Jameson Empire Awards 2016 - Red Carpet ArrivalsEvery little kid dreams of wielding a lightsaber -- and even grown-up princes like to play pretend -- but Daisy Ridley gets to live her dream every day in the new "Star Wars" movies.

As Rey, Ridley already got to fight with a lightsaber against Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," and for a beginner, she was pretty good. With "Star Wars: Episode VIII" currently filming, she'll presumably get to do some more of that, now that Rey has found Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and can be the padawan to his master.

Ridley posted a short video to her Instagram that featured the actress practicing some fight choreography:
Not quite Jedi level yet, but practice makes perfect!

"Star Wars: Episode VIII" opens Dec. 15, 2017.
