Buzzfeed's got some amazing footage of Daisy Ridley's Star Wars Vii audition tape, in which she performs the torture scene perfectly. It's not hard to see why JJ Abrams cast her in the film after seeing this amazing raw performance.

Daisy Ridley came across a post of her with a speech bubble suggesting that she's too skinny to be a "real woman".  She commented on the post which then got a lot of attention. 
Ridley posted a follow up on her own Instagram after her fans went after the person who posted the original.

Production has kept a pretty tight lid on most of Star Wars: The Force Awakens' secrets, but rumors fly and sometimes actors let things slip.  In the video above, Rey actress Daisy Ridley drops a pretty big hint that all but confirms who she really plays in the movie. 

According to Ridley, "I'm solitary, that's how I begin, that's probably a big clue."  Solitary, eh? As in... Solo?  The leading theory on the internet is that she is the daughter of Han and Leia, which her "solo" joke seems to confirm.  We've also seen her alongside Han on the cover of Vanity Fair, where she definitely looks like she could be his daughter:
