Daisy Ridley talks about fame, Carrie Fisher, and Star Wars in Vogue

Star Wars: The Last Jedi actress Daisy Ridley is on the cover of this month’s Vogue Magazine and, in the article, gives fans a glimpse into her life growing up, getting off social media, dealing with fame, and the franchise that launched her career.

In the article, Ridley mentioned Carrie Fisher’s advice on how to handle fame. She says in the article, “Everything was so confusing. People were recognizing me—I still don’t know how to handle it. My skin got really bad because I was stressed. It was crippling. I just felt so seen and so self-conscious.”

After seeking help, Ridley finally seems to find her place. “I worry that things start to seem normal that aren’t normal,” she says. “You get rushed through airports, and you never have to queue, and you get tickets to things that you wouldn’t otherwise. I think it’s important to remind yourself that it’s not normal. It’s difficult, though, because it is my normal.”

As part of Vogue’s coverage of Ridley, the actress also participated in Vogue’s 73 Questions where we get to know some of her thoughts, including her opinions on Dame Judi Dench, Oscar Isaac, and Harrison Ford. During questioning, she was asked some Star Wars questions including showing off a few of her lightsaber skills and Wookie sounds. Jokingly, of course, the “spoilers” for The Last Jedi were bleeped out.

Ridley can be seen next in next month’s Murder on the Orient Express and in Star Wars: The Last Jedi on December 15th. Ridley’s Vogue cover is out on stands now.
