Daisy Ridley's New Vogue Cover Shoot; Talks Star Wars, Superfans, & More!
Actress Daisy Ridley covers the November issue of Vogue Magazine, which features here in a stunning new cover shoot lensed by Mario Testino and styled by by Tonne Goodman. The actress is gearing up for her publicity tour for this Christmas's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a sequel to Star Wars: The Force Awakens which was of course Ridley's breakout film role. The Last Jedi is sure to be the biggest film of 2017 and will undoubtedly cement Daisy as now, a regular fixture in our pop culture zeitgeist.
Inside the issue, Ridley talks perfecting her Star Wars, Fandom, growing up in West London, and of course her light saber skills. Vogue also released a really insightful video interview that you can check out below as well.
Here is an excerpt from the interview where the actress discusses her beloved character Rey's continuing journey from The Force Awakens and now Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.
[Daisy] lets on that we’ll find out more about what has happened to her family, and says it goes from being a physical journey with a friend (Finn, played by John Boyega) to an emotional journey with a stranger (Luke Skywalker, whom she meets on top of a mountainous island at the end of The Force Awakens). “More of a conversation, as opposed to a big adventure,” she suggests. As for the ongoing appeal of Star Wars, she’s not entirely sure where the magic lies—except, she says, that “it’s essentially a family drama that’s played out in this big, expansive world.”

Here is another excerpt from the interview in which Daisy discusses here childhood and family.
Ridley grew up in West London with two older sisters, whom she describes as her “best people.” Even though the three of them fought a lot when they were younger, she idolized them and says they would “protect each other to the absolute death.” Their father, who also has two daughters from a previous marriage, is a photographer—“the coolest cat in all of the land,” in his daughter’s estimation—who used to take pictures for the British rock magazine NME. Her mother works for a bank, and Ridley’s maternal grandparents set up a chain of bookshops.
“I was a little tomboy,” Ridley remembers. “Loud. Often very sassy. Insane amounts of energy. I remember asking, ‘Was I shy?’ And my mum laughing hysterically. She said I used to run into a room and go, ‘Helloooo!’ ”
Along with the photo shoot, Vogue also released an insightful and very cool video interview titled 73 questions with Daisy Ridley. We insist that you enjoy the full interview and photo shoot over at Vogue by clicking here.
