Daisy Ridley
Scroll down for movie list.
Ridley began her career with minor roles in the television show, Youngers (2013), Toast of London (2012), Silent Witness (1996), Mr Selfridge (2013) and Casualty (1986). She also appeared in the short film Blue Season (2013), which was entered into the Sci-Fi-London 48-Hour Film Challenge. Ridley played the lead in film three of Lifesaver, an interactive film which was nominated for a BAFTA Award. She has also appeared in the music video for Wiley's song, "Lights On".

In April 2014, Ridley's casting as "Rey", one of the lead characters in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), was announced. She was chosen for the film in February 2014. Her choice by director J.J. Abrams was seen as a repeat of George Lucas' move of casting relatively unknown actors for the lead roles in the first Star Wars film in 1977. At the time of her casting she was, according to Rolling Stone, a "total unknown". In October 2015, Ridley appeared at the launch of a set of Star Wars postage stamps issued by the UK postal service Royal Mail, with Ridley's character Rey featuring on a stamp along with the droid BB-8. With international revenues of over $2 billion, The Force Awakens was a major box-office hit and the highest-grossing film of 2015. After an early screening of the film, Brian Viner of the Daily Mail called Ridley the "real star of the show", adding that her performance as Rey should "send her career into orbit". Her performance received critical acclaim, with Richard Roeper describing her portrayal as "a breakout performance".

Ridley voiced the lead role of Taeko in the English dub of the animated film Only Yesterday (1991), released on 1 January 2016 in New York City and scheduled for release throughout the US on 26 February. She will also continue her role as Rey in Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017), which is scheduled to be released in December 2017.
