Daisy Ridley says she was misquoted in Rolling Stone piece, denies she's done with 'Star Wars'
You had to know this was coming.
After Rolling Stone dropped its massive Star Wars feature last week there were many rustled jimmies over comments made by Daisy Ridley about the future of her character, Rey.
The franchise's mysterious lead was quoted in the piece saying she "didn't know what I was signing on for."
"I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films," Ridley said. "So in my head, it's three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out."
Soon came headlines making it sound as if Ridley couldn't wait to be done with the series, which undoubtably led to an awkward press week directed by Lucasfilm.
Speaking with comicbook.com, Ridley set the record straight.
"Misquoted. I was misquoted," said Ridley. "I was asked — by the way, at the end of a very long day, at the end of a very long shoot — I was asked how I felt going forward. And I said, in my mind, the story finishes at Episode IX. To me, Star Wars is in threes. [Episodes] 4, 5, 6; 1, 2, 3; 7, 8, 9. So, for me, that's what I was signing on to; VII, VIII, IX. So that's really what I was answering. And I think, for now- I'm not saying forever.
"Obviously, Rey will always be Rey… and obviously I don't know what happens in Episode IX, or even if I'm in it. But for now I think it would be- To me, IX was always the end of this chapter. So, it's not me going 'I don't want to.' It's just that's what I always pictured."
There you have it. A little spin, a little further explanation.
