British actors Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, who play Rey and Finn in Episode VII of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, have been named in Forbes’ 30 under 30 for entertainment.

The duo are joined by the likes of central 50 Shades Of Gray actress Dakota Johnson and Oscar tipped star of Brooklyn Saoirse Ronan on the list of the most powerful young players in Hollywood.

Life has changed enormously for John and Daisy since they were cast in The Force Awakens and suddenly found themselves acting alongside Harrison Ford and gracing the front of lunchboxes in shop windows.
