Los Angeles, Dec 10 (IANS) Actress Daisy Ridley says she is really working on liking herself, and helps being in a safe working environment.
Ridley found fame when she joined the “Star War” universe as Rey in 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. She reprised her role in Rian Johnson’s 2017 sequel “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and JJ Abrams’ upcoming “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” — the conclusion to the Skywalker saga.
“I would say I haven’t played the hero because I think that ‘Star Wars’ is a group of heroes all working together. But in terms of being part of that (phenomenon), it makes the world smaller in a way, being in something that unites people is easy access to entering a space,” variety.com quoted Ridley as saying.
“And especially when we’re promoting the film, you go to different countries, and everyone has a similar reaction, a similar expectation. It makes everything more accessible,” she added.
How has it changed your sense of yourself?
“I really am working on liking myself and feeling like I am where I need to be. And it has been helped by working with people that made me feel good and in a really safe working environment. So I feel like I can do my best work and work with a group of people that I really love,” she said.
Ridley is a big movie star, but she says she just wants to be “a working actor”.
“I currently am unemployed, so I’m not succeeding right now. But I just want to be in good things and work with great people,” she said.
