Three New Interviews with John Boyega and Daisy Ridley!

John & DaisyWe have a few new interviews today with the next generation of Star Wars actors. The publicity machine has been released from its holding pattern and we have lots of new material coming out daily now.


First up is The Hollywood Reporter featuring some excellent interviews with John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. There’s a lot of good stuff to read in this interview, but here are some highlights.


Boyega on What drew him to the part of Finn:

I think I’m always interested in characters that start off one way and end another. I find it very boring to have to read a script where the character always knows what to do, knows who they are, has a blueprint for their lives. I just feel that sort of character is painted for a perfect story. What has always interested me, and what has interested a lot of people, are the characters that are unlikely. The characters that don’t necessarily fit or match the status quo. Finn isn’t a guy you would expect to be involved in this story. The fact that he’s a Stormtrooper. We don’t [usually] go into [Stormtroopers’] pasts or lives much: how the dynamics work for them, how they were recruited — we don’t ever really see much about the past there. It was interesting to me to have that kind of character.

Rey BB-8

Daisy Ridley on here similarities with her character:

The main difference is that she didn’t have a family and I have a family that I’m close to. Otherwise I’d say the way we deal with things is similar. She faces a lot of challenges throughout the film, and the way she reacts to things I think is kind of the way anyone would. That’s why I think she’s so universal and brilliant: She’s frightened but she faces up to what she needs to. And she’s brave and smart, and you see an entire emotional spectrum of her throughout the film. She’s not a superhero. She’s a normal girl thrust into extraordinary circumstances, so it’s very relatable. It’s an emotional story about a girl on a journey, but the story is a lot more than that.

And Daisy addressing the elephant in the room that is her parentage:

THR: Everyone wants to know who Rey’s parents are. Do you know?

DR: Yeah.

THR: Will the viewer know after the first episode or not necessarily?

DR: Questions will be answered, absolutely. The main question will be answered.


Next up we have Boyega doing another great interview with CNET. Again, these interviews are definitely must reads if you want to learn about the actors and their experiences in making The Force Awakens, but here are a few highlights.

Finn ignites

Boyega on his first Star Wars experience:

I saw “The Phantom Menace” first, which is pretty cool. I watched it at home and the only thing I was obsessed about was [the character] we now know as Darth Maul. Black and red, his face used to creep me out.

I remember watching the prequels and just not being as intrigued. But then I watched the original, and I was like, “ohhh.”

Boyega on his Favorite Star Wars Scene:

The scene where Han Solo and Luke have gone to rescue Princess Leia and they’re in the control room [on the Death Star]. There’s a moment where Harrison is talking into the intercom. There’s a little exchange [with a Stormtrooper] and he shoots the intercom. I love that moment. It’s just hilarious and funny.


And Finally, some illuminating details on what Boyega brought to the character of Finn:

Charisma is a big thing about Finn that I had to tap into. Finn has an inner confidence that is really, really mine.

For the first few auditions that I did for “Star Wars,” I had to acquire a dramatic approach because of the content on the page. But then after a while I thought to myself, “Wait, this is ‘Star Wars.’ ‘Star Wars’ is different from any other project. ‘Star Wars’ has its own culture. It has its own energy.”

I said, “You know what? I’m going to go to YouTube, and I’m going to watch Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford’s audition for the original ‘Star Wars’ movie.”

And I watched their audition, and there was this casual approach to danger and to being a hero that I drew some inspiration from. If you see Harrison in his audition and Mark, there’s this, “The ship’s about to blow up, but, woo hoo! Switch to light speed!” I love that. No other movie does that. In another movie they’d be crying and calling their parents, but in “Star Wars” it’s like, “woo!”

It’s all fun. So I’m just like, “I’m going to go in and have a whale of a time.”


Last, but not least, here’s a very interesting interview with John Boyega that was first published in the latest issue of the French magazine Premiere (via Google translate):

You said in an interview that the history of the The Force Awakens echoed in the first film of 1977. Especially the arc of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. What did you mean ?

It is mainly a question of tone and rhythm of the film, how the characters speak. The dialogues are really funny, very energetic, very dramatic – in the sense that they advance the plot … What is squarely in the spirit of the original.


We will talk about the jacket of your character. It’s really cool.

Are you kidding? It is super cool. I love it.


Great movie heroes have cool jackets. Mad Max, Ryan Gosling in Drive …

Mine is a true miracle of design. I hope it will become the fashion symbol of the new Star Wars generation. But this jacket also plays an important role in history.


What do you mean ?

Mmm. (silence) This jacket has secrets. We see Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) also wearing it in the trailer.


Then it is to whom? To you or Oscar?

I can not tell you. Lord! It could reveal the entire plot of the film!


Judging by the trailers, the film looks quite gloomily.

There are pretty intense scenes, sure. But it is also fun, as joyful and as inspiring as previous. The original movies (note: the first trilogy) really served as a model to achieve balance between humor, action, drama.


You know that legend has it that Samuel L. Jackson had the right to choose its color lightsaber blade? He wanted a color that no one else had. He chose a purple blade. You had the right to choose your color too?

Seriously? The chance. I did not choose. J.J. Abrams chose. Blue, simply. You should have asked me I would not have been blue. I would have chosen black. A black blade with a consistency like smoke … A black-lightsaber. I do not know how they can do this visually but I’m sure it could be empty.

Finn CU

We heard about your character from Star Wars for the first time in September with the Finn toy. Who speaks with an American accent.

I actually auditioned with an English accent and an American accent – the accent of standard Tatooine, as I call it. It’s funny because I feel more comfortable speaking with an American accent than my native accent.


What did you do in your audition?

Speak with Daisy Ridley. It was pretty simple. Much has raced together. There is a lot of racing scenes in the film. Especially for me. 


It seems that you cried reading the script.

Oh, yeah, absolutely. Well, it was not tears but rather eyes moist from the beginning to the end. The script is awesome. See the name of his character so often quoted in a film destined to become legendary, it is mainly this that moved me. (laughs)

Stormtroopers - The Force Awakens teaser

You responded rather well to racist attacks, to those who say that a Stormtrooper can not be Black. But how did you react early on?

No anger, no sadness. I especially liked that lots of fans have supported me. You hang yourself with positive feedback, and you think carefully about how you can respond to hate. The best ways was to them that they would enjoy the movie anyway.


Is Kylo the new Darth Vader?

is a bad guy like Vader. But the are different levels of evil they may vary. With Phasma, Snoke played by Andy Serkis. … They play an important role. 


How you discovered Star Wars?

VHS. I was eight years old when The Phantom Menace came out but I have not seen in theaters. In fact, I have seen NO Star Wars on the big screen in a movie theater. I’m not even gone to Secret Cinema (note: a London happening where we project a cult film in a special setting: this year it was The Empire Strikes Back). The Force Awakens will be the first Star Wars movie I see in theater.


I think its safe to say that Disney and Lucasfilm has begun the push to introduce us to our new generation of heroes. Check out THR, CNET and Premiere respectively to read the entire piece.

    Star Wars: The Jacket Awakens

    • November 5, 2015 at 12:38 am

      Concept art SWNN posted a while ago – notice what appears to be a lightsaber hanging off the jacket… does this signify a connection between saber and jacket? (Usually lightsabers are seen hanging from the belt…)

      • November 5, 2015 at 1:20 am

        I believe when he first wears the jacket, (which is takes from Poe) he still has his ST undersuit on which has no belt so the only place he could put the saber would be on his jacket.

        • November 5, 2015 at 2:33 am

          Poe could be a force user to. Him having the lightsaber may not be so coincidental.

        • November 5, 2015 at 4:59 am

          Good point Jason, thanks!

      Star Wars Episode VIII: The Jacket Strikes Back

  • November 5, 2015 at 12:26 am

    The Force Alarm clock… 😀 Google Translate at its best.

  • November 5, 2015 at 12:26 am

    The Force Alarm Clock…can I have one for Xmas please?

  • November 5, 2015 at 12:43 am

    Good stuff, if a little painful to read at times.

    • November 5, 2015 at 1:23 am

      The only painful thing I read was the grammar to the questions.

    • November 5, 2015 at 3:00 am

      Yep, the translation from the French magazine is a little rough.

  • November 5, 2015 at 1:41 am

    In THR interview , Daisy revealed she still struggled to get the role in audition, after TFA made her star status.

  • November 5, 2015 at 2:23 am

    Boyega seems to be too much caught up in the whole Star Wars experience. I would recommend he cooled down a little bit. Although I like Boyega, I also think his self-admitted self-confidence might occasionally come across as arrogance, which is not good for him or his image.

    • November 5, 2015 at 4:34 am

      What arrogance? The man comes across as being extremely humbled, excited and grateful.

      • November 5, 2015 at 12:30 pm

        You’re right. Not once I’ve thought about Boyega being arrogant.

      • November 5, 2015 at 1:48 pm

        The constant self-praising of his acting skills and preparation for the role is what sounds arrogant to me. Besides, he already feels and acts like a star even before the movie is out. I don’t want to criticize Boyega, but, again, I think he’s been a little bit carried away in his interviews so far.

        • November 5, 2015 at 2:41 pm

          Okay. So he should be more reserved like the lovely and cute Daisy? Yeah? hehehe

      • November 5, 2015 at 3:55 pm

        No, he comes off as cocky and arrogant. Remove your PC glasses.

  • November 5, 2015 at 2:32 am

    “I remembered watching the prequels and just not being as intrigued..blah blah fan service blah blah lets bash the prequels (except Maul of course) blah blah blah and only talk about the originals blah blah”..STOP DEGRADING THE PREQUELS!! THEY’RE PART OF STAR WARS DAMMIT!!

    • November 5, 2015 at 2:42 am

      It is clear from the interview that the OT is the model for the new movies and the order is to stay as far away from the prequels as possible.

      • November 5, 2015 at 2:52 am

        Yea, you’re probably right. I mean it’s understandable because there’s a pretty big gap between them, but to ignore them completely is a little extreme.

        • November 5, 2015 at 4:37 am

          Actually, it makes perfect sense. The last thing Disney wants to do is cause unnecessary controversy with their first film, and the Prequels weren’t anywhere near as enjoyable to the general public as the Originals were.

    • November 5, 2015 at 3:22 am

      Every construct will have it’s strong and weak aspects. I thinks it’s a good thing to improve upon what was learned from the weak aspects. Though the prequels are indeed a part of Star Wars, IMO they lacked that sense of heroic fun that ANH had. ANH set up fun, inviting, and passionate characters, so that you cared about them later when put into dire situations. I was worried, watching the new trailer, that everything was going to be too serious, and the characters too grim/downtrodden. I grinned from ear to ear when he was talking about the “whoo-hoo” factor. I understand that tons of people love the prequels, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for improvement; and using ANH as a model is a good way to re-capture that sense of heroic fun/charisma that many feel the prequels were missing.

    • November 5, 2015 at 3:38 am

      You do realize… he simply may not have liked them as much. You’d be surprised how many share those sentiments. That’s my polite way of putting it 😛

      • November 5, 2015 at 3:54 am

        Lol this is true..I just wish they didn’t emphasize this in almost every interview for this film.

        • November 5, 2015 at 4:39 am

          When was the last time the Prequels were brought up?

          • November 5, 2015 at 4:46 am

            I think the last time was during that virtual interview with JJ..they brought up Jar Jar and JJ responded with saying there was a spinoff show in delevopment called “Binks and I” which was pretty funny.

    • November 5, 2015 at 3:54 am

      Yeah but they’re quantifiably shit. Sorry.

      • November 5, 2015 at 3:57 am

        Not everyone shares that opinion…

        • November 5, 2015 at 3:52 pm

          And it’s JB’s opinion that the PTs are shit, so, get over it!

          • November 5, 2015 at 6:33 pm

            Right, but I’m not convinced if this is his opinion..or if he’s just trying to please the large amount of fans who dislike the prequels..that’s what’s bothering me. It’s a smart move for the marketing of the movie, but sucks if your a fan of the prequels. But who knows maybe you’re right and he really isn’t a fan, I guess we will never know.

          • November 6, 2015 at 1:11 am

            maybe stop looking for conspiracies and take facts at face value, it makes life easier

          • November 6, 2015 at 1:45 am

            Wow!!! A life lesson in a Star Wars comment thread?! Just when I thought my day couldn’t get any better!! Thanks man!

          • November 6, 2015 at 4:32 pm

            My pleasure, with the new trailer dropping, today turned out to be a good day 🙂

      • November 5, 2015 at 3:54 pm

        So, much like your bullshit opinion then?

    • November 5, 2015 at 5:12 pm

      At least he admits to liking Episode I. Watching the 6 in order may have given him a better appreciation for the OT.

  • November 5, 2015 at 2:34 am

    Quoted text still JUST barely cut off, unfortunately, although it has improved. It doesn’t impair reading and is an extremely minor problem, so it really doesn’t matter. Thank you for the improvements though.

  • November 5, 2015 at 3:11 am

    If her Father is really Luke, It’s going to be interesting to see how they don’t make him look like a deadbeat. Considering how he and his Father were raised, It seems like the LAST thing he’d want to do is abandon his own child on another desert planet.

    • November 5, 2015 at 3:49 am

      maybe like with vader, luke doesn’t know about her.

      • November 5, 2015 at 6:04 am

        Cliched but Abrams never takes the original route and it makes more sense then him just ditching her in the middle of nowhere. No Mother roles has been cast for this film or the next yet either which could be a potential plot hole.

        • November 5, 2015 at 2:17 pm

          Umm, Luke is the Father of a Force Child…

          • November 5, 2015 at 2:26 pm

            Lol. that would be an interesting birth indeed.

  • November 5, 2015 at 3:14 am

    Google Translate might want to take another crack at the French interview, but until we get a better translation, I’m going to refer to the new movie as THE FORCE ALARM CLOCK.

    • November 5, 2015 at 3:34 am

      How you discovered Star Wars?

      • November 5, 2015 at 3:37 am

        Do Kylo is the new Darth Vader?

        • November 5, 2015 at 12:30 pm

          My personal favorite: Well, it was not tears release many waters but rather eyes moist from the beginning to the end.

          • November 5, 2015 at 2:15 pm

            My pants raised up in tent formation upon receiving the ice cream sandwich of hope that is my happiness of joy in partaking in such delicious nonsense…

  • November 5, 2015 at 3:39 am

    I’ve given up not being hyped… I just am. Hopefully I can manage it enough to not expect the second coming of film 😛

  • November 5, 2015 at 3:47 am

    i hope we get to see some of boyega’s sense of humor in the film, everything we’ve seen with him so far is super serious.

    • November 5, 2015 at 4:02 pm

      As far as his in game character he is was trained as a soldier his whole life. I’m sure his character progresses the more he is away from the First Order though. It seems his personality got him the role so I’m sure good things are to come.

    • November 5, 2015 at 6:55 pm

      He’s a stormtrooper turned good. If we DO get any humor from him, it’ll likely be fish-out-of-water crap. Careful what you wish for.~

  • November 5, 2015 at 6:33 am

    I’m so torn about who Rey is related to… I have a few good reasons to think either one may be the father (Han, or Luke).

    I can’t imagine Luke ditching her on some planet for her own safety, if that was the case.

    Parent/child troubles between Han and Rey could be a reason to think she left, but why would she leave to go to some trash dump planet?

    I have a feeling she was born and raised on Jakuu. Or at least raised from neonatal age if she wasn’t born there.

    She clearly doesn’t know anything about the force or the Jedi’s/darkside associated with it. So that would mean Luke didn’t have anything to do with her raising, but doesn’t mean he didn’t ditch her on Jakuu, but why would he do such a thing when you would assume he would rather be a father figure to his daughter vs. repeating what happened with his.

    I don’t know if Han is tasked with watching out for her on Jakuu, but it kinda seems like prison/horrible gaurdionship to let her rot on Jakuu just for her own safety. Besides that, he seems to eventually reacquire the falcon, meaning he probably stumbled onto Jakuu/Rey in the process.

    So many questions…and we haven’t even started with Kylo Ren..

    • November 5, 2015 at 9:34 am

      I wonder… is Max von Sydow’s fatherly character actually none other than Luke in a holo-disguise, raising Rey anonymously? That would be jumping the wampa and out-assholing Obiwan, but it could happen.

  • November 5, 2015 at 6:37 am

    Are you telling me that Boyega seen the first Star Wars, and not the old ones from the IV? But just watching the prequel? oooh my god .. Personally, to be a director (JJ Abrams), so I can not give the role to someone who has not seen a kid from childhood the old Star Wars IV of 1977 .. (sorry for my english)

    • November 5, 2015 at 6:41 am

      Not sure what you are trying to say, but that’s okay.

      But I think you’re you trying to say that Boyega hasn’t seen the OT? He has, he just saw the PT first because he was born in the 90’s.

      He even says up above that he didn’t really care too much about SW until he eventually caught up with episode 4, 5, and 6.

    • November 5, 2015 at 9:30 am

      I understood the opposite,
      JB saw the PT because he’s part of the new generation and didn’t watch Star Wars until the huge-scale event that was the PT.
      He didn’t think much of the PT, but then he watched the OT and understood why it has so many fans.
      Ridley found Star Wars the same way: Watched the PT because everyone did, then jumped back to the OT and got hooked.
      So effectively, that’s proof that the OT is intrinsically better, nostalgia aside – but I digress.

      I love to death the fact that he actually researched How to Audition. The more I hear about this guy the more I respect him. The fact that he specifically worked on his Energy and Screen Presence to make the film as Fun as possible is music to my ears.

    • November 5, 2015 at 12:09 pm

      apparently you didn’t read his entire interview.

    • November 5, 2015 at 3:56 pm

      My first experience with Star Wars was seeing them on TV (before the special editions) and my first theatrical experience with them as a kid was seeing the Special Edition of the original with my family. I was also a kid when Episode I came out and have fond memories of those films as a child. Boyega is five years younger than me. It makes sense that his first experience was with Episode I. That’s what was great about the prequels, love ’em or hate ’em. They introduced a whole new generation to SW. As an adult, I much more prefer the OT to the PT, but I can’t deny the impact the PT had on me as a child. The guy can’t help how old he is or what his first experience was with SW. He even went on to basically say that it wasn’t until he later saw the OT that he understood why so many people loved these films. He is a fan – make no mistake.

  • November 5, 2015 at 8:09 am

    I was thinking this exact thing! Sure, it’s darker looking now…but otherwise VERY similar!

  • November 5, 2015 at 9:48 am

    My theory as to Rey’s origin:

    She is Luke’s daughter, she is the survivor of a shipwreck or maybe some war-catastrophe which killed her mother, Luke was somewhere else doing Jedi stuff, but before he could get to Rey, war broke out. Meanwhile, Luke is being hunted down by Snoke and the Sit- um- KNIGHTS, um, of Ren, and so Luke decides that subjecting his daughter to a life as a fugitive would be unfair, and decides to pull a ObiVader and keep his distance while he gets the whole Sit- i mean- Ren thing under control.

    This would explain why Han isn’t really acting father-like with her, because Han’s her uncle. I’m not sure if Han and Leia know Rey is their niece, perhaps Leia “I’m not a Jedi” Sky-Organa-Solo figures it out, while Han is oblivious?
    So that’s why the first thing Han tells her and Finn is about the Jedi – not about the rebellion.

    Or perhaps I got it backward, after all, there is always the possibility that Max von Sydow, allegedly the ex-captain of the Star-Destroyer wreckage, is an old war friend from when Han Solo was in the Imperial Navy? Maybe it’s MvS’s idea to contact Han?

    • November 5, 2015 at 1:58 pm

      Or that Rey says she is “no one” because she is ashamed to be a Skywalker?

      • November 5, 2015 at 3:48 pm

        Ashamed no, Op-Sec yes!

      • November 5, 2015 at 5:01 pm

        Actually yeah, that’s more the way it sounds.

        I suppose that would explain some things, if people knew Luke as “that terrorist nut-job who blew up 1,000,000 brave Death Star operators”. It would make sense that Luke would be shunned, perhaps even by Leia as a way of PC damage-control. That would be an interesting spin on the story.

    • November 6, 2015 at 3:46 am

      Assuming there was a shipwreck as you say, maybe Luke doesn’t even know Rey survived. That would be a good reason for him not to have raised her.

      • November 6, 2015 at 11:01 am

        Yeah, as if Luke would NOT see this “twist” of events coming a mile away…

  • November 5, 2015 at 12:08 pm

    A thing I’ve not seen anyone bring up, is we probably will find out bigger revelations in the next films than we do in this one. Just like the other two trilogies. They are not going to tell us everything about all the characters in the first film. Rey could be related to someone important, we may not even know until one of the next two films. You never know.

    • November 5, 2015 at 12:26 pm

      She literally says that we will know after The Force Awakens.

  • November 5, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    It was like google translate just got progressively worse as the interviews went on.

    • November 5, 2015 at 2:37 pm


    • November 5, 2015 at 3:49 pm

      The Force Alarm Clock, never forget!

  • November 5, 2015 at 3:10 pm

    Does that make her She-Ra?

  • November 5, 2015 at 3:28 pm

    Yep… that’s a good question. and it’s intriguing me.. but for me he doesn’t looks secure when he holds it

  • November 5, 2015 at 3:42 pm

    Qui-Gon Finn…lol…I noticed this as well. Obi-Wan and Yoda also used this form, although as Obi-Wan progressed into knighthood and became a master, he incorporated form III (which was more defensive) into his unique style.

    In the films, it’s hard to tell what form of lightsaber combat Luke uses as he assumes different stances throughout. He seems to lean more towards form V like his father, but in the final issue of Shattered Empire he seems to have adopted a more aggressive stance similiar to that of the Ataru form.

    It makes sense that Finn would adopt such a widely used form. Also, it could just be that it feels natural to him to stand that way and has nothing to do with form. But this thing’s not gonna over-analyze itself – so here we go. 🙂

    • November 5, 2015 at 4:17 pm

      Seriously though, this is the pic that got me thinking…

      • November 5, 2015 at 4:22 pm

        This was the other partial shot…

    • November 5, 2015 at 5:12 pm

      Bear in mind there are two variables at play:
      1 – Finn is an amatuer
      2 – Finn is an amatuer who is standing opposite the Dark Side-wielding mascot of the 1st Order coming at him in direct assault.

      What I notice in his stance is someone who is afraid and is preparing for impending ass-kicking; putting both hands on guard to protect as well as he can, an amatuerish move BTW, as he isn’t actually blocking any specific move, just putting up the blade hoping for the best.
      However he does have the same pose in both posters, so I guess it is a form he’s following, I don’t know. Nevermind.

      • November 5, 2015 at 5:31 pm

        Whoa dude, please cease with the “nevermind” – I find your comments very insightful… thanks for sharing! ☺

      • November 5, 2015 at 5:34 pm

        What I did notice was his determined gaze, not really one of sheer terror, more of someone who just seemed to somehow “know” how to present a blade…

    Finn appears to be wearing the jacket that Luke is wearing in the book “The weapon of the Jedi” now that I actually think about it. So my guess is that it’s Lukes jacket.

      That jacket doesn’t have the red patches that Finn’s has. I’m not saying it isn’t Lukes, but it doesn’t appear to be the same jacket.

    I think it’s sweet that Poe gives Finn his letterman jacket.

    I still think Finn has some sort of training. Everyone points out how he looks scared while hes fighting Kylo Ren, but you have to consider even with training, these guys never been in actual real lightsaber fight.

      Not so much a lack of training, but clearly he has little confidence, implying a lack of experience.

    Actually yeah, perhaps Kylo Ren is sort of a reverse-Luke, who wishes he WAS Darth Vader’s son.

    Please die in this movie….Mace Windu this dude is not.

      Preferences I guess. Windu was the worst of the Jedi to me. I think it was a bad cast to have Sam in the preaquels. His performance was very wooden, he didn’t seem to fit.
      Finn on the other hand I like alot so far. So I’ll vote for him not to die.

    I think I love that man

    In the CNET interview, the part about the prequels, it’s not clear if its from the interviewer or Boyega. At the original link.

    Gotta be Biggs’s jacket 😉

    I’m thinking Kylo Ren is fascinated with Rey, because, just like a Vader artifact, she’s a Skywalker, the daughter of the last (as far as we know) Jedi, Luke Skywalker.
    So, because Kylo is a ‘collector’ of Sith/Jedi memorabilia, then adding a living, breathing Skywalker to his collection is the icing on the cake. The cherry on top of the cake is Luke’s blue lightsaber, which of course was originally Anakins..
