Full Force | Daisy Ridley Shoots for the Stars

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.

When last seen, in the clifftop payoff of The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley’s Rey was face-to-face with Luke Skywalker. What happens next, to be revealed when The Last Jedihits screens, in December, is closely guarded. But from Ridley, Mark Hamill, director-screenwriter Rian Johnson, and producer Kathleen Kennedy, David Kamp gets exclusive insights into the future of Star Wars—including how the cast and narrative have been rocked by Carrie Fisher’s death—while Annie Leibovitz captures legends new and old.

Par-Delà Le Réel | Cédric Delsaux

Au premier coup d’oeil ce sont évidemment les références à la saga Star Wars qui saisissent le spectateur de “Dark Lens”, fameuse série de Cédric Delsaux. Mais il serait malvenu d’y voir un pastiche opportuniste. Au contraire, cet ensemble s’appuie sur une longue réflexion — les premières photos datent de 2004 — et s’inscrit dans un travail d’auteur sur le réel et sa représentation.
