If you've seen The Force Awakens you know that Daisy Ridley has an amazing breakout performance. The young star who plays one of our new heroes, Rey, brings all the passion, all the strength and all the characteristics you'd expect from a young jedi was previously unheard of and that's exactly what Abrams wanted. They wanted to find someone who was not previously known for something else but someone who had everything they needed for this role. Daisy blew them away with her audition.

Buzzfeed has the clip from the audition and more information here:

“What we were looking for was someone new, ” J.J. Abrams says in the clip. “This character needed to be vulnerable and tough, sweet and terrified. And to find someone that no one knew who could do all these things took a lot of looking.”

Once you see how she nails the performance, there will be no question about how she got the role. Rey is already a strong role model for women and girls of all ages and when you see the intense performance that Daisy gave to get the job, you can see why they were as impressed with her then as we were to see her on the big screen.

And now that the movie has just released on DVD (april 1st) and is coming to Blu-ray this week, if you missed it in the theaters (where have you been?!) or you just want to see it again, there's no better time than now. The DVD release also has more additional footage so you won't want to miss this. You can even watch it on Amazon Video.

For more behind-the-scenes features, check out Star Wars: The Force Awakens, available on Digital HD April 1 and on Blu-ray April 5.
