Star Wars has had a history of making little-know actors household names almost overnight, and the latest installment in the saga was no different. Within just a few short years Daisy Ridley went from being virtually unknown to one of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Her outstanding performance as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens quickly propelled her to superstardom last December, and understandably life has changed massively for Ridley since then. She recently spoke with Breaking News about adjusting to her Star Wars fame. Here's what she had to say:
“It’s different now because people have seen me in a film but people don’t tend to recognise me that much because I don’t tend to look like this and I’m filming a film which is what I was doing before anyway, everyone really freaked me out but really it’s fine."
Additionally she mentioned some advice she received from co-star Simon Pegg(Unkar Plutt):
“Simon Pegg said, in the wise words of Han Solo, “here’s where the fun begins” and he just said “enjoy it”, it’s nice because even the days when people recognise you it’s for a good reason."
“It doesn’t feel that different, they are both Star Wars fans and kind of nerds and both warm and funny. They are obviously different in their whole lives but both really kind and you see that in the crew and once again I feel very warm and welcomed into a crew.”
Daisy will return as Rey alongside Mark Hamill(Luke Skywalker), John Boyega(Finn), Oscar Isaac(Poe Dameron), Carrie Fisher(Leia Organa) and others in Star Wars: Episode VIII, opening in theaters December 15th, 2017!
