Daisy Ridley On Working With Mark Hamill In Star Wars: Episode VIII

HOLLYWOOD, CA (KBCW) – From her walk down the red carpet to her Oscar presentation with Dev Patel, Daisy Ridley made a big impression with many at the recent Academy Awards. Now the actress who burst on the screen as Rey in the latest Star Wars movie “The Force Awakens” is glowing with admiration for co-star and Star Wars icon, Mark Hamill.

In a recent interview, Ridley tells MTV News how cool it is to work with the Oakland-born Hamill. “Me and Mark have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing,” she tells MTV News. “When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of Episode: VIII, it was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people. He’s amazing to rehearse with, and I’m very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff.”

Although, it’s not at all a reveal, one can speculate that having the two working so closely together, may possibly mean that Luke may be Rey’s father. But once again, that’s all just speculation.

No matter, we all will find out come December 15, 2017 when Star Wars: VIII releases in theaters.
