Carrie Fisher interviews Daisy Ridley in the latest edition of Interview magazine and offers some sage advice...
The interview is really relaxed and you get the sense when reading that these two really bonded during the shoot. At times absurdist ramblings, at times wise guidance, Carrie's interview style betrays a relationship that seems to have been galvanised whilst on set. It makes me wonder how much time they got together onscreen? Check out Carrie's opening gambit:
One piece of advice given was to fight to stay out of the slave outfit. Carrie warned that people will objectify Miss Ridley if she allows it. That goes beyond fans seeing her as a sex symbol, it also means the film makers. Something tells me that with Lucasfilm being under the watchful gaze of Kathleen Kennedy, Miss Ridley may have less of a fight on her hands.
