Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley has teamed up with UK scribe Elinor Cook, a writer on season 3 of Killing Eve, on Audible Original drama Islanders, about a reality TV contestant.

The Audible Emerging Playwright commission tells the story of a young woman, performed by Ridley, who has always felt invisible. When she becomes a contestant on a televised dating show, she’s thrust into a manufactured paradise. To remain in the game, she tries on different personas and partners. But as the days – or weeks – pass and the lines between truth and fiction blur, she must confront her long-held anxieties about identity and the desire to be seen…all while the cameras are rolling.

Ridley has been recording the standalone audio drama from her home in London. It will be released on September 10.

The actress said: “I really enjoyed performing Elinor Cook’s Islanders. Coming from a group working environment, it’s very rare to have to perform a piece, uninterrupted, but I found the creative process to be challenging and rewarding in equal measure. Elinor’s writing is beautiful, and she manages to convey incredible depth, even through the facade of a constructed reality TV show. I feel really lucky I was able to explore this piece with Elinor and the Audible team.”

Cook was the winner of the George Devine Award 2013 for Most Promising Playwright. Her TV credits also include Working Title and BBC’s drama The Secrets with Olivia Colman. She is currently contributing to shows for Kudos and See-Saw and developing adaptations and originals with Drama Republic, Raw and Sister Pictures. Her plays and adaptations have been performed at the Donmar Warehouse, Bush Theater and Edinburgh Fringe Festival, among others.

In-demand Brit actress Ridley has big-budget Lionsgate pic Chaos Walking due for release early next year. Among projects in development are STX thriller The Ice Beneath Her. 2019 epic Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker was the third-highest-grossing movie in the storied sci-fi franchise.

Daisy Ridley is in a piece of fan art, it imagines her donning Jessica Drew’s (Spider-Woman) red and yellow spandex. As for a Spider-Woman movie, there is only speculation at this time about there being one. Check out the fan art below.

The Origin of Spider-Woman…

“Originating in 1977 as a distaff counterpart to Spider-Man, Spider-Woman’s initial creation was to circumvent potential copyright issues, similar to what led to the creation of She-Hulk and the death of Captain America. Although her appearance was only intended to establish the character within Marvel’s remit to prevent anyone else from using the name, her unexpected popularity led to her receiving her own ongoing title that included occult magic and Arthurian legend, drafting in the magic-wielding immortal Morgan le Fay as an enemy”.

The Skills Daisy Has To Be Spider-Woman…

  • Has the ability to convincingly act both physically capable and emotionally vulnerable, (loneliness, social awkwardness, and feelings of isolation).
  • Daisy‘s natural accent could be used, seeing as the character Spider-Woman’s comic origin has her growing up in England.

While it’s not official on if we’ll be getting a Spider-Woman movie, we can continue to imagine Daisy Ridley in the role, for as long as we may have to wait.

Daisy Ridley has definitely grown. Right before “Force Awakens” opened, the then-unknown English actress was wowed by her face on a yogurt cup. Now, Ridley, also 27, is a full-on celebrity who’s boarded big-time fare like “Murder on the Orient Express” and even played a Shakespearean heroine in “Ophelia.”

Ridley who once had stars in her eyes is now a legit Hollywood star, departing the “Star Wars” galaxy for new and uncharted waters.

Daisy says, she “felt a bit more like, ‘Ehhh, why is it me? Maybe you made a mistake.’ Now I have sort of half-convinced myself in believing that it’s all good and that I was chosen for a reason, so I feel more confident in myself. And I feel just a bit more confident in navigating the whole world.”

Rise of Skywalker” director J.J. Abrams, who introduced Ridley’s Jedi-in-training Rey in “Force Awakens,” says she and Boyega are “so damn good.” When Abrams looks back on that film, he remembers Ridley “was a baby” but also “limitless in her ability.” And in “Rise of Skywalker,” he adds, “it’s a very complicated emotional story for her. She’s got to do some real stuff and I knew she would be able to. Watching her in this movie blows my mind.”

In “Force Awakens” and 2017’s “The Last Jedi,” Rey’s “just been doing a lot of what other people said she should be doing,” Ridley says. “So this film is really her figuring stuff out for herself.”

Fans are still curious about Rey’s backstory and her parentage, even after archfoe Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) told her in “Last Jedi” that her mom and dad were nobody junk traders. “The thing that I’ve always said is I, Daisy, believe what Kylo said,” Ridley says. “Rey perhaps doesn’t believe that. So that was something I sort of had to get my head around because I was like, ‘I guess Rey cares as much as the audience does.’

“It was also that thing of why can’t she just be powerful,” outside of any familial connections, Ridley adds. “This story does an amazing amount of justice.”

Star Wars” for Ridley will always be that combination of awesome action and massive emotion, and as a performer, “it was like this insane opportunity that led me to an amazing group of people, an amazing role and an amazing experience.”

Her IMDb page continues to build, with a role next year in the family film “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” (August 7) and after in the sci-fi movie “Chaos Walking” (2021), as well as teaming with Abrams again for a biopic on World War II spy Virginia Hall. Unlike when she was a fresh-faced galactic rookie, Ridley says, “I feel a bit more understanding of the whole process of making a film, selling a film, all of that stuff, which is to someone who hasn’t done that before a very strange thing.”
