Daisy Ridley Star Wars salary
Before the release of ‘The Force Awakens’, the young actress only had small television roles. She was talented, no doubt, but a chance for her talent to unfold to the fullest was yet to come. When she auditioned for Star Wars episode seven, her performance was jaw-dropping.
She impressed everybody, and the young beauty bagged the role. This episode of the Star Wars saga was literally the highest-grossing movie of its year (2015). It collected more than $2 billion around the world. This, however, did not mean that the very first Daisy Ridley Star Wars salary had seven digits.
There are indications that the money the actress received for her participation in the eighth episode of the epic franchise was a six-digit figure. The amount could hardly be compared to wages of the saga’s veterans like Mark Hamill or Harrison Ford.
Nevertheless, the Hollywood movie-making industry is known for its seniority-based payments. Daisy Ridley salary in ‘The Last Jedi’ and ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ grew substantially.
In 2017, the young celebrity was working on seven projects, including ‘The Last Jedi’. She has voiced several video games and TV shows in addition to movies. All this has replenished her bank account quite substantially.
So, how much does she have after all these projects? Unfortunately, there is no official information on Daisy Ridley net worth Forbes 2019. The last time the actress appeared on Forbes lists was in 2016 when she was named among the 30 Under 30 people together with her colleague, John Boyega.
As estimated by other reputable sources, Daisy Ridley net worth in 2019 was approximately $6 million. This amount includes all her salaries from all the projects she has participated in and all the endorsements she has done. Apart from acting, the young woman is a producer. Her debut as a producer happened back in 2016, as she produced ‘The Eagle Huntress’, a documentary film.
Her mentioned voice works include those in video games like ‘Lego Wars: The Force Awakens’ and ‘Star Wars: Battlefront II’. Apart from video games, Daisy lent her voice to ‘Only Yesterday’, the animated film as Taeko. Her most recent voice work is in ‘Peter Rabbit’ by Beatrix Potter, in which she performs the role of Cottontail. The project also stars Margot Robbie, James Corden, and Rose Byrne.
A small by-the-way fact connected to the actress’s voice is that she is a stunning singer. She does jazz vocals perfectly. Coincidence or not, her full name is Daisy Jazz Isobel Ridley.
Since the year has just started, it is too early to calculate Daisy Ridley net worth 2020. We will see how many projects the actress will undertake this year and how profitable they will be.
