Daisy Ridley has reportedly earned a staggering £12million from her role in the Star Wars movies.  

The actress, 28, played the role of Jedi knight Rey in The Force Awakens in 2015 and went on to play the same character in The Last Jedi two years later. 

According to her business accounts with company Fawks Ltd, the star shows assets of £11,956,930, according to The Sun.

Wow! Daisy Ridley, 28, has reportedly earned a staggering £12million from her role in the Star Wars movies (pictured in 2017) 

Daisy, was working as a barmaid before being cast in the franchise, also starred in The Rise of Skywalker in 2019. 

MailOnline has contacted Daisy’s representatives for a comment.  

Last month, she joined the cast of The Great Celebrity Bake Off and proved she hadn’t forgotten her Star Wars moves as she showed off her lightsaber skills.  

Role: The actress played Jedi knight Rey in The Force Awakens in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, The Force Awakens in 2015, The Last Jedi in 2017, and The Rise of Skywalker in 2019

Daisy delighted judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith with her moves when they came to talk to her during their walkthrough for the first challenge, which saw her make 12 millionaire shortbread.

Prue asked Daisy if they could have ‘one lesson in lightsaber movements’, and Daisy said: ‘Oh I can do that, of all the things I thought might happen it wasn’t this.’ 

The Murder On The Orient Express star asked what the pair and co-host Matt Lucas would ‘like to know’, and Paul simply asked: ‘What can you do?’

Daisy took her rolling pin in hand and gave it a twirl as she did while portraying Rey in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, and then went on to move it from on side to the other while twirling it.

Paul gushed: ‘Oh that’s nice’, while Matt joked she ‘could become a majorette’ with moves like that.

Daisy appeared on the show alongside Alexandra Burke, Rob Beckett and Tom Allen, and the singer, 32, was ultimately crowned Star Baker. 

In the films, her character, a scavenger from Jakku, learned of her abilities with the force, and worked with the Resistance to defeat the First Order, lead by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis).

The trilogy ended with Rey taking on the Skywalker name after defeating Emperor Palpatine and being brought back to life by Ben Solo, who had turned back to the light and given up the name Kylo Ren.
