Daisy Ridley: Great Jedi (Mediocre Baker)
Star Wars Notebook: Sunday, March 14
Oh, she also mentioned being open to returning to Rey at some point, too (and mourning the end of The Skywalker Saga as well).
Your Homework: A Great Jedi
But first things first, let’s get you caught up:
So, in the upcoming issue of Empire — as reported by GameSpot.com — Ridley spoke a bit more positively about returning to Rey.
Moving On. Moving On.
She said, “I mean, never say never…”
Ridley explained, saying she recently revisited all the Harry Potter movies, and saw Rupert Grint say he’d return to Ron Weasley. Then she was blown away to see Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker return to Star Wars via The Mandalorian.
However, Ridley said of Rey:
“I’m always open to a revisit… But also the beautiful thing is it’s this wonderful, huge universe with all of these stories that have yet to be told. I think there’s a lot of cool things to be made before any potential revisit.”
And, Daisy also spoke about her love of the Star Wars filming process.
“I don’t think it’ll ever feel properly like goodbye because it’s such a wonderful little web of people. It’s a really nice club to be a part of. Plus, I had such a good time. I loved my experience. In terms of revisiting the character, I think that’s a bye-bye for now.”
In the interim, however; Ridley is promoting her film Chaos Walking and, well, baking – badly.

Let’s just say, Ridley’s “pet peeve” project went into the toilet.
HuffPost.com’s Elyse Wanshel posted:
It seems that Daisy Ridley is not the kind of person who gets flushed by embarrassment.
[Recently] the “Star Wars” actor participated in the annual fundraising episode for “The Great British Bake Off.” The show, called “The Great Celebrity Bake Off for Stand Up To Cancer,” features four British celebrities whipping up some tasty treats for a good cause…
It’s safe to say that the force was not with her when she produced this pitiful potty cake.

Thank The Maker, Ms. Ridley has Rey to fall back on.
