     Precious little is known about British actress, Daisy Ridley who has a handful of TV credits to her name in shows such as Casualty, Silent Witness and Mr. Selfridge.  All that looks set to change however following a role in The Inbetweeners 2 and a certain Sci Fi saga that a few fans will be waiting until 2015 to see.

     Here is Daisy’s slideshow *WARNING contains boobage!!*

     Recently released cast details reveal nothing about character names and roles but British actor John Boyega (22) is most likely to fill the role of hot young hero whilst hoping to escape the saga’s infamous Hamill-Christensen curse.

2013-05-23-073     A brave and determined Yorkshire schoolboy is set to cycle an astonishing 75 miles to raise funds for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund (registered charity no. 1103253).

     Lex Stephenson, age 13, will be taking part in the Capital To Coast Cycle Challenge on Sunday 30th June 2013, starting at The London Eye and finishing at Brighton Pier.  Lex will be riding as part of a four man team, The Crazy Wheeler’s, with his Dad, his Uncle and his sixteen year old cousin.  The Wheelers were inspired to take part in the fundraising challenge after losing a family member to Pancreatic Cancer suddenly last year.

     Lex hopes his 75 mile journey will raise awareness of the vital need to fund research into cures for all types of cancer.  In 2004, when he was just four years old, Lex was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and underwent a gruelling three years of continual chemotherapy treatment.  Despite great discomfort and long stays in hospital Lex continued to ride his bike regularly and believes that fresh air and exercise helped him to stay fit and keep positive throughout his illness and recuperation.  Lex remains in remission and celebrated the end of his treatment with a Star Wars Fundraising Party for Children With Cancer UK (registered charity no. 298405).

     During the last forty years survival rates for Childhood Leukaemia have risen from few to 80% whilst survival rates for Pancreatic Cancer remain low at just 3%.  Lex is now focusing his continuing fundraising efforts towards helping to beat a deadly disease in need of greater awareness.

     You can read about Lex’s bike ride challenge and support him with an immediate donation via the link below.  If everyone who reads his story shares it and donates £1 Lex will be well on his way to reaching his fundraising target.
