Daisy Ridley (full name Daisy Jazz Isobel Ridley) is an English actress. She is known for her role as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She was born in 1992 in Westminister, England and has two older sisters by the names of Kika and Poppy, and two half sisters from her father’s previous marriage. Daisy Ridley won a scholarship to a performing arts school in Hertfordshire, England, where she was a student from the age of 9 to 18. From there she enrolled in college, but shortly dropped out in favor of pursuing her acting career.
Ridley seems to keep her religion to herself and doesn’t speak much about the topic. However, some photos have surfaced of Daisy in a swimsuit that shows off a small tattoo on her right upper thigh. The tattoo is a triangle with a line through it, creating the alchemical symbol for air, and can also be interpreted as a symbol of spiritual awakening. This would make her more spiritual than religious.
She seems to lean towards being a Democrat, even though she’s pretty private about politics. Ridley did post on her Instagram about how a tribute towards the victims of gun violence touched her. Millions of fans reacted negatively to this post, claiming that Ridley had no business posting about gun violence because she played a character in Star Wars that used a gun. A co-star was quick to point out that Jedi’s use weapons for self-defense purposes. Her views on guns were about all we could find, but this could suggest her being more liberal.
She has a passion for humor and is often caught cracking jokes on set or during interviews. She also loves spending time with her dog named Muffin.
In 2015, Daisy started dating fellow English actor, Charlie Hamblett. The relationship lasted for a year and ended sometime in the late winter of 2016.
Since then Daisy has been spotted holding hands with a dark-haired mystery man in New York’s Tribeca neighborhood, but no one knows if they are a serious couple or not.
Daisy suffers from endometriosis which causes her a lot of pelvic pain. She has suffered from it since she was 15, and it has resulted in her having multiple surgeries.
She has three small tattoos: a peace symbol behind her right ear, the alchemy symbol of air on her right hip, and three stars on her left foot.
