Daisy Ridley Says She Won't Be Playing Rey Again After Episode IX

You know I love Daisy Ridley. Disney and co. picked a fantastic actress to carry the Star Wars franchise into the future. Her role as Rey could have easily deviated into uninvolving territory but she's kept us intrigued and glued on her in both "The Force Awaken" and "The Last Jedi," but don't expect her to continue on as Rey after the saga concludes in 2019 with JJ Abrams' “Star Wars: Episode IX.”
“No,” she tells Rolling Stone "For me, I didn’t really know what I was signing on to. 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." When asked if a door is still left open she says “No, no, no. 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. So in my head, it’s three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out.”
