In a recent interview with USA Today, Daisy Ridley discusses working with Andy Serkis, Rey’s thoughts on Porgs, and much more.
Ridley discusses Rey’s test from Snoke
“He looks mental. Snoke is an evil guy, if you can call him a guy,” says Ridley.
Last Jedi’s trailer shows Rey screaming under Snoke torture. Ridley says the torture scenes were long enough to leave her hoarse. “It was painful. My throat hurt after that one,” says Ridley.
“Snoke is one of those tests for Rey,” she adds. “And when I say testing, it’s the worst use of testing ever.”
Daisy on Kylo and Rey scenes:
“These are two people who represent two very different sides of life, good and evil,” she says. “That’s going to be explored more in this.”
Daisy also discusses Rey’s feelings on Porgs:
“Rey, honestly, is too wrapped up in her own journey to pay attention to porgs,” says Ridley. “Which is a sad thing.”
I am extremely excited to see what’s going on with Snoke and Rey. We obviously only saw a little of Snoke in The Force Awakens, so he’s easily one of my most anticipated characters in The Last Jedi.
