UPDATE! Daisy Ridley’s Stunt Double is Headed to Dubrovnik!

ChloeChloe Bruce, the stunt double of Daisy Ridley from The Force Awakens has just posted on Twitter that she is headed to Croatia. Of course there is no confirmation that her point of the visit is the Episode VIII set, but everyone would agree that this is hardly a coincidence…




This comes as a surprise since a few days ago Ridley herself revealed that she won’t be part of the Dubrovnik shoot.


It’s very likely that the close-up scenes, where Daisy is needed for the sequence in Dubrovnik to be shot at Pinewood Studios. They will probably use Chloe for some distance shots in Dubrovnik. It’s much cheaper this way, since you don’t drag around your main stars on foreign locations.


And there is yet another possibility – Chloe also might be a stunt double for one of the new female characters that we will be appearing in Episode VIII, but it’s unlikely.


If you’re not familiar with Chloe Bruce, here’s she with her favourite staff:





Thanks to Le Jedi Lorrain for the heads up.





It appears that after our post Chloe has deleted her Tweet. You can still see the text above. I think we don’t need more confirmations on that. 🙂

    Or it’s possible that bbc guy got played by Ridley. I mean what was she supposed to say?

      Faux pas!

      On a non-related note: Woke up to a seriously cruel joke – NO REBELS THIS WEEK…DAMN!!!

        I know! My wife and I were excited for the next episode, especially after the last one.

  • March 10, 2016 at 2:57 pm

    I think Daisy Ridley will be heading to Croatia very soon as well.

  • March 10, 2016 at 2:58 pm

    Well, they lied to us a few times before, so… if daisy’s there I believe Mark Hamill might be there too….

  • March 10, 2016 at 3:05 pm

    I want one.

    • March 10, 2016 at 3:25 pm

      They come in packs of two.

      • March 10, 2016 at 10:59 pm

        I don’t think I can handle two…you guys are talking about the staff right? 😉

        • March 11, 2016 at 12:15 am

          Nope 😉

        • March 11, 2016 at 6:17 am

          No we’re not talking about the staff. You guys are doing a great job here.

    YAY! That pretty much means that Rey is gonna be on that Dubrovnik planet.

  • March 10, 2016 at 3:37 pm

    Ok…Rey is going to so freakin’ awesome with a double bladed lightsaber (one can only hope). Now I really want to see her deflecting an array of blaster bolts by twirling that lightsaber around her neck. 🙂

    • March 10, 2016 at 6:18 pm

      I”m there with you. Her fighting style definately lends to a double bladed lightsaber. No sense on training with that style for her or her stunt double for a couple scenes in TFA without it in my opinion.

  • March 10, 2016 at 3:49 pm

    Okay, did anyone else imagined her against Darth Maul after watching the video? Hahaha

    • March 10, 2016 at 4:28 pm

      Yeah. After a prolonged fight, Maul would lose.

  • March 10, 2016 at 4:07 pm

    I remember that scene of Brick when Joseph Gordon-Levitt Knock Out a hitman/drug dealer in a corner, I want witty scenes like that in Ep. VIII!

  • March 10, 2016 at 4:15 pm

    Rey is the descendant of Dooku….we get to see his residence in this town.

    • March 10, 2016 at 4:54 pm

      I bet for Palpatine, but Dooku could work aswell.

    Oh, look she deleted her tweet. Stop asking about actor’s shooting schedule reporter.

  • March 10, 2016 at 6:15 pm

    Nothing cooler or sexier than a woman that can fight. She’s bad ass and Rey will be too

  • March 10, 2016 at 7:09 pm

    Maybe we should say Daisy Ridley is Chloe Bruce’s “talking double.”

  • March 10, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    Pretty safe to say Rey will turn that staff into a double bladed light saber. Yup !

    • March 10, 2016 at 10:34 pm

      I hope your right! That would be beyond epic!

  • March 10, 2016 at 10:43 pm

    How much of her was onscreen in TFA?

    • March 11, 2016 at 3:36 am

      only her head and arms, anything more and the rating would go up.

      • March 11, 2016 at 11:26 am

        Ha! Long as it’s not a Black Swan situation.

  • March 11, 2016 at 12:36 am

    Kylo = Revan, Rey = Bastilla Shan – ‘there is always a little truth in legends’.

    On her official site she sells signed photos for 2.99£ which is actually a great deal. Cheapest Star Wars autograph out there.
