For any actor, male or female to be cast in the Star Wars movie, they deserve to be applauded because it means they are greatly skilled. Many of us did not know who Daisy Ridley was until we saw her on our screens as “Rey” in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). It’s amazing to know that before casting in one of 2015’s biggest films, Daisy only had to her name minor TV roles and appearances in short films.
Date of Birth: April 10, 1992
Zodiac Sign: Aries
George Lucas the father of the Star Wars trilogy was known to cast unpopular actors to play the lead roles. Following Lucas’s steps, J.J. Abrams also felt Ridley was the best “unknown” actress to play this role and this she did with all the skill in her. The media referred to the British Ridley as the “real star of the movie” and this breakout character as Rey has opened the door to several other big opportunities. She would be a more frequent face on TV now, thanks to Star Wars. Read on to find more about Daisy Ridley’s personal life…

Year of Birth: 1950s
The Fawkner-Corbett’s family were one of the top social families involved in the British real estate.

The overnight star Daisy revealed that she was naughty as a child and her mother thought she could get better if she was kept busy. This was what inspired her enrolment at the Tring Park School that specialises in music, musical theatre and drama. Louise herself holds a senior position as a publicist at the Barclays Bank.
