams for the role of young Princess Leia as she looked very much like her mom.

Lourd will join an ever-expanding cast of Episode VII which will not release until December 2015.
