Daisy Ridley has added even more intrigue to the mystery of Rey’s parents as she’s revealed that she thought “a lot was answered in The Force Awakens” regarding her character’s heritage.
Ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit screens last year, many have wondered who Rey’s parents are. But surprisingly, Ridley has admitted to Time Out that she thought the answer was obvious enough that no one would be questioning it:
“I thought a lot was answered in The Force Awakens. Then after the screening I went for a drink with my agent and everyone, and we were chatting away and I realised that oh, in their minds it’s not answered at all!”
Most fans have presumed that Luke Skywalker is Rey’s father which would be the simplest answer. However, the likes of Han Solo, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Keobi and Jyn Erso have all also been in the mix.
Unfortunately, we won’t find out for another year when Episode VIII hits theaters on December 16, 2017.
