Daisy Ridley experienced extreme anxiety after being cast as Rey in the ‘Star Wars’ franchise, which led to serious health issues.

Daisy Ridley, renowned for her role as Rey in the Star Wars franchise, faced significant health challenges due to extreme anxiety following her casting. The immense pressure and isolation experienced during the filming took a toll on her well-being, leading to the development of “holes in her stomach wall.”

This alarming health scare necessitated a six-month hiatus after Star Wars: The Last Jedi, allowing Ridley to recuperate before returning to the screen for The Rise of Skywalker. In retrospect, Ridley acknowledges that the quieter period following the conclusion of the Star Wars series provided an unexpected opportunity to process her emotions and grief.
