Daisy Ridley has been busy.
Ever since her role as Jedi Rey wrapped up in 2019’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” Ridley has been involved in numerous other projects.
She was recently featured in the dystopian thriller “Chaos Walking” alongside “Spider-Man: Homecoming” star Tom Holland. She also revealed her culinary baking talents when she appeared on “The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up to Cancer” where she and three other celebrities competed for charity.
Ridley’s creation quickly went viral. After being instructed to make a cake resembling one of their pet peeves, Ridley flushed away her chance of winning when she attempted to make a toilet seat with the lid up.
After spending so much time in front of the camera, Ridley recently revealed that she is ready to take on a different form of acting.
Ridley, 29, has recently joined the cast of “Zoetrope,” an audiobook that focuses on the story of a girl named Tamsin who finds her boss dead on her bathroom floor. Although she claims innocence, a detective is not so sure Tamsin is all she claims to be.
Ridley says that she appreciates the challenges of voice acting because it gives her an opportunity to add her own take on the character.
“Working on Zoetrope allowed me to explore a different side to my acting,” she explained in a recent interview. “It’s of course a fantastic thriller, but as with all the best dramas, punctured with moments of brilliant humour too.”
She added, “It meant I could add a lot of my own personality into Tamsin’s character from the brilliant script by Chris Brandon, which I adored. The unique production on this series really takes the twist and turns of a Jed Mercurio thriller that his fans will love, to a much more intimate audio experience – you truly are immersed in the story.”

Following In His Footsteps
Ridley isn’t the only “Star Wars” alum to make the jump into voice acting after making a name for herself on the big screen.
He has also been the voice for The Hobgoblin in the animated “Spider-Man” series, the Gargoyle in the animated “The Incredible Hulk,” and Master Eraqus in “Kingdom Hearts 3” and “Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep.”

Will Rey Return?
Though Mark Hamill’s days of playing Luke Skywalker have come to an end, there is still a lot of online speculation that Disney plans to continue Rey’s story in future “Star Wars” projects.
Although Ridley has remained noncommittal in regards to her future participation in a galaxy far, far away, fans have numerous “Star Wars” prequel projects to look forward to.
In addition to the debut of “The Book of Boba Fett” hitting Disney+ on December 29, 2021, fans can also look forward to season 3 of “The Mandalorian,” “Kenobi,” “Andor,” and “Ahsoka” set to stream in 2022 and beyond.
