Daisy Ridley sends witty reply in response to school dance invite

By Jack White

Daisy Ridley(TAG) seems to be as witty as she is gifted on the big screen, sending the perfect response to a fan who asked her to attend his school dance via video message. The YouTube clip, posted by Kevin Carlock, sees the college student and his friends performing a sketch and dance routine for the Star Wars actress.

Taking to Instagram, 23-year-old Daisy posted a handwritten note to Kevin and, although she won't be joining him at the event, we're sure her response was more than enough for him.

@kevincarlock your video made my day! Can't believe I only just saw it! Thank you!!!

Daisy Ridley had to turn down her fan's request, but she had a great response ready

She wrote: "Kevin Carlock, Thank you so much for that brilliant invite to your formal. Unfortunately I'm locked in an intense staring competition with Luke Skywalker, somewhere in the middle of the galaxy, so won't be able to make it. Let me know how it goes! Have fun! Daisy/Rey xo."

Proving that he wasn't bitter about Daisy – who played Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and will reprise the role in Star Wars: Episode VIII next year – turning him down, Kevin posted his own note to Instagram in response.

Good luck with VIII @daisyridley

Kevin Carlock kept the joke going on Instagram

He said: "Ms Ridley. Thanks so much for your response! Father-daughter staring contests are epic, so I understand why you can't make it. Good luck with Episode VIII. And may the formal be with you! Kevin/Kevin xo."

Kevin's original video on YouTube has since been viewed over 40,000 times, and he posted a comment on the sharing site to thank fans for watching.

"Thanks for the support guys," he wrote. "We're honoured to get a response from Ms Ridley and stoked for Episode VIII. May the formal be with us all!"
