As part of a London sci-fi film challenge...
As you know if you've been anywhere online in the last twenty-four hours, Lucasfilm and Disney announced the cast for Star Wars: Episode VII yesterday. The new members of the cast included some big names like Max von Sydow and Andy Serkis, along with up-and-coming names like John Boyega (Attack the Block), Domhnall Gleeson (About Time) and Adam Driver (Inside Llewyn Davis). But the one name that had most people going "Who?" was the sole actress entering the world of the Jedi for the first time: Daisy Ridley.
If you're unfamiliar with Ridley, you're not alone. She has no major film credits to her name and just a few small TV roles. But here's your chance to see her in action, in a sci-fi thriller short film titled Blue Season. The short was filmed as part of the Sci-Fi London 48-Hour Film Challenge from last year and stars Ridley as a trapped prisoner who receives a phone call from an older man, who apparently can
help her escape her imprisonment. Check it out below.
Star Wars: Episode VII opens on December 18th, 2015.
