Daisy Ridley not cool with romance for 'Star Wars' character Rey

Star Wars Last Jedi Rey Leia Daisy Ridley not cool with romance for 'Star Wars' character Rey

Director Colin Trevorrow has left the "Star Wars" saga, but not before he left a strong impression on Daisy Ridley. Like when people talk about Jedi and stuff like that I remember having a conversation with one of our executive producers on VII, Michelle, and I said, 'But surely Leia's a Jedi, because she's force sensitive and she's challenged.' She's not challenged in the same ways as Luke, but like she's doing stuff for the good and everything like that.

Ridley wanted to know from Trevorrow what happens to Rey in the final movie of the trilogy.

REUTERS/Peter NichollsDaisy Ridley arrives for the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Britain. "But I think... for me, it doesn't have to be romantic love". "I think it's wonderful to have relationships that are not romantic". I believe a relationship between two friends can be romantic in their gestures and their intimacies. We can still learn a lot about two characters through a very close friendship and just because Rey is a girl and Poe is a boy doesn't mean they have to get together.

Check out the entire interview on MTime, then let us know if what you think Rey should do.

According to "The Last Jedi" director and writer Rian Johnson, things could still change for Rey.

She first portrayed the scavenger in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens, when her character befriended fellow Brit John Boyega's stormtrooper-turned-resistance soldier, Finn, and both reprised their roles for the recently-released The Last Jedi, in which Rey crosses paths with pilot fighter Poe Dameron, played by Oscar Isaac. Here, the actress outlined why she believes Rey's relationship with Poe should remain platonic.
