It should go without saying, but it’s been an intense year for Billie Lourd. At the tail end of 2016, she suffered from two devastating losses — her mother, Carrie Fisher, and her grandmother, Debbie Reynolds. And while the young actress has been incredibly inspiring about honoring these two legendary women, she recently opened up about how she’d personally move forward.

Lourd, known best for her role in Scream Queens (and the earmuffs her character wore — which was actually a secret tribute to Fisher’s Princess Leia) has quite a career in front of her at the young age of just 25. She’s already been announced as being cast in the next season of American Horror Story.

Lourd talked about how she felt about life moving forward for Town & Country’s September issue, and it seems like she’s set on focusing on her own path — while, of course, paying tribute to the legacy that her mom and grandmother left behind.

She also made sure to note that as far as their legacy is concerned, she now has to “uphold that and make it evolve” in her own way.

While it seems like a pretty daunting task, we think she’ll have no problem standing out, aside from her famous family.

We know that no matter what, her mom and grandmother would be so proud of how far she’s come. We definitely are.
