I just have to say, I love Daisy Ridley so much! I admire her because she is talented, kind, and incredibly positive. I love how passionate she is about the role of Rey and Star Wars in general. I love that she promotes the movie in funny videos and connects with her fans. I love that she acknowledges Reylo and has liked Reylo fanarts on social media in the past.
What I love most is seeing a woman who has serious illnesses that only affect women starring in a lead action role. PCOS and Endometriosis are no joke…they can be incredibly painful, exhausting, and can cause an imbalance of hormones which can affect your physical and mental health. If you have never experienced it, you can’t understand the toll it can take on your body. Women have different experiences with PCOS and Endometriosis, different symptoms can occur in one woman that does not in another.
I remember reading an article about Daisy having to eat so much of the bread Rey eats in that one scene in the movie. She stated how exhausted she felt after eating so much of the bread which is an effect of the PCOS. People with PCOS tend to produce too much insulin which in turn causes extreme exhaustion. I’m not talking about I’m tired and I could use a nap, I’m talking about I could stay in bed and sleep for days and still feel exhausted.
It is amazing watching Daisy overcome both of these illnesses and rock the role of Rey, which is intense both physically and mentally. I appreciate her candidness about her illnesses in the past, it has helped her fans who have to deal with these illnesses greatly.
Daisy, you rock and I love you! Thank you for being an amazing role model and inspiration to women everywhere including us who have PCOS.
