It's hard to argue that Daisy Ridley isn't the best thing to happen to the Star Wars franchise in decades. Her character arc in The Force Awakens helped to reignite dormant fandom in geeks across the land, and gave generations of young people a new hero to root for. Now the adorable 25 year old is back in The Last Jedi—which opens four weeks from Friday—and showing off more of herself than we're used to seeing!
Striking a decidedly Amy Adams in American Hustle-esque pose and look, Daisy manages to be your dream girl while remaining so incredibly attainable. It's not a lot that you get the kind of beauty that makes you think, "if she weren't famous, I'd probably have a shot with her." Most of Hollywood is filled with unattainable women, so it's easy to understand why so many geeks are fawning over Daisy.
Whether she goes to the dark side, stays a pure light side heroine, or finds some mix in between, we're happy to go along for the journey with Daisy. Now, if only she'd journey her way into my galaxy, I could show her a thing or two.
