Daisy Ridley won’t even talk about Star Wars to freakin’ Judi Dench

Daisy Ridley’s poker face belongs in a museum

Susana Polo is an entertainment editor at Polygon, specializing in pop culture and genre fare, with a primary expertise in comic books. Previously, she founded The Mary Sue.

Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express is a star-studded affair, featuring the talents of Michelle Pfeiffer, Willem Dafoe, Penélope Cruz and ... Josh Gad and Daisy Ridley.

Gad is a nerd. Ridley is the lead of the third Star Wars trilogy.

So, needless to say, he’s been grilling her about Star Wars: The Last Jedi and posting the results on Instagram and Twitter.

Today, perhaps thinking that Ridley might respond more positively to a fellow countrywoman, he enlisted the help of fellow Orient cast member (and nerd) Dame Judi Dench.

Ridley’s poker face is the true star here. She knows that any reaction she gives to Gad, the twitch of a mouth, a laugh — anything — will pored over by ravenous nerds in forums around the world.

And so she gives him... nothing.

The next level of puzzles.
