Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley has revealed what it’s really like to work with Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill.
“Me and Mark have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing,” Ridley stated. “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.”
“It’s such a good story,” she added. “Seriously. Luke is so cool in this one. Really.”
Ridley expressed a certain tongue-in-cheek disappointment that Episode 8 will not just be her and Hamill together; that’s something anyone would enjoy, surely.
Ridley’s words however, tease a strong narrative between Rey and Hamill in the upcoming movie. Star Wars: Episode VIII is set for UK release 15 December 2017.
