Actress Billie Lourd, daughter of the late Carrie Fisher, channeled her inner Princess Leia on Friday as she took the mound for the first pitch for Los Angeles Dodgers game.

Lourd, whose mother died in 2016, drew a white Dodgers jersey and turned her hair into buns on the top of her head — like her mother wore in her iconic “Star Wars” role — if they are the traditional throw, according to the E-News.

She was there because the Dodgers were holding “Star Wars Night” at Dodger Stadium for their game against the San Francisco Giants.

After her pitch, Lourd took to social media, sharing photos of the event, including some of himself on the field. There was also a close-up of her hair and a number of other characters from the blockbuster movies. One showed her standing at the Dodger players, with the name “Connix” stitched on the back of her sweater.

The name reflects that of her own character in the “Star Wars” cinematic universe, Kaydel Ko Connix, E! News reported.
