Star Wars: The Force Awakens is coming to the big screen very soon and rising star Daisy Ridley is gearing up to enter the world of fame by creating a name for herself with JJ Abrams.
Daisy recollects the time she met Han Solo aka Harrison Ford and the time they had coffee!
When she was asked about her first encounter with the veteran superstar Daisy said,
When I first met Harrison, we just sat down for a coffee together. He was talking about his experience in the whole thing, not just Han Solo, but the “Star Wars” saga. Then we all had dinner together, which was great.
The actress continues to shower effusive praise on the director JJ Abrams, who helped her immensely despite the pressure of an ensemble cast and Star Wars expectations.
J.J. is amazing. I’ve never really been on a film set before, and everyone adores him. He’s very kind, very generous. He was so great at the beginning because I was so nervous. He’s so patient, which is really important for me because I spent a lot of time going, I can’t do this. He made sure everyone on set was feeling great. There’s no one not worthy of a hello and a thank you. There have been so many moments when he’s gotten on the mic and told everyone that the work they’re doing is incredible, which it is. They’re getting that warmth from him that is needed. In such a big film personal relationships can be lost. But, because he is who he is, they’re not at all. Everyone feels praise. Everyone feels loved. Everyone feels appreciated. That is so important. He’s created this incredible world, and in the real world he’s this incredible man as well.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is all set to release in India on December 25, 2015!
