In the two weeks since the sudden deaths of her mother Carrie Fisher and grandmother Debbie Reynolds, Billie Lourd has received an outpouring of support from her Scream Queens castmates – including Taylor Lautner.

The pair were spotted out in Los Angeles together on Monday, with a source telling PEOPLE of Lautner, “He’s a great guy and has really been there for Billie.”

Lautner has been with Lourd every step of the way during this difficult time, and even joined her at the hospital while her mother, Fisher, was treated after suffering cardiac arrest aboard a flight from London on Dec. 23. Fisher died at age 60 on Dec. 27. Reynolds died the following day at age 84 from an intracerebral hemorrhage.

Last week, the actor, 24, took to social media to share well-wishes for Lourd, writing, “This girl is one of the strongest, most fearless individuals I’ve ever met. Absolutely beautiful inside and out. I’m lucky to know you.”

He isn’t the only Scream Queens star to share their love for Lourd, 24. “Holding my dear friend billie, and her sweet mommy Carrie in my heart right now,” Lea Michele wrote.

Lourd, herself, took to social media to thank friends and fans for their support, writing last week, “Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist. There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me.”
