Daisy Ridley Quotes
I auditioned for this agency. I got an advertisement first, and then something else, which I got fired from. It was soul-destroying.

I was just like, 'Okay, I'm Rey, just trying to do me, just trying to do this scene, trying to do the right thing,' and I think that was a huge advantage because I think if not, it would've been a very different thing.
So many people look up to Jennifer Lawrence playing Katniss in 'The Hunger Games.' For them to look up to Rey and what she represents would be fantastic. She's a wonderful character... The reason I love her so much is she does all the fun stuff. She fights, runs and protects herself and has an incredible emotional story.
