Daisy Ridley visited a children's hospital dressed as Rey, and that sound you hear is our hearts bursting
Daisy Ridley is a very busy woman, constantly switching between shooting the next installment of the Star Wars saga, Episode VIII, and getting totally JACKED for the role like a total badass. As if she doesn’t already have enough on her plate, let’s go ahead and add one more thing: Making the world a better place.
Over the weekend, Daisy headed out to the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital to hang out with some of the awesome kids there — but she didn’t go as just Daisy (as if being just Daisy is a bad thing, it’s actually A GREAT THING). Instead, Daisy donned her now-iconic Rey costume, and even brought along some big-name friends too, like R2-D2 and C3-PO.
Oh, and Ashley Eckstein from Her Universe (and the voice of Star Wars Rebel’s Ahsoka Tano) was there, too, and it looks like they gave all the kids a lightsaber lesson, which is some A+ work.
Judging from the pictures posted to Instagram, it looks like everyone had the most amazing time.
This is not the first time Star Wars and the Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital have teamed up to bring a hefty dose of happiness into the world. Earlier this year, the cast and crew of Star Wars redesigned some of their own adorable BB-8 droids, that were then auctioned off for the hospital’s charity.
Amazing work from everyone here — Daisy, Star Wars, the children’s hospital, everyone. The Force is most definitely strong with this bunch.
