EXCLUSIVE: Daisy Ridley makes £1.3 MILLION in investments after pocketing ‘£12m’ from Star Wars films
Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley is one of this country’s highest-paid showbusiness figures, and it seems she’s inherited her mother’s gift for finance.
As revealed by The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden that Daisy, the daughter of banker Louise Fawkner-Corbett made a cool £1.3 million from investments in the last year.
The figure is included in newly published documents for Fawks, the business through which she channels her earnings.

There is no salary disclosed for the 30-year-old actress who used to pull pints before getting her big acting break, but the accounts show that she borrowed £2.7 million from the company last year.
It’s now worth £13.5 million, an increase of almost £1 million.
The news comes after it was reported last year that she earned a staggering £12million from her role in the Star Wars movies.
The actress 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.
The same year, Daisy landed in 45th place on The Sunday Times’ Young Rich List, who stated her net worth was £19 million.
It comes after the actress made her long-awaited return to social media after a nearly six-year hiatus in April.
The actress was less than a year removed from her first major film role as Rey in 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, where she played Rey, when she deactivated her Instagram in August 2016.

She made quite the surprising return sharing new snaps, with her first post already amassing nearly 50K likes in just under a day.
Her first post was seemingly from a posh hotel as she relaxed in a white robe while sipping a hot beverage, wearing unique ‘glasses’ that emitted a red glow on her face.
‘Coming out of social media hibernation refreshed, recharged, and ready for what I’m calling my “Year of Yes”. (And that’s the tea),’ Ridley said.
She added that the photo was, ‘courtesy of my <3 glam @lipstickkelly and @dayaruci’ in her post.

The actress shared even more photos in her second post, which featured digitally-painted backdrops, and her mimicking two famous paintings – Edvard Munch’s The Scream and Johannes Vermeer’s Girl With a Pearl Earring.
‘Trying to remember how to use this app. Maybe it’s a good thing I didn’t have Insta during quarantine, or else I would have posted these. Oh, well, still posting them,’ Ridley said.
Her first post back included a comment from her co-star on 2017’s Murder on the Orient Express, Leslie Odom Jr.
‘Welcome back. Take your breaks when you need em! x,’ Odom Jr. told her in his comment.
