But during an interview with ET in which she was discussing an upcoming show that she will be in, called Scream Queens, Lourd confirmed that this was not the character she had been cast as when asked specifically about who she would be by the host.
“That’s a lie. That’s a rumor. I wish I was playing a young princess Leia.” she replied.
