Daisy Ridley Says it Was Fun to Play Dark Rey in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker – SW

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker revealed in its first trailer a scene that shocked fans. The scene shows Rey, clad in dark robes, opening up a double-bladed, red lightsaber. Ridley told Adoro Cinema that she enjoyed getting to play Rey’s Dark Side, though she wouldn’t reveal any details about how that comes to happen. “It’s fun to play someone’s best version, and then the worst,” Daisy Ridley told Adoro Cinema and other journalists in Los Angeles. “It’s an amazing thing to do as an actress, but we can’t do it often. … I felt very good. That’s the most I can say, unfortunately.”

Ridley also revealed that filming another scene in the film left the crew visibly moved. “There was a scene that touched me a lot,” Ridley said. “It was our last day shooting in Jordan and the natural light was fading. And it was so exciting. It was just a short scene, we filmed very fast, but the crew was shaken in a way I had not seen before. And I thought, ‘My God, if this is people’s immediate reaction when the scene isn’t even ready, imagine what it will be like to see it in the movies, with the John Williams soundtrack and all that.’”
