DAILY MAIL – Daisy Ridley was sandwiched between Penelope Cruz and Willem Dafoe. Kenneth Branagh was directing. And Judi Dench and Olivia Colman were just out of eyeshot..but not earshot.

‘So no pressure,’ the actress guffawed, as she told me about the first scene she shot for Branagh’s all-star film version of Agatha Christie’s Murder On The Orient Express. Daisy said she’s always nervous during shooting — but she managed just fine in two Star Wars pictures (in which she plays young heroine Rey).

‘Before a scene my heart is pounding, every time,’ she admits. ‘But my first scene on Orient had to be in front of everyone, didn’t it? I couldn’t hold a cup, because it was rattling. But I got through it.’

The scene involved a confrontation with Dafoe, and it’s clear from footage Branagh showed me that Ridley’s nerves didn’t get in the way of her performance as governess Mary Debenham, the film’s moral compass.

At 25, the actress was one of the youngest in a cast that also included Derek Jacobi, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Josh Gad and Lucy Boynton.

She auditioned for the part and was surprised to get it (touchingly, she still can’t fathom why she’s sent every script going). She deserves her luck, though, because I know how much graft she puts in before going for any audition or job.

I also know (and like) how she often turns up (without fanfare) when her friends are in a stage show. She’d love to do a play and has spoken to directors — but it won’t be until everything has been played out in that galaxy far, far away.

Murder On The Orient Express opens on November 3; The Last Jedi on December 15.

Chaos Walking, Movies

DEADLINE – Doug Liman’s Chaos Walking starring Tom Holland, Daisy Ridley just got pegged for a release on March 1, 2019 by Lionsgate. The sci-fi adventure film, based on the book from Carnegie Award-winning author Patrick Ness, is about a guy (Holland) who lives on the distant planet of New World—a new hope for humanity until struck by “The Noise,” a virus which inflicts immersive visions of ones’ every thought. The cacophony drives many mad until Todd makes a hidden, silent discovery: there is a girl named Viola (Ridley), who may be the key to unlocking New World’s many layered secrets. Together, the two unlikely companions are forced on a white-knuckle adventure into an unexplored planet – trying to escape and hide in an environment where all thought is heard, all movement seen –as they both discover the truth about the lives they left behind and the spectacular world they’ve learned to call home.

Movies, Ophelia

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Daisy Ridley is the forbidden love of Hamlet in The Hollywood Reporter’s exclusive first-look image of Ophelia.

Set in the 14th century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia is a dynamic re-imagining of the Shakespeare’s tragedy that tells the untold story of her tragic romance with the prince.

Naomi Watts, Clive Owen, George MacKay, Tom Felton and Devon Terrell also star in the film, which follows Ophelia as the Queen’s (Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet (MacKay) and a forbidden love blossoms.

Owen plays Claudius, Felton plays Laertes and Terrell will play Horatio.

Directed by Claire McCarthy, the adaptation comes from Lisa Klein’s book and Semi Chellas wrote the screenplay. Daniel Bobker, Sarah Curtis, Paul Hanson and Ehren Kruger are producing.

Covert Media is handling international sales at the Cannes Film Festival. CAA is handling domestic rights.
