Daisy Ridley Roundup: San Diego Comic-Con 2015 Edition [Updated]

Daisy in Falcon set
Daisy Ridley Roundup is a monthly feature where we spotlight all the happenings surrounding the exciting new actress taking Star Wars by storm.

On July 6, 2015 autograph hunters spotted The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley at Los Angeles International Airport. That put us pretty high on the confidence scale that we would see Daisy Ridley at San Diego Comic-Con. Below is an older tweet, but we thought it struck the right tone for things to come…

Her co-star John Boyega told the BBC back in February that The Force Awakens will be Ridley’s “breakout role.” Likely, both Boyega and Ridley will leave their mark while finding friendship along the way.

Isn’t it cute that he calls her “peanut”?

Based on this footage of Ridley in Youngers, she might have been destined for Star Wars.

A while back Hoth Bricks spotted Rey’s speeder disassembled. Now, we have her minifig leaked at SDCC. The full-size replica revealed at Celebration Anaheim as Kira’s speeder can also be found at San Diego Comic-Con, along with kiddie versions of the character.

Here was the first spotting of Ridley and Boyega from SDCC, with the speeder no less.

It appears she used a Hulk mask to walk around the con.

From the panel:

I hope my dress reveals my guns because I worked hard for these.

Going into acting you always hope that physically you can change yourself as well as emotionally in body and character so to be able to have solid months of training, though difficult was amazing.

SDCC 2015 Daisy OscarWhat is exciting about this panel is that we are witnessing the marketing for a SFF genre movie that hasn’t once sexualized its leading lady. Ridley is presented as an action star and worthy of carrying the weight of a central protagonist in heroic myth.

For your viewing pleasure, the footage shown at the panel, featuring Ridley in the Millennium Falcon cockpit gimbal flying solo.

Wrapping it all up tonight with fanart spotlight plus a celebratory fist pump from the rising star.
