'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' actress Daisy Ridley will follow the box office performance of the movie from her bed

Daisy Ridley will follow the box office performance of 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' from her bed with "a stormtrooper mug full of hot chocolate".

The 23-year-old actress stars as Rey in the new sci-fi movie, and has revealed she'll be keeping a close eye on the public's reaction to the film from the comfort of her own home.

She shared: "This is the image I have. I'm going to be in my bed, with my cat next to me and a stormtrooper mug full of hot chocolate, and I'm just going to be looking at the box office figures.

"I'm just going to be looking at the numbers, at how many people are going to see the movie. I can't wait to see how well we do."

And Daisy's co-star John Boyega - who stars in the role of Finn - is similarly excited about the release of the J.J. Abrams-directed movie.

He told the BBC: "It feels like everyone's ready for it to come out now.

"There's been so much incredible work, so many people having input into it, and we're now ready for everyone to see it."

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he?
