2. Daisy Ridley

No doubt Daisy did a happy dance when she got the call she’d been cast in the new Star Wars film. She’s had a few bit parts in British TV shows like Youngers and Silent Witness, but the 23-year-old British actress is essentially unknown. It’s a similar strategy that George Lucas took, casting relative newbies in the original Star Wars film. Ridley will be taking on the lead role of Rey, a resilient human scavenger on the harsh desert planet of Jakku. Even though the film hasn’t come out yet, the actress’ star power has already taken off. She’s now working on her next movie called Joy alongside notable A-listers Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro.
