Daisy Ridley has expressed her interest in coming back to the Star Wars franchise. After offering a piece of advice to future female stars of the film series, the actress revealed that she is not closing her doors, in case they ask her to join the team again.
Ridley rose to fame for her role as Rey, one of the most prominent female characters in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. After 2019’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, there has been no follow-up on the narrative. The actress is taking this opportunity to tell the studio that she is willing to come back.
Daisy Ridley Is Willing To Return To The Star Wars Franchise
Daisy Ridley spoke with IMDb about her new project, Sometimes I Think About Dying, which is also set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. When asked if she will ever revisit the Star Wars franchise at some point, the actress answered:
“I mean, I’m open to a phone call. I’m looking for employment!”
Ridley also shared her proudest moment portraying Rey in the Star Wars saga:
“The thing that springs to mind is in The Force Awakens with Harrison Ford, little-known actor. He gave me the gun. I say something like, ‘I can take care of myself’ or something. I was so nervous that when he was doing it, I was like, ‘Oh my God, it’s Harrison Ford’. So, I was like, proud that I got through the thing and seemed fairly casual.”
The Star Wars actress also spoke with Variety and shared a piece of advice for women who will soon become part of the franchise:
“The world is a crazy place. It’s important to tune out the stuff. Not just with ‘Star Wars,’ but with everything, you try and be in the moment and enjoy what it is because life moves quickly.”
It seems that this comment from her is rooted in something more personal, as she herself has experienced criticism and backlash from fans. Despite all the fuss that happened in her career, Ridley is still optimistic to come back.
Will Daisy Ridley’s Rey Come Back To The Screens?
There have been rumors floating around about Ridley’s return after she revealed she had lunch at the Lucasfilm studio. She, later on, noted that there was “nothing saucy happening.” Is there a possibility for Rey to return to the franchise?
Fans saw the character survive imminent death against Palpatine and start her own Jedi Order. This sets up an opportunity for Ridley to reprise the role. The Disney+ world is exploring more ways to expand the narrative, and it would be interesting to see Rey’s version of the Jedi Order.
