Speaking at the MTV Movie Awards, Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens actress Daisy Ridley shared some interesting facts about her character Rey and the next movie in the Star Wars series.
Concerning Star Wars: Episode VIII that is currently filming Daisy told that the it is way “darker” than the Episode VII. That’s the same thing that John Boyega (Finn) said, but nobody explains why it will be that way. They only told us about their excitement.
Ridley also responded to the theories that Felicity Jones' character Jyn Erso in Rogue One is Rey's mom.
"I'm not being funny you guys, but just because she's white and got brown hair… it doesn't mean she's my mom," - Daisy said.
In fact, she actually knows who are Rey’s parents. But she keeps it in secret.
"I think the amazing thing about Episode VII is that Finn and Rey don't come from anywhere and they find a place," - she said. "To me, it's funny that people think [Rey's lineage] is so important because I guess it is. But I don't really think it is because regardless of where you come from, where you go is the thing...you're moving forward, and you can make a family; you can find people who you love”.
"And so I think the progression Rey is making is and the people she's meeting and the relationships she's making now are kind of more important than where she comes from. But that's just me."
And the frankest thing we’ve heard from Daisy Ridley was…
"I don't know if I am a Jedi… I don't think I am. We've had this debate as to whether Leia is because she uses her Force powers. Just because she's not like, oh I'm going on an adventure like Luke doesn't make her any less Forceful."
You can watch Rogue One: Official Teaser Trailer, the movie hits cinemas this December, while Episode VIII follows in December 2017.
