Daisy Ridley says she won't play Rey anymore after 'Star Wars: Episode IX'
By Dave Trumbore, Collider
Daisy Ridley returns as Rey in Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", bringing her feisty, Force-wielding character back in a big way. But "Star Wars" fans better enjoy the on-screen moments with Ridley's Rey while they can, because after the concluding chapter of the current trilogy, she's probably done with the franchise.
In a wide-ranging piece from Rolling Stone, Ridley (among others) chatted about her experience with "Star Wars" so far and what awaits audiences in the upcoming installment. They're teases, mostly, with few hard nuggets of information to be found, as you might expect, but she dropped a curious confirmation that she's done with Rey once "Star Wars: Episode IX" is in the can. Now that doesn't mean that a reappearance decades down the road is out of the question, a la co-stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and the late Carrie Fisher, but that's too far away for Ridley to think about during a busy time in her young career.
