Actress Daisey Ridley who charmed all in her kickass stellar role as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens is all set to revisit her character in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The actress has slowly risen to be an empowered icon and will be seen performing her own stunts and fighting the dark side in the latest Star Wars film.
When asked about the importance of being a female hero Daisey opens up and says,
“I like that I never questioned being a heroic woman in a film, and that’s thanks to my upbringing. My mom’s always worked; the women I grew up around always worked and were inspirational. Some have a family, some don’t. People just living their lives. So, it’s weird because the way people reacted made me question more than I did. It’s a great role but not just because she’s a woman. That’s how simple it was to me. But others were like this is a big deal, clearly. But it’s exciting to be a part of that. And I’m like, let’s continue. This is how it should be.”
The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson, releasing on 15th December 2017.
