Daisy Ridley has encountered a troublesome situation on set, being told by a crew member on her forthcoming film with Tom Holland Chaos Walking that she was ‘intimidating’ and  separately that her ‘energy is ‘quite aggressive‘ while meeting with a director, a comment that made her wonder how she comes across to others.

“I’ve been told that I’m intimidating. That was on Chaos Walking. I was having my hair done, having my wig put on. I remember thinking, ‘God, should I be smaller? Should I be quieter?’

“I’ve been called aggressive, too; my energy is ‘quite aggressive’. That was during a meeting with a director… I was thinking, ‘But why? Is it because I maintained eye contact? Is it because I’m passionate about what we’re talking about?’

“I dunno… You have that horrible sinking feeling of, God, do I not come across the way I think I do?”
