Trivia that mentions this person:
Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens [2015]
  • Elizabeth Olsen, Jennifer Lawrence and [?] Shailene Woodley were considered for the role of Rey. Olsen refused the audition for the role because she already had a contract with "Marvel Studios" for the role of Scarlet Witch in the Avengers' franchise, and because the shoot dates for "The Force Awakens" overlapped with Age of Ultron. In April 2014, J.J. Abrams chose Daisy Ridley as Rey, to mimic the same type of selections made by George Lucas, with little known actors for the leading roles. In 1976, Lucas chose Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill for their respective roles of Princess Leia, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker.
  • Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were not allowed to tell anyone about being cast until about three months later. Boyega did, however, tell a taxi driver.
