Happy Birthday, Daisy Ridley!
In honor of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens star turning 24 yesterday, here are our top five reasons why she is our favorite person ever.
1. She is hilariously entertaining.
From making cheesy Star Wars jokes to doing Chewbacca impressions, Daisy is always able to put a smile on our faces.
2. She is stunningly beautiful.
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Like, look at her.
3. She is such a badass.
In order to kick ass as Rey, Daisy has to be pretty strong herself. Just check her out deadlifting 176 pounds (and the inspirational message she wrote alongside the video):
I don’t know if #fitnessfriday is a thing(?!) but HERE’S MINE! Lifting 80 kilos/176 pounds feeling like an absolute boss. ??? Initially I had to pack on some muscle to look like a desert scavenger, but have continued working out because it makes me feel really good. The female form is beautiful in all shapes and sizes, whether that’s athletic, straight up straight down or curvy; you just have to do what makes you feel good, try not compare yourself to other people and LOVE YOURSELF!!! As it stands I’m of the athletic variety so I’m gonna keep pumping those weights ??? #girlswholift
4. She is really quite talented.
Not only is Daisy an amazing actress, but she also has quite a few hidden talents, including rapping! Here she is spitting a verse about Star Wars as co-star John Boyega beatboxes next to her:
5. She is us on so many levels.
Daisy is just as excited about playing Rey as we are to see her! And, just like us, she freaks out over seeing her own action figurines, gets emotional about meeting other celebrities, and even sheds a couple tears watching the Star Wars trailer.
Staying in a little b’n’b with my friend… Set an alarm to watch the trailer… My friend filmed my reaction. Totally emotional seeing it for the first time and so so so incredibly awed to be part of this incredible legacy #starwars #theforceawakens
