Interview, Photoshoot  •  By

Star Wars actor Daisy Ridley is vowing never to return to social media, saying her use of Instagram and Facebook is forever “cut off like a Skywalker limb.”

The British star sat down with BuzzFeed News’ morning show AM to DM on Wednesday to discuss her role in Ophelia, a movie version of Shakespeare’s Hamlet told from that character’s perspective. But she also weighed in on a variety of other issues.

After she was first cast as Rey in the Star Wars films in 2014, Ridley said she found social media amplified critical voices who were mad that the sci-fi series was now focusing on a central woman character.

“I honestly think now with social media and stuff…it’s great to have freedom of expression, but I do feel like people think opinions have so much weight,” she told BuzzFeed News.

It’s a tradition now: every time a Star Wars movie comes out, Vanity Fair gives us a special first look of the next movie. Daisy is featured on the cover-special as Rey. They also released a full story and an exclusive behind the scenes look:

There’s a desert valley in southern Jordan called Wadi Rum, or sometimes “the Valley of the Moon.” There are stone inscriptions in Wadi Rum that are more than 2,000 years old. Lawrence of Arabia passed through there during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire. More recently, J. J. Abrams went there to film parts of the latest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker, because it’s largely uninhabited and starkly beautiful and looks plausibly alien, and one of the things that has always made the Star Wars movies feel so real—as if they had a real life of their own that continues on out beyond the edges of the screen—is the way they’re shot on location, with as few digital effects as possible. George Lucas shot the Tatooine scenes from A New Hope in southern Tunisia. For Skywalker, it’s Wadi Rum.
