"What we've seen of Rey, she looks like she can handle her stuff. So most of the comments I get are from parents who say how wonderful it is that their little girls can see this character."
―Daisy Ridley[src]

Daisy Ridley (born April 10, 1992) is a British actress who stars in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens[3] and Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi[4] as the character Rey.[8] Her involvement was first announced on April 29, 2014.[3] Ridley also voiced her character in the video games Disney Infinity 3.0[6] and LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens.[7]

Prior to her casting in Episode VII, Ridley was relatively unknown, only making small appearances in British television shows, such as Casualty, Youngers, Silent Witness, Toast of London, and Mr Selfridge, as well as in two short films, Lifesaver and Blue Season. Her credits also include an appearance in the music video for the rapper Wiley's song "Lights On." Besides Episode VII, Ridley's first film debut is Scrawl.

On August 7, 2014, it was reported that Ridley would reprise her role as Rey in both Episodes VIII and IX.[9]

Ridley won Best Breakthrough Performance for her portrayal of Rey at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards.[10]

Star Wars composer John Williams cited Ridley's "enchanting performance" as Rey as a factor in his decision to return for Episode VIII, stating that he would not want another composer scoring her scenes.[11]
