On Her Birthday, Daisy Ridley Provided Storytime to Star Wars Fans!
The Actor Behind Rey Reads Star Wars: BB-8 On The Run
This was a treat for my guys, who love BB-8 and Rey.
Daisy Ridley, who was born on April 10, 1992, gave Star Wars fans a gift when she sat down to read, “Star Wars: BB-8 On The Run.”
As part of an ongoing series, #DisneyMagicMomoents, the actor behind Rey — who looked very comfortable in a striped oversize shirt (pajamas?) — held storytime.

Meanwhile, another celebrity who has been known to read to fans, Josh Gad — who is the voice behind Frozen’s Olaf — chimed in on Twitter to wish his good friend Daisy a happy birthday.
There aren’t many people who make me laugh and smile as much as this British dame in waiting. Now that I no longer have to harass her for Star Wars secrets, I can safely say she is one of the greatest human beings (or Sith Grandchildren) I have ever met. Love you Ridley! pic.twitter.com/m4Ntpciwgk

Gad, of course, famously trolled Ridley with Rey/Star Wars questions while on the set of Murder on the Orient Express.
Of course, John Boyega shot a note to his peanut:
And the official Star Wars account chimed in, as well:

In any case, our favorite would-be scavenger added a slide to the video, which said:
Thank you to everyone staying at home and thank you to everyone out on the frontlines helping those in need. Please accept my tiny offering of gratitude in the form of storytelling.”
May The Force be with you, Daisy. Indeed!
