Daisy Ridley, the star of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, reveals that the film was her favourite to be a part of out of the entire sequel trilogy.
It’s not long now before fans will get to experience Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker for themselves and the culmination of the entire saga in the process.
Rey actress Daisy Ridley has starred in all three films but which of the movies was her favourite to make? Speaking to the Daily Mail, Ridley revealed that The Rise of Skywalker was her best experience:
“It’s the first time I’ve filmed more confident because I feel like there was nothing else I could’ve done. The third one for me was the best. It’s a big film for everyone. I did all of the emotions: I did frowns, I did smiles, it was the sort of biggest breadth, and I think that’s also why I had such a good time, because I got to do so much s**t – like, physically, emotionally – and I got to work with so many people.
“I get a bit scared because this year a lot of good things happened. You’re like, ‘Oh no, is the universe storing up something?’ But then I was like, ‘Well, f**k it if it is. I’d best enjoy this time.'”
Episode IX is certainly a big deal and the last Star Wars film we will get in cinemas for quite some time. Hopefully, audiences end up loving the movie as much as Ridley loved making it.
