Meet Billie Lourd, '50s Pop Star Eddie Fisher's Granddaughter Who Is a Talented Actress
Talent seems to run in the family of Eddie Fisher and transcended into his granddaughter, Billie Lourd, the only child of Eddie’s daughter and popular actress, Carrie Fisher.
Billie has followed the path of her mother and grandfather to pursue a career in entertainment. Eddie Fisher was famous in the 1950s, for his singing and acting skills.
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.
