I don't like Leia Organa.... There I said it. When I watch movies I do see the actor portraying the character, and Carrie Fisher didn't sell me on the awesomeness of Leia. Rey on the other hand won me over within seconds... The scene where she is eating and wearing the rebel helmet pretty much told me I'd follow her anywhere. Daisy Ridley really nailed the magic in this character, and I has the charm and charisma needed to draw everyone in. I don't know whose relative she is, what if she's related to Palpatine? That would be a Shymalan. Rey is my second favorite character in TFA and I can't wait to see her become a Jedi.
