Billie Lourd was an American stage and screenwriter who has written for some of the most celebrated authors of the past and into the future. She has been called “The Queen of English Comedy” by the comedian Carol Burnett. Lourd has written for such acclaimed authors as Richard Lewis, Joan Rivers, Henry Kissinger, John liner and Beverly D’Angelo. Her biographical book Billie Lourd: A Life of Performance is a fascinating look at the life of the greatest stage and screenwriter of our time.
Billie Lourd was born on a dirt road in rural Louisiana. Her childhood was one of hardship and her childhood was punctuated with some by her mother’s bouts with alcoholism. After graduating from high school she attended the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa where she became known as Billie Jean King. While at the university she began to work as a stand up comedian, which earned her appearances on such television programs as Saturday Night Live, American Bandstand and Hollywood celebrities were often her audience. It was while performing at the Hollywood Improv show that Billie Lourd first came in contact with director Tim Burton who was looking for a female comic to star in one of his horror anthologies.
Billie Lourd met and fell in love with Anne Beckwith, who played the character of Psyche in the Tim Burton film “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. The couple went on to star in several other horror movies including “Scream Queens”. As time progressed, the couple worked on several more horror movies including “Psycho” Billie Lourd took on a new persona as Harley Rider in the series of popular “superheros” made by Disney. As an actress Billie Lourd has appeared in such films as “The Whole Truth” and “utherletics” She has also had a chance to star in some Hollywood movies such as the George Clooney vehicle “Glee”. Billie Lourd also appeared in a number of episodes of television shows, including “24” and ” Judging noses”
Currently, Billie Lourd is starring in a new web series called “Mommy’s Army” in which she plays the mother in an ensemble cast of women in New York City. The web series was created as a response to the success of the television series “ouses” on FX. In the first season of “ouses”, mother and daughter struggle to deal with their dysfunctional family while struggling to save the world. In the eighth season, mommy and daughter have left the nest and traveled across the country in order to save the world, while dealing with an abusive father.
When discussing the role of Billie Lourd in FX’s new series she brings to mind her many popular characters from the television series” Witches of East End”. Billie Lourd plays Joyce Lauterman, who is the mother of Richard (Eben Hurley), a man with a demons possessing soul that has been trapped in hell. Richard is fighting his way through the wilderness to find his soul. Billie Lourd appears in several episodes as Joyce. Her co-stars are Stephanie Powell, Ariel Winter, and Danny Lowcks.
In closing, I have seen some comments on the internet from someone claiming to be a Billie Lourd fan. These comments reveal that Billie Lourd has not only appeared in at least ten Star Wars films, but that she also had a small role in the second Star Wars movie “Revenge of the Sith”. I could not find any articles or pictures of Billie Lourd in any of the Star Wars films, so I contacted the official Star Wars twitter account and asked them if they had a photo of Billie Lourd, if so what was it? They said they did not have a picture of Billie, but they did provide a link to one of her old TV shows called “The Love Boat” in which she guest stars as herself. So either Billie Lourd has appeared in more Star Wars films than we actually know or this is simply not true.
