Daisy Ridley –  Glamour

Daisy Ridley appears on the cover of  the January edition  of British Glamour and gives a fairly comprehensive interview inside.


You will have to buy the magazine which is on sale in early December to get the full interview but here are some of the more interesting quotes:


On 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.”


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.”


“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!”


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.”
