Daisy Ridley has revealed how her stressful Star Wars experience impacted her health.The actress shot to fame after making her big screen debut in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which also starred the likes of Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac.In a new interview with The Times, Ridley said she was thrilled to be given the opportunity, but admitted that she also felt significant anxiety and stress after becoming the face of a major film franchise.Revealing that her anxiety led to stomach ulcers, she said: “Essentially, it was a leaky gut,” before adding that she was “just knackered” while promoting the film.“I’d never travelled that much, or done press junkets, and my body deals with stress in a very physical way, so my gut was manifesting an emotional reaction to travelling around the world, people saying hello to me in the street.

And me going, ‘What’s going on?’ And worrying.”Ridley also admitted to being worried about whether she was the right choice for the role of Rey, and if she was “good enough” to lead the franchise.

It wasn’t until the third film in the trilogy that she finally felt confident.Listing her worries, she said: “‘Oh shit, should it be me?’ or ‘Am I good enough?’ And I only really felt I was by the third film, The Rise Of Skywalker.
