Who is Daisy Ridley? Meet Rey from 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Daisy Ridley is the new leading lady in the Star Wars franchise and since The Force Awakens hits theaters tonight (December 17), lets take a moment to get to know her!

The 23-year-old English actress plays the role of Rey and this just so happens to be her first movie role. The character hails from the planet Jakku and she has been described as a scavenger who gets to travel around with the new droid, BB-8.

“I think Rey is a great character for people to see and perhaps relate to her, and see something in her that they feel and connect with the story — that, I just think, is amazing,” Daisy told EW about the character.

“Young girls can look at her and know that they can wear trousers if they want to,” Daisy told Elle. “That they don’t have to show off their bodies.”

British audiences might recognize Daisy from her roles in the television programs Mr. Selfridge, Youngers, or Silent Waitress. She also appeared in the music video for Wiley‘s “Lights On.”

We love that Daisy will be a role model for young kids growing up today! See some of her super stylish appearances on the red carpet and stills of her in the movie in the photo gallery.
