Daisy Ridley built a Millennium Falcon out of Legos in five minutes while answering questions about "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" in an interview with Elle magazine before the debut of the highly anticipated film.

The magazine gave the actress the unusual chore during a photo shoot where she answered a wide range of questions. The actress told Elle she felt more of the burden of the movie this time than in 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

"You would think in my second 'Star Wars' I would feel like a pro," Ridley said in the video, starring again as the heroine Rey, who will be directly under the instruction of Luke Skywalker himself in the new film. "In fact, I felt much more nervous. I felt more responsibility and more personal pressure because I knew what people had taken from it.

"… It's important because I know the effect Rey had on people and the sort of direction Rey is going in the story of 'Star Wars' and onward, the depiction of women in cinema and across the board."

On a lighter side, Ridley said despite the success of "The Force Awakens" and the build-up over "The Last Jedi," slated to hit theaters Dec. 15, she has not been able to change her father's opinion about "Star Wars" over "Star Trek."

"No, I have not been able to change my dad's mind," Ridley said. "He's is very much a 'Star Trek' fan."

Ridley went on the say in an unrecorded part of the interview that she has embraced advice she received from the late Carrie Fisher to "not shrink away from success but enjoy it."

"And that was wonderful," Ridley said of the advice. "Everyone asked me (before 'The Force Awakens'), "Are you ready for your life to change? And that gets into your mind."

Fisher died Dec. 27, 2016 after her scenes for "The Last Jedi" had been shot, where she continued the role of Leia Organa, the leader of The Resistance, which is being hunted by the First Order, noted Entertainment Weekly.

Ridley added that she was initially "very stressed" being without friend John Boyega, who she shot most of the scenes with in "The Force Awakens."
