It’s the end of an era.
Daisy Ridley’s time as Rey is drawing to a close as we approach the final installment of the Skywalker saga.
In an interview with British GQ, Ridley said filming the final scene of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was upsetting.
“The scene was me being very sad,” she said. “Let’s just say it was not hard to be upset in that scene.”
Apparently the tears didn’t stop when J.J. Abrams called cut.
“I did this embarrassing speech that I can’t remember. It was so sad,” she added.
Asked whether she’d ever consider reprising the role of Rey in years to come, she gave an answer that some of you might not like.
“It felt like an end… I can’t actually imagine it right now… I don’t know what’ll happen in however many years,” she said.
At least it wasn’t an outright no.
