Watch Billie Lourd's impression of Debbie Reynolds weeks before her grandmother's death


One day after the death of her mother, Carrie Fisher, Billie Lourd's grandmother, Debbie Reynolds, died as well.

While the 24-year-old actress is undoubtedly going through a difficult time right now, just a few weeks ago she was in much better spirits, even demonstrating her close bond with Reynolds during a Dec. 12 appearance on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

The actress is receiving an outpouring of love following her mother's death on Tuesday.

"First of all, she gets really upset when I get called 'Carrie Fisher's daughter.' She wants people to call me 'Debbie Reynolds' granddaughter.' It's very offensive to her," Lourd joked to Meyers of her grandmother. "She does not like to be cut out -- not at all. She started it. It's her fault [that I'm an actress.]"

Though Lourd's family has since embraced her following in their acting footsteps, the Scream Queens star explained that Reynolds, who starred in iconic '50s and '60s films like Singin' in the Rain and The Unsinkable Molly Brown, was particularly apprehensive about her getting into acting.

"She called me down to her house and had this binder of these diaries that she had written when she first started doing Singin' in the Rain. She sat me down on her couch and said, 'OK, I need you to read these, dear' -- in her '50s actress voice," Lourd said.

"I started reading them and they're all in second person. They are somewhere along the lines of, 'You're sitting in the makeup chair. It's five in the morning. They've pulled out all your eyebrows and you have no eyelashes left. Your hair is a shell of itself, and all you wanted to be is a gym teacher,'" Lourd shared, imitating her grandmother.

Lourd, of course, decided to pursue acting anyway, and even made her film debut as Lieutenant Connix, opposite her mother's Princess Leia, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Reynolds died on Wednesday after being rushed to the hospital for a possible stroke. Her son, Todd Fisher, told ET that his mother's last words to him were about how much she missed her daughter, who died on Tuesday morning after going into cardiac arrest during a flight from London to Los Angeles last week.

"She missed her daughter and wanted to very much be with her," Todd said. "She had been very strong the last several days. [There was] enormous stress on her, obviously. And this morning she said those words to me and 15 minutes later she had a stroke and virtually left."
