While Daisy Ridley’s anonymity earned her the role of a lifetime, she has now emerged as a force beyond Star Wars. At 25, the London-born actress is unafraid to be vulnerable and unwilling to let the magnitude of the franchise define her budding career. Our November cover star let us in on the profound influence of her family, why she insisted on “growing up” out of social media’s glare, and how she coped with the stunning fame of Star Wars. Here, we bring that strength and versatility into focus with a series of gritty, action movie–inspired shots. See her cruise through the air in cascading Gypsy Sport and glide across metal grates in Valentino haute couture in this month’s cover slideshow.
