Daisy Ridley Reveals She Hasn't Gone On A Lot of Auditions After 'Star Wars'

Daisy Ridley is sharing some surprising news.

During a new interview, the 28-year-old actress revealed that she wasn’t going on a lot of auditions after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hit theaters.

“It was so sad to finish [Star Wars],” Daisy shared with Entertainment Weekly. “When the film was released, I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ It was such a huge chapter. And, weirdly, the past few months of not having much… Obviously now it’s really nice to be working, but not having much [at the time] I feel like I processed the last five years. To be forced to slow down, it was good mentally for me because [Star Wars was] a big thing in my life.”

“Weirdly, at the beginning of the year nothing was coming through,” Daisy continued. “I was like, ‘Aww! No one wants to employ me.’”

Daisy also mentioned that “there were actually loads of things that I auditioned for at the beginning of the year and didn’t get any of them.”

By the end of February and into early March, Daisy said “things started picking up” and she got the role of voicing a character in the time-loop video game Twelve Minutes.
