The 27-year-old British star “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” (in theatres on Thursday night) stops at a strong window during a photoshoot at a Manhattan hotel and addresses her audience.
Four years after first chatting with USA Today for 2015’s The Force Awakens, Bomega still has the same humor but slightly more fashion sense and gravitas when he jokingly said Harrison Ford was his best friend and he made impressions of all his artists.
Boyega’s co-star Daisy Ridley has also developed. Just before “Force Awakens” opened, the then-unknown English actress was poured a cup of yogurt on her face. Now, Ridley, 27 years old, is a full-on celebrity who rides big-time like “Murder on the Orient Express” and even Shakespeare’s heroine in “Ophelia”.
More ‘Star Wars’: ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ is receiving the worst reviews since ‘Phantom Men’s’.
Both young actors, who once had stars in their eyes, are now legitimate Hollywood stars, leaving the “Star Wars” galaxy for new and unknown waters.
Four years ago, Boyega says he and Ridley “fish out of water” and “quite afraid of how this famous life is going down. I think what has changed is I realize what matters and what No.”
After this, Ridley says, he “felt a little bit more, heh, why is it me? You might have made a mistake.” Now I believe it’s all good and I was chosen for a reason Is, so I have more faith in myself. And I just have a little more confidence in navigating the whole world. “
