We also hear from assistant fight coordinator Liang Yang, who impressively boasts that Ridley learned complicated moves quicker than expected. Some of these combinations were to be learned in three days time, but she caught on in a mere hour-and-a-half. “She’s a very quick learner,” Yang says. Gwendoline Christie, who plays Phasma, mentions in the video that this is the “hardest physical thing” she’s done yet. Boyega has similar sentiments, saying that the training is “rigorous in a great way” and that the stunt team is “very disciplined.”
