I know I'm not the only one who appreciates when actors, who are new to the Star Wars universe, are so clearly passionate about the film, their character, and the often crazy obsessive fans. Daisy Ridley is a perfect example of that passion which she has brought to each event promoting The Force Awakens this year. Last weekend she announced she was at the Disney Expo in Anaheim by posting her very first photo on Instagram (seen above). I think it's safe to say that everyone stopped what they were doing to go and follow her. And if you haven't yet, you definitely should. Her joyful attitude and bubbly personality is all over that account and there's an insanely cute and hilarious video of her proudly displaying her Rey figurine for Disney Infinity 3.0, which was announced to be coming soon (along with Finn) on Sunday at the convention. Speaking of which, John Boyega said "Finn's rifle is the most powerful weapon in the game." But Daisy quickly replied with "I don’t need the most powerful weapon in the game, because I am a bad a**!".
Ohhh, wow! I can't wait to see this girl in action!
Besides Daisy's obvious passion for The Force Awakens, I have also come to love her style. The majority of her outfits have been simple, with little to no accessories, but very feminine which I think suits her so well. Gotta keep it simple to kick butt if needed, right? Basically, she's pretty much killed it at Star Wars Celebration, San Diego Comic Con, and now the D23 Epxo. It makes me anxious to see what she'll be wearing for the premiere. I also can't wait to hear what she'll have to say about the movie and her characters once it hits theaters on December 18th.
Lastly, here's a couple of videos for you in case you haven't seen them. The first is a short interview where Daisy talks about her experience at the convention and her fellow cast members. The last features J.J. Abrams and some of the cast at the Live Action Panel where they debut the new poster created for the event by Drew Struzan. The poster does contain a spoiler, so I'd suggest not watching the video if you've been trying not to see it.
Tell me, how much do you love Daisy? And what do you think about her style?
