Lourd will also be starring in Olivia Wilde’s directorial debut, Booksmart and will star opposite Kaitlyn Dever and Beanie Feldstein. The premise involves high school graduates trying to jam-pack four years of fun into one crazy night.

Some may not realize that Ryan Murphy is responsible for Lourd’s television debut from her days as Chanel #3 on Fox’s Scream Queens. She then was brought on for the role of Winter for the seventh season of American Horror Story and was last seen acting alongside her mother, the late Carrie Fisher, in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
