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.”

Daisy Ridley recently teased that her Star Wars character Rey has a confrontation with returning empire baddie Emperor Palpatine in the upcoming trilogy, The Rise of Skywalker, saying it was among her favorites to shoot.

In an interview with USA Today, the actress admitted that she was hesitant at first about how the Senator-turned-Sith Lord’s comeback would weave into the franchise’s newest saga when director JJ Abrams first told her about it.

But once she read the script, her worries disappeared.

“I guess I had all the questions that a lot of other people have,” she told the publication. “And then I was like, ‘OK, this is f***ing awesome.'”

Stars Wars actor John Boyega (Finn) had this similar reaction to the “dope” scene, making sure to come in on his day off just to watch Ridley shoot it.

“I was just like, ‘I can’t wait to see that onscreen.’ He’s definitely a formidable challenge for Rey and everything that’s going down with her,” he said. “He’s scary. But it’s so, so cool.”

Daisy Ridley has confirmed that the Rey and Kylo Ren fan shipped romance will be addressed in “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker“.

Daisy was asked recently about the ambiguous relationship between her character Rey, the heroic rebel and Adam Driver‘s character, the villainous First Order leader, Kylo Ren. She had the following to say about the fan theories, giving a sort of confirmation. Considering the romantic fan art and fiction that’s out there.

“It does not bother me, people writing theories,” Ridley said. “It’s really fun hearing them. Plus, because I know what’s sort of going to happen, I think it’ll be really interesting to see people’s reaction to [the final film]. Obviously, there’s this whole Reylo thing and some people are very passionate about it, some aren’t.”

Ridley hinted that the seemingly romantic connection isn’t left unaddressed by director J.J. Abrams in The Rise of Skywalker.

“J.J. does deal with [it],” she added. “It’s a very complex issue. People talk about toxic relationships and whatever it is. It’s no joke and I think it’s dealt with really well because it’s not skimmed over.”

We’ll find out when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is released Dec. 20th, 2019.
