During a break from filming the remake of Murder on the Orient Express, Josh Gad asked his costar Daisy Ridley some Star Wars questions. He filmed the whole hilarious interaction and posted it to his Instagram page. Apparently, Josh said he wanted to rehearse a scene with Daisy. He used that excuse to corner her in his trailer and pry her brain for any Star Wars knowledge she was willing or able to share.
Not surprisingly, Daisy didn’t budge one bit.
But despite the fact that the video doesn’t contain any Star Wars insider information, it’s highly entertaining to watch nonetheless.
Daisy walks into the trailer knowing something is up.
Call it her Jedi sixth sense, but you can tell by the smile on her face as Josh records her that she knows her costar has ulterior motives for his invite. He starts out chill enough by complimenting her and apologizing for not asking her this question last night. And then he playfully gets right into his real reasoning for chatting with Daisy.
Thanks to the exciting reveal of the next Star Wars movie’s name The Last Jedi, he wants to know what exactly that means.
Daisy smiles at first and, rightfully so, makes the very valid point that she can’t ask him about Frozen 2. Josh tries to offer up some information about the Frozen sequel to see if that will entice Daisy to give any spoilers. Instead, she stays steely eyed and shoots him down.
If she can take Kylo Ren in a lightsaber battle in the frozen woods without any real training, she can certainly handle a barrage of questions from a fellow actor.
Though Daisy’s tone becomes intense, it’s obvious she knows Josh is just messing with her. Josh is a part of some major franchises himself (like Beauty and the Beast and Frozen). So he certainly knows that actors have to keep movie secrets. Once Daisy picks up that he’s messing with her, she turns on her (excellent) acting skills and shoots him down the entire (hilarious) video.
But, hey, you can’t blame a guy for trying!
