Daisy Ridley went from being an unknown actress to a Hollywood superstar overnight with her portrayal of Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And now it seems she no longer wants to continue this role after IX has finished filming.
With Rian Johnson being signed on for 3 more Star Wars films, which will tell a tale away from the main Skywalker storyline, it may already seem like the end of the road for Rey’s involvement. However, this is not yet certain, and with the new characters all so young there is still a lot that could be done with them.
In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Ridley’s response when talking about playing Rey after Episode IX, was “No, no, no. I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films. So in my head, it’s three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out.”
Ridley portrays Rey for the 2nd time in The Last Jedi which is in UK cinemas December 14th.
