Daisy Ridley is all Rey, all the time.

In a new video, fans get a behind-the-scenes look at the Star Wars: The Force Awakens soundtrack's development. As composer John Williams provides insight on the lives, quirks, and personality traits of the characters that helped him craft each song, Ridley is seen reacting to her own character Rey's theme.

In a word, she's pleased.

Williams took elements of the older films' musical themes, combining them with melodies befitting new characters like Rey and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

While describing "Rey's Theme," he said the music "wasn't heroic in the sense of a hero," but instead the song was meant to convey an "adventure" that would resolve itself in triumph:

"When you first meet her, she's alone, she's been without her parents," he said. "I felt a lot of empathy for that girl. I think 'Rey's Theme' needs to illustrate that."
