UPDATE: A comment below along with a post on Star Wars Episode 7 News both seem to point to Rey-Phillip’s daughter being the culprit here. It’s unfortunate that this incident may have led to his demotion.
UPDATE #2: The video is from here and is unrelated to Star Wars. Knowing that, the “darkside” photo is probably fake, too.
UPDATE #3: The photo relates to cosplay for the Japanese band DIR EN GREY. See this photo.

I wasn’t going to run with this, but there seems to be some merit to the whole thing.
Rey-Phillip Santos, a stunt performer who, according to IMDb, is a member of the production staff on Episode VII, recently made these two posts on Instagram.
The first, from 9 May, is tagged #daisyridley and #episodevii…
The second, from 21 May, is tagged #darkside…
So what do we have here? Is the first post a video of actual stuntwork? Is that really Daisy Ridley? (Surely it’s a stunt double… right?)
As for the second post, is that a Nightsister (as some are guessing)? Given the quality of the photo, it may in fact be a new photo of the Loch Ness Monster.
For that matter, is any of this actually real? If so, you can’t imagine Lucasfilm would be happy with Santos.
