    I know this has been discussed here before. Carrie's publicist guy tweeted her name along with Maisie Richardson Sellers the other day.

    However, it really didn't have its own thread yet. I think it may be appropriate to create one now as Latino Review just ran an article claiming she is in the film. They don't say if its via their sources or if they are just getting that from the recent tweet. But now they are saying she is in it:

    This can stay tagged as a rumor thread until the official site confirms it.

    Hey, why not? Especially If it makes Carrie and her daughter happy and Billie does well.

    Lucas got his daughter in the prequals even with dialog (believe he deleted the scene later though [face_tee_hee]) and Jawas where the kids of the production crew, so this isn't a first for the franchise.

    And don't forget the Lucas' son as a padawan who gets shot by clone troopers at the jedi temple.

    Maybe she is Leia and Han's actual daughter but she's an unassuming office clerc somewhere and completely incidental to the plot..
    That could be a thing. Han and Leia have kids but they are ordinaries and the movie isn't about them at all.

    Mark Hamill's oldest son appeared as part of a crowd in a scene in TPM.

    Lucas himself appeared in ROTS as "Baron Papanoida."

    Also wasn't Mark Hamill's son one of the Queens's guards in TPM, he was the one standing outside her door when Anakin comes to talk to her.

    I don't see Billie with anymore than a small cameo, but it would still be really cool to have her onboard.

    She plays Mara Jade so her casting and role is kept very very secret.

    Yep. Obviously she is not Luke's wife in this continuity.
