Daisy, who worked with the late actress on 2015 film The Force Awakens, looks stunning as she graces the November cover of Vogue.

Wearing an off the shoulder diamante studded dress, a flawless Daisy stares seductively into camera in the sleek cover shot.

While speaking to the magazine, the 25-year-old actress said Carrie told her that romance was hard as a Star Wars star "because you don't want to give people the ability to say 'I had sex with Princess Leia'."

She also said of Star Wars veteran Carrie, who died in 2016: "I'd never met anyone openly bipolar before, who discussed loving glitter because of her LSD days."

She said the praise for her performance made her worry that she would not be able to repeat it in the second film in the series, The Last Jedi.

She said: "Everything was so confusing.

"People were recognising me - I still don't know how to handle it.

The star said at one point some fans even turned up at the door of her apartment and knocked to ask for autographs.

"I literally went, 'No f**kin' way'," she said, adding that her mother told her: "Everyone's trying to take ownership of you."

Daisy then "went and saw a lovely lady" who helped her to adjust to her new life.

"I felt like I was sort of reducing myself because I was so worried that people would recognise me," she said, before deciding: "You know what? I want to dance through life.

"I don't want to scuttle."

The November Vogue issue is out on national newsstands 10/24
