Ridley Roundup: November 4, 2014

Boyega Ridley lean and mean July4

Daisy Ridley departing the Episode VII wrap party in London on November 1, 2014.

Our last Ridley Roundup was in August. Back then I pointed fans toward events that might suggest where Daisy Ridley’s character may be headed in Episode VII and beyond. September and October were quiet as filming seemed to ramp up with the return of Harrison Ford. In the wake of several key female stars having private information stolen and shared around the internet, and also prominent geek women being doxxed, Daisy Ridley left social media. Her name still pops up in rumor reports, increasingly so recently. It appears she is the central figure in much of the leaked concept art; that doesn’t confirm she is the lead in Episode VII, but it is another piece of evidence pointing in that direction.

In IndieWire’s On the Rise: 13 Actresses To Watch, Daisy Ridley is the lead off up-and-comer in an article that points out that “last year saw the three of the top-grossing movies — “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Frozen” and “Gravity”—star women, all in genres that are traditionally more male driven.”

Empire Online picked Ridley as one of its 21 Stars of the Future, although true to form the site was more concerned with her looks than any actual skills that might make her a box office breakout.

Fangirls Going Rogue Episode 12: Star Wars is for Everyone!

On this month’s episode of Fangirls Going Rogue, Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr report back on their convention trips, including interviews with Steve Blum (Zeb) and Greg Ellis (Baron Ruhdor) from Star Wars Rebels. Plus we unveil a new logo courtesy of RebelForce Radio’s Jimmy Mac and artist Chris Amorim.

Listener emails always make us smile, and we’ve received even more mail this month from fanboys who love the show. Star Wars truly is for everyone! One email led to a discussion of ways to give back beyond the costuming fan organizations. Our suggestions include Force For the Cure and Cat Taber’s Games for Soldiers, which we highlighted in our first episode.

The opening of ILM’s studio in London gave us a chance to talk about a couple of important women leading Lucasfilm into the future: Kathleen Kennedy and Lynwen Brennan. Kathleen Kennedy mentioned during the opening that Episode VII filming was nearing its conclusion, which is exciting, and also gave us a chance to talk about spoiler etiquette in the age of social media.

In addition to Teresa’s awesome interviews from Fanboy Expo with the voices of Zeb and Baron Ruhdor, Steve Blum and Greg Ellis, we did a written interview with Star Wars Rebels artist extraordinaire Amy Beth Christenson. She is a lifelong fangirl who was inspired to draw Star Wars by her aunt. We hope you’ll check out her full interview either at FANgirl or Jedi News. Amy Beth Christenson won the Judge’s Choice for the Her . . . → Read More: Fangirls Going Rogue Episode 12: Star Wars is for Everyone!
