Daisy Ridley covers the December 2017 issue of ELLE UK Magazine photographed by Liz Collins and styled by Anne-Marie Curtis.
On How The Late Carrie Fisher Advised Her To Not Shrink Away From Success, But To Enjoy It: “And that was wonderful. At work, you’re normal, you’re not the anomaly, unlike in other situations.”
On Finding Filming For The Last Jedi To Be Much More Pressure Than The first Star Wars Movie: “I didn’t think I was good in the first film, and I was struggling with that.”
On How Having Fewer Scenes With Co-Star John Boyega In The Second Star Wars Briefly Stressed Her Out: It’s not this big adventure that I’m on with John [unlike the first movie]. I was thinking I did the first one because I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into and I was having loads of fun, and suddenly I’m realising what this actually is, and I can’t fucking do this. I’m highly dramatic – so it’s all ‘oh my God’…finally I was like ‘Oh yeah, this is working.'”
On Meeting Barbara Streisand And Featuring In Her 2016 Album ‘Encore’: “I went to her house and we talked about [psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Carl] Jung because my dad loves Jung, and we were talking about dreams, and I left and got super emotional, not because she’s famous, but because she’s amazing. Part of her reputation comes from being a woman. If it was a man being ‘controlling’ about his career, people would just say he knows what he wants.”
