Daisy Ridley says she was nervous when her return to the Star Wars neighbourhood was announced. She said, “It was mentioned, so I thought about it. I loved the story, and I was like, ‘Okay.’ Things then happened quite quickly, and it felt like I was instantaneously on a stage being introduced by Sharmeen … it honestly took me back to being 20 or 21, however old I was, when [Star Wars: The Force Awakens] was announced.” She added, “I was petrified, I was overwhelmed, I was really nervous but the response was really wonderful.”
