Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley Has Mad Rap Skills

By Amanda Wicks for Radio.com

It looks like in between takes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega sure had some fun. In new behind-the-scenes-footage from the Target edition of the film’s DVD/Blu-ray, Ridley shows off her rapping skills (via Billboard).

“I’ve got a good eye for talent,” Boyega explains to the camera. While shooting the film, he overheard her rapping one day and jokingly promised Ridley, “You know what, I can make you a big star.” As it turns out, it wouldn’t take rap to make that happen, but at least she’s got a secondary talent to fall back on should acting not work out.

When Boyega launches into a beat, Ridley raps about their time on set. “We all up in the desert and we filming Star Wars / Because of our diet we can eat no Mars bars / Because of the explosions JB crawling on all fours / because of all the heat we can really make some s’mores.”

After she’s finished, Ridley looks away shyly and tells Boyega, “I literally got nervous doing that.”
