We present our interviews for Disney’s Young Woman and the Sea, starring Daisy Ridley and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and telling the extraordinary true story of Trudy Ederle, the first woman to successfully swim the English Channel.

Daisy Ridley stars as the accomplished swimmer who was born to immigrant parents in New York City in 1905. Through the steadfast support of her older sister and supportive trainers, she overcame adversity and the animosity of a patriarchal society to rise through the ranks of the Olympic swimming team and complete the staggering achievement – a 21-mile trek from France to England.

Based on the book, Joachim Rønning directs the movie which also stars Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Stephen Graham, Kim Bodnia, Christopher Eccleston, and Glenn Fleshler.

The movie will open in select cinemas on May 31, 2024. Colin Hart and Abigail Shii were on the red carpet, here are their interviews.
