Star Wars actress, Daisy Ridley has admitted that she wasn’t too impressed with her acting skills in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The 25-year-old actress made her debut as the orphan Rey in the seventh film in the sci-fi franchise.
In the December issue of Elle, she admits she was disappointed when she watched it back.
‘I didn’t think I was good in the first film, and I was struggling with that. I did the first one because I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into and I was having loads of fun, and suddenly I’m realising what this actually is.’ she explained.
‘I realised I can’t f***ing do this. I’m highly dramatic.’
Speaking about Carrie Fisher, who died in December 2016, she explains she helped boost her confidence with an onset pep talk about fame, adding:
‘And that was wonderful. At work, you’re normal, you’re not the anomaly, unlike in other situations.’
As for another original cast member, Harrison Ford, Daisy admits he very much reminded her of her father.
‘They both have an earring and are f**king awesome.’
The actress also reveals she has been fighting a secret health battle with endometriosis. She explains:
‘I was in my flat going nuts, and then my skin got really bad in the stress of it all, and I hadn’t been well – I had holes in my gut wall and stuff – and we were trying to figure out what to do with that because I’d felt poorly.’
