Daisy Ridley: Best First Oscars
Daisy Ridley was chosen to take Star Wars into a new awakening. She spent all those moments shooting in secrecy. Then she couldn’t talk about it. Finally she started promoting it. Then we saw it. And we understood. Daisy Ridley as Rey is, yes, she is the future.
Daisy has started working on Episode VIII. She’s also… singing?
We heard her sing during the Force Awakens press tour, briefly, with Oscar Isaac:
The other day JJ Abrams revealed that this weekend “she is going to record a song with an unnamed person, but let’s just say a massive superstar”.
It hasn’t even been a year. It’s basically been three months since Daisy Ridley, end of sentence. And now she’s at her first Oscars and doing it beautifully in Chanel, although, can I say, I don’t love the shoe? And open-toe sparkle underneath a dress that already sparkles is kind of an amateur move. Which is good news for everyone. Because if she gets all of it right and right away, what would we have to look forward to?
