With news that there are at least ten more years of Star Wars films planned, it’s surely coming as a bit of disappointment hearing that breakout actress Daisy Ridley isn’t totally keen on continuing her character’s role past the three movie storyline she originally signed up for.
“For me, I didn't really know what I was signing on to,” Ridley tells Rolling Stone. “I hadn't read the script, but from what I could tell, it was really nice people involved, so I was just like, 'Awesome.' Now I think I am even luckier than I knew then, to be part of something that feels so like coming home now.”
And though she’s loved joining the cast, that does not mean that she’s planning on continuing her role as Rey past Episode IX, which is a bit of a bummer for the Rey fans of the world.
“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,” Ridley explains. “So in my head, it's three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out.”
But if you're a fan of Ridley’s character, not all hope should be lost. When asked if she would consider returning to the saga in a reimagined way—hey, Carrie Fisher did it as Princess Leia!—there is hope for that.
“Who knows? I honestly feel like the world may end in the next 30 years, so, if in 30 years we are not living underground in a series of interconnected cells … then sure. Maybe,” Ridley says.
So we're not losing all hope—at least yet.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be in theaters December 15.
