Daisy Ridley attended the West End press night of the Kinky Boots musical, in London, last night. Cyndi Lauper pulled-out all the stops for the opening night and pulled out her ’80s hey-day in cleavage-enhancing red punkish dress .

Kinky Boots the musical was adapted by Harvey Fierstein for Broadway in 2013 from the 2005 Brit comedy of the same name, starring 12 Year’s A Slave’s, Chiwetel Ejiofor.

The Daily Mail gave the show – 4/5 stars!

Savour that sole. Broadway import Kinky Boots is a cheerily over-the-top musical about, er, the footwear industry in Northampton. Throw in a chorus line – I almost said second row – of statuesque drag queens, some of whom do stage acrobatics in three-inch high heels. I swear the Adelphi’s foundations shuddered. The way these ‘ladies’ cavort and roll their eyes and waggle their sixpack-tummied booty, this show is all about tongues – and in a way that would make a shires cobbler thwack his thumb in astonishment.

Daisy Ridley looked gorgeous as she was snapped leaving Global Radio headquarters in London on yesterday morning. The 23-year-old Brit was rocking an incredibly chic-yet-muted navy ensemble comprising of a furry coat with a sexy floating mini dress – which flaunted her slender legs to perfection.

The diversity of the cast in Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been a hot topic on the Internet, bringing to the surface some ugly racism present in the fan community. One aspect of the film in particular that attracted nasty comments was the casting of John Boyega as a stormtrooper, a controversy Boyega did not shy away from in a recent interview alongside costar Daisy Ridley.

From the very first trailers it was apparent that Boyega plays a prominent role in the film. His character Finn starts out as a stormtrooper but undergoes an “epic journey” that lands him on the side of the good guys. Ridley plays the seemingly humble role of Rey, a “scavenger in a ship graveyard” on the desert planet Jakku.

Speaking to EW, both actors talked about the depth to their characters and how they’re not just stereotypes but three-dimensional and nuanced. Boyega touched on the subject and backlash to Finn, and was confident about the role that Star Wars: The Force Awakens could play in the new landscape of cinema.

“We see through the eyes of children that they’re not talking about race the way we grown folks are. They’re not talking about color or how much melanin is in someone’s skin. That should teach us something… We’ve been having a continuous struggle with idiots, and now we should just force them to understand – and I love the way I just used Force there, by the way – just force people to see this is the new world. There are loads of people of different shades and backgrounds. Get used to it.”

Boyega, who in the past has dismissed critics of his role in the film, also spoke about Finn’s character arc – which promises to be very interesting since the leap from stormtrooper to a member of the Resistance is pretty substantial.

“It’s about looking for a greater purpose, rather than thinking ‘this is the only thing I can do.’ He wants to change. He wants to make a difference. He’s trying to find some kind of moral dignity in this war.”

Ridley was equally enthusiastic about Rey and spoke about her fierce independence:

“There was no one really guiding her. She’s never sat around a table and had a meal with someone else. She has a boss, she has someone to answer to, she has to trade the junk for food, and that’s how it has to be. She works to feed herself, and she goes to sleep, and she gets up again. It is a sad life.”

According to Ridley, she and Boyega knew what they would be getting into ahead of time in playing Star Wars characters who were not white men.

“John and I had a conversation last year and we both knew that was how it was going to be. He was going to be the black guy and I was going to be the girl. I think neither of those things could ever be a bad thing.”

That The Force Awakens has generated any controversy simply by having more diverse lead roles than in past films is an unfortunate reminder of the worst that the Internet commentariat has to offer. For Ridley, though, the hope is that everyone will find something to like in her character. “My main thing is that people connect with her, regardless of gender, color, age.”

With talented and enthusiastic actors such as Boyega and Ridley on board, hopefully critics and audiences will find their characters as interesting and engaging as the actors do.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 18th, 2015, followed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16th, 2016, Star Wars: Episode VIII on May 26th, 2017, and the Han Solo Star Wars Anthology film on May 25th, 2018. Star Wars: Episode IX is expected to reach theaters in 2019, followed by the third Star Wars Anthology film in 2020.

With the arrival of Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley is about to go from unknown to intergalactic icon. Writer (and fanboy) Seth Plattner meets the new girl on fire for ELLE’s December issue cover story, on newsstands nationwide November 17.

British actress Daisy Ridley is only 23, but the maelstrom that is building around her is nearly 40 years in the making. On December 18, Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens will hit planet Earth, heralding the most anticipated sequel since the New Testament. Landing a role in the long-awaited new installment in the epic about that galaxy far, far away would be a game changer for any actress. This is Star Wars, after all—the more than $4.5 billion–grossing, six-film saga that has perhaps the cultiest following in the history of all that is geeky and cinematic (in a 2001 worldwide census, 500,000 people listed “Jedi Knight” as their official religion).

But for Ridley, The Force Awakens is not only her first multizillion-dollar tentpole studio extravaganza: It’s her first movie. Ever. And with due respect to Princess Leia and Queen Amidala, this is no damsel role, nor is it that of supportive sidekick to the guys who are really driving the Millennium Falcon. If the rampant fan speculation on the hundreds of Reddit, StarWars.com, and TheForce.net message boards—along with the whispers out of Hollywood—is true, Ridley’s character, Rey, will be the first female protagonist in the series’ four-decade history.

Here, in an excerpt from ELLE’s December cover story, four reasons Daisy Ridley is ready to take on Rey:

1. SHE’S DONE THE PREP.
The diet—”lots of fish, legumes, and spirulina shakes,” Ridley says—and three months of grueling training: five hours a day, five days a week at the gym plus stunt practice at London’s Pinewood studios. “It became my solace,” she says of a fitness schedule she’s largely maintained in order to stay in Rey shape for reshoots, as well as the next, soon-to-film sequel in the series. “Because it’s the only thing structured in my life right now. Training is sort of a therapy session, I guess.”

2. SHE CAN KEEP A SECRET.
“I couldn’t tell any of my friends,” she continues. “I told my mum and my sisters— then my sister told her boyfriend, and my mum told her friend. I was like, ‘Great, guys—you are great.'”

3. SHE’S PREPARED TO DIE FOR THE PART.
“We were told about this scorpion in Abu Dhabi that, if it stabbed you, you needed treatment within half an hour,” Ridley recalls with a laugh. “There was this bit where I was lying in the sand, and if a scorpion got me, the nearest hospital was an hour away. So I was like, I could die right now. I could be dead in half an hour.” Knowing that, she still stayed there for as long as the scene took, displaying a grit that will come in handy when, as [Harrison] Ford puts it, “the whole world’s coming at her.”

4. SHE’S READY TO BE A NEW KIND OF ROLE MODEL.
“[Rey is] so strong. She’s cool and smart and she can look after herself. Young girls can look at her and know that they can wear trousers if they want to,” Ridley promises. “That they don’t have to show off their bodies.”

To find how Ridley got the part, what it was really like behind-the-scenes, and why J.J. Abrams knew Daisy could be “the face of the new Star Wars,” pick up the December issue of ELLE, on newsstands nationwide November 17.
