'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' actress Daisy Ridley has admitted she is slightly envious of Felicity Jones because she is about to embark on an exciting international press tour for 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story'

Daisy Ridley is slightly envious of Felicity Jones.

The 24-year-old actress has admitted she would love to be reliving her 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' press tour and is a little jealous that Felicity will be doing the same for 'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' soon.

She said: "It was weird, I've talked so much retrospectively about what was going on [in the lead-up to 'Force Awakens']. It was so odd to be reliving it. And she gets to go talk about this film that she's part of in all these amazing places.

"I feel like 'jealous' is the wrong word, but I had such a good time in the run-up to the film, and it was all so exciting. Knowing that she's experiencing that is so great. Plus the film's meant to be amazing, so it's a fantastic continuation of the 'Star Wars' world."

The pair recently met up on the other side of the globe from their native Britain where they discussed their experiences on set.

She added: "Oh God, I didn't give her tips. She's like a proper human being. She's got everything nailed ... We just talked about our filmmaking experiences. And I've been a huge fan of hers for a long time. Have you ever met her? She's so great. So just to chill was really nice."

And Daisy is looking forward to seeing the new 'Rogue One' film when it is released later this year.

She told Yahoo! Movies: "I'm very excited to see it ... I don't know [if I see any similarities between the characters]. That'll be interesting when I watch it. But I don't watch things and think in that way. So I think I'm just gonna watch it and be blown away."
