But JJ is the kind of person who before a scene says, "Don't fuck it up. But it was just tense.

And I thought, "OK, loosen that shit right up and it'll get better. In fact, Daisy found JJ Abrams and the rest of the production crew to be incredibly nurturing, to the extent that she was rarely aware of the Star Wars 'machine'. It was a friendly set, she says, where she mostly hung out with John Boyega, the year-old Brit who plays Finn, and with whom she had the greatest number of scenes, although her best friends were among the crew. JJ Abrams had deliberately hired hair and make-up for Daisy from the team who had worked on the Harry Potter franchise because, she says, 'aside from the fact that they're amazing, he knew that they had looked after Emma [Watson], Daniel [Radcliffe] and Rupert [Grint] for however many years.
I felt very well taken care of.

Harrison Ford, meanwhile, reminds her of her dad — 'They both have an earring and are fucking awesome,' — and the first time she shot a scene with him, he gave her a hug and said, 'She's so adorable', and she felt right at home after that. Meanwhile, when her real dad visited the set, he went up to Mark Hamill and, in classic dad fashion asked, 'So, who do you play, then?
In fact, the most difficult thing about the whole Star Wars experience has been reconciling the terrible warnings she received about how life would change with the reality of what actually happened - that, and the anxiety of shooting the second film. In the first instance, 'Everyone asked me, "Are you ready for your life to change? Surely she has occasionally been starstruck herself?
I never had a crush thing. So when I met Barbra Streisand, for example, I was blown away, not because of her work, but because she's a fantastic woman. Daisy ended up singing with her on the song At the Ballet from A Chorus Line , and finding a new role model for herself. Part of her reputation comes from being a woman.
If it was a man being "controlling" about his career, people would just say he knows what he wants. One of the things Daisy has struggled with in the wake of growing fame is the responsibility of being told Rey is a role model for young girls. She has been asked about feminism and has had to scramble, on occasion, to form an opinion, not because she is bland or apolitical, but because everything she now says has the potential to come back and haunt her.
For someone struggling with self-doubt, this can have a paralysing effect, and it is testament to Daisy's seriousness that she has the sense to acknowledge it. Of course, whatever kind of attitude you have, being a beautiful young woman in Hollywood means you are exposed to constant scrutiny. Daisy, like Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Lawrence before her, will have to weather the salacious interest that undercuts anything she has to say and, if she seems less confident than her peers, it's not only part of her charm but also, paradoxically, speaks to some deep-seated security that one assumes comes from Daisy's family; it can take greater courage to admit to one's weaknesses than to cover them up with bravado or a fake kind of self-confidence.
She has also learned to sit back and relax a little, although shooting the second Star Wars movie, in which she had fewer scenes with her pal, John Boyega, made her briefly very stressed. I was thinking I did the first one because I didn't really know what I was getting myself into and I was having loads of fun, and suddenly I'm realising what this actually is, and I can't fucking do this. She says all this with a smile to acknowledge how neurotic this was. And [director] Rian [Johnson] just said, "We're going to do this, and these are the scenes, and this is how it's going to work," and finally I was like, "Oh yeah, this is working.
Having that kind of experience helps, but Daisy still has moments when she has to check herself to make sure it's all real.
