The highly anticipated first standalone Star Wars movie Rogue One is about to come out and star Felicity Jones‘ life is about to change – but that doesn’t mean she needs any advice. 

While promoting The Eagle Huntress – a documentary she narrates and executive produces – the star of the Star Wars franchise revival Daisy Ridley had nothing but praise for the new leading lady about to fly into that famous far away galaxy. 

“Felicity needs no advice – she is a phenomenal actress and a wonderful human being,” Ridley, 24, told PEOPLE at the documentary’s New York City premiere on Thursday night. “She is very graceful and poised and probably speaks far less than I do more interestingly. She’s great!”

The Force Awakens actress also opened up about hanging out with Jones recently and noted that she’s as cool as she seems.

“We hung out a couple weeks ago and it was really, really nice,” the actress admits. “She’s just a super cool person, even away from Star Wars.”

Also starring Diego Luna, Forest Whitaker and Mads Mikkelsen, Rogue One flies into theaters Dec. 16.
