Almost six months have passed since the tragic, sudden deaths of Carrie Fisher and her equally-talented mother, actress Debbie Reynolds. As we continue to miss the two, it is hard to imagine how #BillieLourd feels as she lost her mother and grandmother over the course of two dreadful days.
The 24-year-old actress has been lying low since the events, but seems to have found a support system in the form of a relationship with actor #TaylorLautner.
Lourd and Lautner played love interests in the second season of Scream Queens, and that romance continued off-screen as they began dating in real life shortly after the show ended. Lautner stayed by her side after the deaths of Fisher and Reynolds, and their relationship has seemingly grown stronger. Prior to losing her mom and grandmother, Lourd had a pretty epic social media presence, but has since slowed down, which is completely understandable. When she isn't dedicating posts to her beloved family, she is spending time with Lautner, who also enjoys posting about the time they share together.
Looking at the caption above, there is no doubt that Lourd and the Fisher family are lucky to have Lautner by their side. Lourd's uncle, Todd Fisher, has praised the support, commenting about Lautner to E! News:
"As any uncle, you're suspicious of the guy hanging around your niece. 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 s--t what his background is.
"The truth of the matter is, the guy is pretty spectacular. 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!"
Fingers crossed that it is a lasting relationship. Lourd will be joining another one of Ryan Murphy's projects, as she has been cast in the upcoming season of American Horror Story. Ryan Murphy has a habit of using cast members from across his shows, so here's hoping Lourd and Lautner have a chance of reuniting on the small screen!
