Leia's Star Wars: Last Jedi Force Powers Confused Daisy Ridley

Leia's Star Wars: Last Jedi Force Powers Confused Daisy Ridley

No, not even with Rey and Kylo Ren. Would she and Finn fall in love? Can Rey resist Poe? There's also the question regarding Rey's parents that was a bit fuzzy.

While some would criticize Ridley for her lack of knowledge, fans have to remember that the British actress is new to the franchise, and acting in a Star Wars film doesn't necessarily mean that an actor or actress knows everything there is to Lucasfilm's galaxy far, far away. In an interview with China's MTime, Ridley has another idea of just who she'd like Rey to romance.

But even beyond that, as Ridley herself pointed out, there's something lovely and wonderful about deep friendships.

"I haven't spoken to [Episode IX director] J.J". I don't think in films you always need a romantic relationship, and I think friend relationships can be romantic in their gestures and intimacy and all of that.

"I introduced him to Daisy Ridley at the SNL after-party, was the first time they had met, and saw a moment where she went, 'What happens to me?' And he went, 'You wanna do this now?' And she said, 'Yeah.' And they went off into a corner of the bar and he whispered into her ear and she started crying". The traditional role of the Star Wars trilogy main character is not to be half of the romantic role - and for all that Star Wars: The Last Jedi made nods to the prequels, we don't think that we have another Anakin and Padmé situation on our hands here.

"So I think - hopefully - if Rey and Poe get to have some scenes together and stuff, that there will be intimacy". Plus, if Rey is going to train as a Force user, it's possible she'll take the solitary route to focus on her training.

Throughout much of The Last Jedi, Finn's devotion to Rey persisted, putting her safety ahead of his allegiances to any organizations, all while he was unknowingly growing closer to Rose (Kelly Marie Tran).

If the new trilogy is seeking to break the mold of the previous films, having the main female lead not be a romantic character would be a definite change of pace.
