Daisy Ridley will make her Oscars debut on Sunday, when she serves as a presenter at the Academy Awards. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens star is experiencing some jitters, however, ahead of the big day. She says in an interview with E! News she plans to sandpaper the bottoms of her shoes before the event.

"I don't want to ice skate down the red carpet. Imagine how awful that would be?" Daisy Ridley explains. "I'm thinking about all the worst possibilities that could happen—like, I could trip or say something wrong or trip as I'm walking up to the stage. Hopefully, it will all be fine."

In preparation for the Oscars, Daisy Ridley did what all celebrities do--she chose her attire.

"I looked at a few dresses, I picked my favorite and that's the one I'm wearing," she says. "It's a gorgeous dress and gorgeous jewelry and I'll have people making me up, making me look better."

There won't be much of a break for Daisy Ridley, who arrived in the U.S. from the U.K. on Monday. She will head back to the U.K. the morning after the Oscars, where she will return to filming Star Wars: Episode VIII, reprising her role as Rey.

"It's a weird little break," she says, "but it's very exciting."

It will be very exciting to see Daisy Ridley presenting at the Academy Awards on Sunday, too. Will you be tuning in to see the Star Wars: The Force Awakens star?
