Daisy Ridley Autographs Have Fans In Uproar
Today, “Authentic Signature Send-Ins” announced the first ever autograph session for the leading actress of Lucasfilm’s blockbuster movie “The Force Awakens”.
Star Wars fans are used to getting access to a large number of celebrities that appeared in movies. Nearly two dozen will appear at the “Star Wars Celebration” and “Star Wars Weekends” for autographs. Naturally, a fee is involved.
At the most recent Celebration, Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) cost $125 for his signature, Carrie Fisher (Princess/General Leia) cost $70, and others like John Morton (played an X-Wing pilot in Episode V) cost only $20 (all prices USD).
However, fans were outraged to hear that the cost to get Daisy Ridley’s scrawl on just an 8×10 photo would be a whopping $300. If you mail in a full-size poster, the price doubles to an incredible $600.
As seen on their Facebook page, the complete list is as follows:
