Daisy Ridley shows off her awesome lightsaber skills

OK, so she's learning from a stormtrooper, but hey, keep your enemies close and all that


Daisy Ridley has been brushing up on her lightsaber skills and it’s safe to say she’s pretty blooming good.


The Star Wars actress, who is currently filming Episode VIII, posted a video of her in action on her Instagram page.

OK, so she’s learning this from Lian Yang, who is actually stormtrooper FN-2199 in the film. Hence the ‘traitor’ jibe. But, hey, you know what they say about keeping your enemies closer…


Also, Yang is a master stunt performer who helps co-ordinate the film’s fight scenes. He’s also worked on Skyfall and Game of Thrones. The Force is strong with this one.
