Recently, I wrote about Daisy Ridley’s status as a Princess of Privilege. But what if Daisy is related to Star Wars royalty? Daisy Ridley’s WikiPedia entry states the following:
Maida Vale is a suburb of London. Alec Guinness was also born in Maida Vale.
Now, WikiPedia is notoriously inaccurate, so take this with a grain of salt. London is a pretty big place, but isn’t that an interesting coincidence? Could there be more to it? Who knows.
Alec’s full last name is Guinness de Cuffe. His mother’s maiden name was Cuff, who was related to a Benfield. There is also some suggestion of relation to a Geddes family.
Daisy’s father’s name is Ridley, and her mother is a Fawkner-Corbett.
Wouldn’t it be interesting to see if there was some kind of relation here? It sure would put a fun spin on “anyone can choose their family.” Whoever can find a connection first gets a gold star.
