Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker concluded the main saga and wrapped up Ray’s three-film journey to Daisy Ridley. Nevertheless, despite portraying the lead heroine of the financially successful Star Wars sequel trilogy, Ridley was unable to find new work after completing his time with the franchise.


Ridley made his first appearance as Ray in JJ Abrams Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the heroine has since become one of the most well-known characters in the entire franchise. After joining superstardom, Daisy Ridley will star in notable projects such as Murder on the Orient Express and Peter Rabbit, resuming her roles in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and The Rise of Skywalker.

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Ridley mentioned that the break benefited her mental health after completing the Star Wars sequel. “When the film was released, I was like, ‘Oh my God.’ It was such a big chapter. And, strangely, not having much of the last few months … obviously it’s really good to work now, but not too much [at the time] I feel like I’ve spent the last five Have processed for years.

Forced to slow down, it was mentally good for me because [Star Wars] was a big thing in my life, “explained Ridley. However, Ridley said she was concerned when no new work was coming in at the beginning of the year, saying, “There were actually loads of things I auditioned at the beginning of the year and didn’t get any of them.” . I had that moment ‘Oh my God!’ And then thought ‘everything in its right time. “



Ridley said that “things started picking up” in late February and early March when she played the voice of the woman in the Xbox and PC game Twelve Minutes. Since then, Ridley has also been nominated in a crime thriller titled The Ice Banner Here From STX Entertainment. Based on Swedish author Camilla Grebe’s bestselling novel, the story follows a detective and psychological profiler who works to solve a case involving a woman who is found in the home of a prominent businessman.

While Ridley would next appear opposite Tom Holland in Chaos Walking, that project completed production, before The Rise of Skywalker debuted in theaters. Although Chaos Walking initially wrapped up production in November 2017, the reshoots did not begin until April 2019 due to Ridley’s commitment to the Star Wars franchise.
