Daisy Ridley admits that she has no idea if she will return to the Staw Wars franchise, but seemed apprehensive at appearing again after the "wonderful" ending to Rey's story.

The British actress was cast in the main role of Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and reprised it in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

The second two movies proved polarising among Star Wars fans, but Ridley's performance as Rey was considered to be a highlight of all three films in the trilogy.

With the Star Wars universe still going strong thanks to the links with Disney, Ridley was recently asked by The Hollywood Reporter if she would consider picking up the blue lightsaber again. She replied:

"Honestly, I have no idea. I feel like Rey's story ended in a wonderful way with the last film,

"It's already been an insane three years since that film came out. I feel like quite a different person. We've all gone through a massive change in the last three years, with lots of crazy things happening.

"So I really don't know if there are plans. I just don't know. But ultimately, I loved my experience, I loved what I got to do and I love the people I got to work with."

Ridley's Star Wars fears

The Star Wars prequel trilogy proved unpopular among die hard fans at the time, and although the stance has since softened on that, the doubters had their knives out when the sequel movies were announced.

With Star Wars being so beloved, there is huge pressure on anyone who attempts to continue the story, and Ridley did have feelings of imposter syndrome at points.

"On the third film, I was very present. On the first two, I was like, 'Oh my God, they've chosen the wrong person'," she continued.

"Oh my God, I'm gonna screw it all up. Oh my God, oh my God.

"And then by the third one, I had little time to pause. I still had moments of feeling like, 'Oh my God, am I terrible?'

"But I also knew that I worked really hard and that I was in a very safe environment with a lot of people that I already knew. So I felt very comfortable, and I really made an effort to be present every day."
