The actor also faced controversies after divorcing his wife and actress, Debbie Reynolds to marry her best friend, Elizabeth Taylor, not a mean feat in any way.

Eddie died in 2010, but his talent didn’t die with him, as his children went into showbiz. It hasn’t stopped with his children, with his granddaughter, Billie Lourd carving a name for herself as an actress.

WHO IS BILLIE LOURD?

July 17, 1992, marked the day Billie Lourd made her entrance into earth in Los Angeles, California. She was born to Bryan Lourd and Carrie Fisher. Billie’s father is a talent agent, while her mother was an actress, writer, and comedian.

With the strong talent pool in Billie’s family, especially from her mother’s side, it is not a surprise to find that she has herself become an outstanding actress. She has already played roles in hit movies like, “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens,” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.”
