Carrie Fisher Remembered By Her Family on Her Birthday

Carrie Fisher‘s daughter Billie and brother Todd are celebrating her first birthday since her passing last year.

The late Star Wars actress, who would have turned 61 on Saturday (October 21), is being remembered by her family with a moment of reflection.

“You can be sure that Billie and I will have a moment in reflection on Carrie‘s day,” Todd told E! News.

He added, “Certainly we are all still dealing with the difference of life here. It’s a substantial change in the planet when you remove Carrie and Debbie from it. It’s a huge vacuum that nobody could ever fill so you move on and you try to live your life without that presence, which, we will because we are survivors—and we were trained by Debbie.”

“I think [Billie is] doing very well. She is dealing with it remarkably. I think she’ll make a great role model in her time as well, having grown up around two amazing women. I think she is going to reflect that in her future,” Todd concluded.

Billie Lourd's Family Says Taylor Lautner is 'Like a Husband'

Taylor Lautner was a big support system for Billie Lourd in the wake of her mother, Carrie Fisher‘s, death late last year.

The 24-year-old Scream Queens actress’ uncle Todd Fisher had nothing but nice things to say about her relationship with Taylor.

“As any uncle, you’re suspicious of the guy hanging around your niece,” Todd Fisher told E! News. “She’s cute and all that. She’s had other boyfriends, good boyfriends, but I’m certainly going to give that guy the extra look-over. I don’t give a sh-t what his background is.”

“The truth of the matter is, the guy is pretty spectacular,” he said about Taylor. “He’s a really deep person, and he has supported her amazingly. He’s stepped up and acted like a husband would act. Not that that’s what’s going on, but it’s just an amazing support system for her, and I’m glad he’s in her life. That’s not easy for me to say, if you think about it!”

Carrie Fisher Will Not Appear in 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

Carrie Fisher will not appear in Star Wars: Episode IX, despite her brother Todd‘s recent claim.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy made the unfortunate announcement during an interview with ABC News, explaining that Todd was “confused.”

“Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine. But we will see a lot of Carrie in eight,” Kathleen said.

Todd previously said that he had given Disney permission to use recent footage of Carrie for the ninth film, but it looks like this is not the case.

Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to hit theater May 23, 2019.

There’s a Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds museum in the works!

Carrie‘s brother Todd recently explained that he is working on a space to honor his late sister and mother’s legacy.

“There are a lot of things that we have of Carrie’s that we’re going to put on display in the new museum with Debbie and Carrie,” he told People.

Todd added that he even plans to recreate Carrie‘s writing room.

“So we are going to rebuild Carrie’s writing room, and we’re actually going to put out her writings, long hand. Carrie did not use a computer. So we’re going to show people the process that she used to create….We’ll have a lot of her things, original things, so people can see how she worked,” he explained.

Todd also said that the museum will contain costumes and other memorabilia that “people don’t necessarily associate” with Carrie.

Carrie Fisher Will Reportedly Appear 'Star Wars: Episode IX'

Carrie Fisher will make an appearance in Star Wars: Episode IX, according to Confidential.

The late actress’ brother Todd and her daughter Billie Lourd have given Disney permission to use recent footage of Carrie for the ninth film.

“Both of us were like, ‘Yes, how do you take her out of it?’ And the answer is you don’t,” Todd told the publication.

He added, “She’s as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan — when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that’s what’s happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue.”

Although Todd was not sure how Carrie would appear in the film, it is understood that they will not be using CGI.

Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to hit theater May 23, 2019.

Todd Fisher Speaks at Carrie & Debbie's Memorial Service, Billie Lourd Decides Not to Attend

Todd Fisher speaks on stage during the memorial service for his mom Debbie Reynolds and sister Carrie Fisher on Saturday afternoon (March 25) at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Carrie‘s daughter Billie Lourd decided not to attend the public event, members of the press in attendance tweeted moments before the service started.

Todd spoke about his mom’s heartbreak after Carrie passed away and how she asked for permission to leave this world.

“When Carrie died, my mother decided to change her plans a bit. My mother always said to me, ‘I never want to go to my daughter’s funeral service. I would like to be buried with Carrie.’ I didn’t know she was going to leave us that very next day and when she looked at me to ask permission to leave, she said she wanted to be with Carrie, and she closed her eyes and went to sleep. It was a beautiful exit,” Todd said.

Todd encouraged fans in attendance to visit Debbie and Carrie at their final resting place at the cemetery and he also told the story about how he picked the plots.

Todd Fisher Says Debbie Reynolds 'Asked For Permission' to Be With Carrie

Todd Fisher is recounting his final moments with his mom Debbie Reynolds, following the untimely passing of his sister Carrie.

The 58-year-old filmmaker told ET that after Carrie‘s death, Debbie began to run him through her own estate and made major changes about where and how she wanted to be buried.

“My mother said to me the night that Carrie died…we were talking that night and I didn’t know what was happening, but she was setting me up for her leaving the planet…My mother said, ‘I know that’s tough. It might be tougher even, you know…I don’t know for sure when I [will] go,’” Todd explained.

He added, “I was like, ‘Well, look, fortunately we don’t have to face that right now, you know, we just face this. But then she was like asking my permission [to go]…The next morning, we had a little further dialogue and she chose to leave the planet in front of my face two feet away…She literally looked at me and said, ‘I want to go be with Carrie‘ and closed her eyes and went to sleep.”

Debbie and Carrie‘s public memorial service is set to take place on March 25th at 1 PM PST and will be live-streamed on DebbieReynolds.com.
