Daisy Ridley has been cut from The Inbetweeners 2 because of her role in Star Wars, it has been revealed.
The young British actress was a near-unknown when she was cast in JJ Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII.

And Inbetweeners co-creator Iain Morris told Yahoo! Movies that he had been sad to have to edit her out.
"We've cut her out of the film," he said.
"She was in the opening of the film. We reshot the opening because the script didn't work. We desperately wanted Daisy to come back and do it because she's brilliant, really funny. But by that point she was doing Star Wars."
And his co-writer Damon Beesley added: "She wasn't available because of Star Wars contractual commitments. She wanted to do it... She's brilliant and she'll be a huge star.
"We cast her before she got the role in Star Wars."
The Inbetweeners 2 is released in cinemas next Wednesday.
