There’s something about this girl that people around her can feel. There’s something about her that’s going to broaden the story. And she is the last man standing, as it were.
Daisy Ridley, Blueprints of a Fight: The Snow Fight
I was embarrassed that I even wanted to become an actress because coming from L.A., with two older sisters in the business and a mom who had been a ballet dancer, it was such a cliche.
I definitely feel like my voice has more weight now. It’s funny, because when I was doing voice coaching before — because I was slightly posher in it than I am day to day — the voice coach said that I do a thing like when I’m talking and I used to lose my voice at the end of sentences a lot and that’s an emotional thing, because a lot of the time I felt like what I was saying had no weight, and that there was no point in what I was saying, and I don’t do that anymore. So that’s a nice thing. I feel like when people have appreciated you as much as they have, for you as a person, it gives you such a wonderful sense of self. I’m still learning who I am, and still learning and testing my capabilities, but to be surrounded by people who care is great.
