Daisy Ridley: Carrie Fisher Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Scenes Were “Difficult.”
While filming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Daisy Ridley found is “it was definitely difficult” filming the General Leia scenes in the upcoming Star Wars film. Read on…
CelebNMovies247.com has the latest on Daisy Ridley who plays Rey in the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Carrie Fisher passed away in December 2016 but director J.J. Abrams has used footage of the star as General Leia from ‘The Force Awakens’ in his final film.
General Leia had a lot of scenes with Daisy’s Rey in ‘The Force Awakens’, so the 27-year-old star had a number of “emotional” moments during filming.
Daisy Ridley said:
It was definitely difficult. It was emotional doing it, because you’re also weirdly picturing her. You’re not picturing how the scene is going to be. It’s really sad. And it’s going to be really sad. But also, it’s amazing that they have all this footage that is woven into the story in such a strange way.
Daisy didn’t speak ‘Star Wars’ legend Mark Hamill about Carrie’s death, though she did speak with her daughter, Billie Lourd, who plays Lieutenant Connix, about her tragic loss.
She told Britain’s GQ magazine:
I would never presume. Mark’s known her for 40 years…I had a conversation with Billie about it. I just wanted to ask Billie how she was doing.
The scene was me being very sad. Let’s just say it was not hard to be upset in that scene.
A tearful Daisy added:
I did this embarrassing speech that I can’t remember. It was so sad.
Daisy won’t rule out ever returning as Rey in another film, but doesn’t think it will be a possibility.
It felt like an end… I can’t actually imagine it right now… I don’t know what’ll happen in however many years.
Ridley has NOT seen the finished film yet, though she is not expecting everyone to like it.
There are people that are never going to f***in’ like it and there’s no other way around it,” she says. ”But I think people are going to feel like this was made with a lot of love and JJ worked really hard to tie up nine films. It’s impossible to make everyone happy.
Some of the s–t people have said to me about ‘Star Wars’ you wouldn’t believe. I have had people say to me, ‘I mean, it wasn’t a great film, was it?’ I’m like, that’s just bad manners. That’s f—in’ not nice.
