Star Wars fans have been given a lot to think about from now until the release of Episode VII after the cast was announced yesterday. But there was one question on all their lips - Who is Daisy Ridley?

Ridley's name appeared alongside expected returnees Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. Anthony Daniels will also reprise his role as C-3PO as will Peter Mayhew as the loveable Chewbacca.

More established actors such as Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac join the cast to add some modern appeal. But where did Daisy Ridley come from?

She is a British actress who has had bit parts on shows like Silent Witness, Casualty, Mr. Selfridge and Toast of London. It has been said that she is an amazing jazz singer and she also excels in accents from various regions in the British Isles.

She is strikingly pretty and will add some much needed femininity to a cast that heavily male dominated. Rumours are flying around that Ridley beat away competition from Hollywood A-listers including Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o which is no mean feat.

Other than that, it is very difficult to find more information on Ms. Ridley as she doesn't even currently have a Wikipedia page. That is all about to change though as she is set to be embraced by one of the biggest and most loyal fan bases in the movie world. Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams as he continues his stellar Hollywood rise.
