Ridley believes in right timing, and this applies in her career as well. As the actress told V Magazine after Star Wars premiered, "My first lead role was ridiculous and amazing for a first film, and for a film in general. I have an amazing agent. I feel really f**king lucky. I'm a big believer in timing and I didn't have a job after [Star Wars], and I thought, Oh my God, I thought my life was going to be busier now."
She didn't have to worry for long. Shortly after, she was offered the role in the film Murder on the Orient Express. She continued, "Then I was able to fit in two things easily, both of which I really wanted to do. I thought timing wouldn't work out, but it did."
With that film having premiered in November 2017, and the next Star Wars film out in December 2017, what does Ridley think will come next? Hint: the 25-year-old is thinking about that perfect timing again. "There are things I want to do that I'm too scared to do currently: I really want to do a play and right now, I feel like I'm barely finding my legs doing film. So, eventually I'll do that. There is no plan. For the most part, it's just floating on the breeze."
