Here’s a first official look at Actress Daisy Reidley (yep, Rey from the Star Wars franchise!) as the title character in Ophelia, the upcoming romantic drama movie directed by Claire McCarthy:
“Set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia is a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Ophelia (Daisy Ridley) takes center stage as the Queen’s (Naomi Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet (george MacKay) and a forbidden love blossoms. As war brews, lust and betrayal are tearing Elsinore Castle apart from within and Ophelia must decide between her true love or her own life in order to protect a very dangerous secret.”
May the force be with her!
Besides Daisy Ridley, the cast also includes Naomi Watts, Clive Owen, George MacKay, Tom Felton, and Devon Terrell.
