“She was talking about how she wanted to go to space ever since she was young so that was nice to find out.”
She added: “Being on the red carpet was really overwhelming, there’s a lot of smoke and lights, big beaming lights and there was a load of noise, people screaming.
“It was really, really cool, it was so exciting just to be there.”
