Being cast in Star Wars was a dream come true for 23-year-old British newcomer DAISY RIDLEY, who went from puling pints in her local to global fame!

Before her big break as feisty Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (right), Daisy (left) was having to do bar work to pay the bills. It was only a couple of years ago I was pulling pints in a London pub as an aspiring actress trying to make sure the rent was paid. Now I have got my own action figure coming out!she said last week.

Between shifts behind the bar, the brunette actress had small roles in Casualty and Silent Witness, but being cast by iconic director JJ ABRAMS is set to propel her to mega-stardom.

And she’s already being mobbed when out in public. I always liked the Star Wars movies but I wasn’t what you call a super fan and I didn’t realise how much it meant to people, she says. When you do get that, it makes you want to do the best possible job.
