Billie Lourd always has her mother Carrie Fisher in mind.

The 29-year-old paid tribute to her late mum following the fifth anniversary of Fisher's death in December last year.

Taking to Instagram, Lourd shared a stunning acoustic cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Landslide' in honour of the Star Wars icon.

The actress was joined by her Booksmart co-star Kaitlyn Dever and her sister Mady Dever, who played the guitar and sang backup for the bathroom jam session.

Alongside the video she wrote: "It has been five years since my Momby died (I don't like to say lost - it makes it sound like I could find her like I find my car in a parking lot when I don't remember where I parked it. I always find my car - I can’t find my Mom).

"We loved to sing. We loved Fleetwood Mac. We loved this song. It echoed in our living room throughout my childhood, playing slightly too loudly as she scribbled her marvellous manic musings on yellow legal pads."

She continued: "I'm working away from home right now. One night when I was having a particularly grief-y moment this song came on and the lyrics spoke (well actually sang) to me more than they ever had before.

"I didn’t know who to be or what to do after my mom died. I was afraid of changing because I had built my life around her. Then she was gone. And I had to rebuild my life without her. And it wasn’t, and still isn’t, easy. But time has made me bolder."

"I never stop missing her but I have gotten stronger with each passing year. And if you’re going through something similar time will make you bolder too. Sorry for this cheesy lyric analysis. But it’s true!"

Fisher passed away at 60 years old on December 27, 2016, of cardiac arrest after becoming unresponsive on a flight.

The following day her mother Debbie Reynolds died of a stroke.
