Few film series are as adored as the Star Wars series.

The galaxy far, far away holds a unique place in the hearts of many moviegoers since it was a part of their childhoods for generations. Although landing a part in a space opera is a dream job for performers, it also carries some pressure. Daisy Ridley, who recently got married, is all too aware of this because she made her career portraying Rey in three distinct films. Additionally, Ridley recently disclosed that she experienced impostor syndrome while filming the sequel movies.

The nine-film Skywalker Saga as we know it came to an end with Daisy Ridley’s character Rey as the star of the sequel trilogy to Star Wars. In addition to lengthy press tours marketing the movies, she had a ton of emotional and physical labor to undertake at that time. She suffered with feeling like an imposter despite receiving widespread praise for her performances, particularly when filming The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, it turns out. Ridley recently spoke with THR about her experience, saying:

On the third film I was very present. On the first two, I was like, ‘Oh my God, they’ve chosen the wrong person. Oh my God, I’m gonna screw it all up. Oh my God, oh my God.’ And then by the third one, I had little time to pause. I still had moments of feeling like, ‘Oh my God, am I terrible?’

You now have it. It might come as a shock to learn that Daisy Ridley battled in this fashion throughout the first two Star Wars films given how inconsistent her performances look in all three of the films. However, she eventually overcame her struggles and was able to focus considerably better when working on J.J. Abrams’ The Rise of Skywalker.

Daisy Ridley has probably had some time to think back on her experience portraying the new hope of the Jedi since The Rise of Skywalker was released in theaters back in 2019. After years of Star Wars-related stardom, she’s been keeping busy with considerably smaller ventures, which is probably refreshing. Nevertheless, some admirers are hoping she’ll play the same part again someday.

Later on in the same interview, Daisy Ridley went into further detail about how working on The Rise of Skywalker was so different from her previous two Star Wars movies. It appears that having the same cast and crew work on the trilogy played a significant role in making her feel protected. As Ridley put it:

But I also knew that I worked really hard and that I was in a very safe environment with a lot of people that I already knew. So I felt very comfortable, and I really made an effort to be present every day. And it was my favorite filming experience for that reason because I was really taking in everything, and none of the joy and excitement had gone. So I felt like I could breathe a little easier. I mean, I loved all of them, but it was nice to really be in my body for that last filming experience.

As was already said, some fans are already hopeful that sequel stars like Daisy Ridley and her co-stars John Boyega and Oscar Isaac will return to their iconic roles in the Star Wars universe. This is partially due to the absence of new Star Wars films after the conclusion of the Skywalker Saga. There have been a few projects announced, but it’s not obvious exactly when things will change.

It seems like anything is possible with Star Wars spreading on the big screen (soon) and through series in Disney+. So, if the right idea arises, perhaps it will motivate people like Daisy Ridley and company to go back to the far-off galaxy. Crossing fingers and lightsabers.

Currently, Disney+ is offering free streaming of the complete Star Wars saga. The Star Wars film directed by Taika Waititi is anticipated to be the first to hit theaters, although the release date may alter.
