"I was petrified," Daisy told Glamour, in a cover story for the magazine's January 2016 issue. "I thought I was gonna have a panic attack on the first day. J.J. ... he probably doesn't remember telling me that my performance was wooden. This was my first day! And I honestly wanted to die. I thought I was gonna cry, I couldn't breathe."
Maybe that was part of J.J.'s hazing process? Just watching the trailers and clips and TV spots, you can already see a multi-dimensional performance from Daisy, so she can leave that "wooden" comment behind. Not that she has seen her full "Force Awakens" performance. She told Glamour, "I haven't seen the film yet - I kinda want to, and I kinda don't - Steven Spielberg's seen it three times, as he told me when I met him!" But did he say anything about her performance? If he said she was wooden too, she probably would've gone into hiding, so he must've liked what he saw (all three times).
"Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" opens December 18th, 2015.
