We have added x276 screencaps of Daisy from the behind the scenes photoshoot and interview video with UK’s GLAMOUR magazine…
Daisy Ridley is GLAMOUR magazine’s brand new cover star – and we think you’ll agree, she looks fierce on the front cover. The 23-year-old star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens up about her first day jitters, the Disney ‘machine’, and what she thinks about people getting tattoos – of her face!
Daisy on… her first-day-of-filming nerves:
“I was petrified. I thought I was gonna have a panic attack on the first day. JJ [Abrams] … he probably doesn’t remember telling me that my performance was wooden. This was my first day! And I honestly wanted to die. I thought I was gonna cry, I couldn’t breathe.”
Daisy on… the anticipation surrounding the film:
“It’s so nice that people are so excited about it. But people are getting tattoos! Of my face! Already! And I’m like; you don’t even know what Rey is in the story. It seems insane to me.”
Daisy on… the final edit, and whether she’ll watch it:
“I haven’t seen the film yet – I kinda want to, and I kinda don’t – Steven Spielberg’s seen it three times, as he told me when I met him!”
Daisy on… whether the Disney ‘machine’ have her firmly in control:
“My experience has been incredible, I’ve felt supported and respected the whole way through. I’ve not been told not to do anything. My Instagram has not been…what’s it called when they keep tabs on it? Yeah, it’s not monitored.”
Daisy, who has appeared in Mr Selfridge, Silent Witness and Casualty, plays “a scavenger in a ship graveyard” who fights off evil forces. She’s also rumoured to be the daughter of key characters Han Solo and Princess Leia.
