In 2014, she was included in the drama revolving around a department store entitled “Mr. Selfridge” playing the role of Roxy Starlet, and also appeared in the popular series “Silent Witness”. Her various roles in television, though relatively minor, helped to advance her career and net worth.

While building her portfolio, Ridley also appeared in minor short films, such as “Scrawl”, “Crossed Wires”, “100% Beef”, “Lifesaver”, and the sci-fi horror movie “Blue Season”. While she had been very busy appearing in multiple television shows and movies, her major breakthrough came in 2014 when she was included in the cast of one of the most popular movie series of all time, “Star Wars”.

It was announced in 2014 that director J. J.

In 2015, the first of the sequel of the Star Wars trilogy was released entitled “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, and it was a hit among fans. However, aside from the film’s record breaking feat at the box-office, Ridley’s performance as Rey was also a major highlight for critics and fans, naming her the breakout star of the film. Her appearance in the film not only catapulted her name to fame but also considerably boosted her net worth.

In 2016, Ridley lent her voice to the lead character Taeko in the English adaptation of the animated film “Only Yesterday”. She will also reprise her role as Rey in “Star Wars: Epsiode VIII” in December of the folowing year.

In terms of her personal life, Ridley is dating British actor Charlie Hamblett, a relationship which began in 2014.
