Star Wars: The Last Jedi actress Daisy Ridley was apprehensive about reprising her character Rey.
The British actress, 25, revealed that she was nervous about stepping back into the role as it was ‘nuts’ after the first film.
Speaking on ITV’s Lorraine on Wednesday morning, Daisy admitted she ‘didn’t know how she did it’ first time around.
She said: ‘I didn’t feel as comfortable going into it as the first film had just come out and it was nuts and I was like “aah I don’t know how to do this again”, like I don’t know how I did it first time around.
‘But I think by the end of it, I was like “now I have a sense of her” which was great… right by the end of it.’
The former Casualty star also revealed that the audience finds out what’s happening with her character as the same time Rey does.
She revealed: ‘Yeah it feels nice because I think as you’re watching the film you’re totally seeing where she’s going and why she’s asking the things she’s asking.
‘You’re learning the answers at the same time she is.’
Daisy also revealed that her off-screen relationship with Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) grew during filming as they were ‘getting to know each other’.
She said: ‘It’s fun to do too because Mark (Hamill) and I were getting to know each other as we were filming it, so there was a sense of building (a relationship) and I think we did it pretty chronologically.
‘There was a sense of our relationship building as the characters were.’
Daisy also admitted that she finds the mixed reactions to Star Wars films ‘wonderful’ because it means fans are passionate about it.
She said: ‘It must be so good to be in something that people get so incredibly excited about and it’s very nice to be part of something that’s very inclusive.

‘It’s just I think that everyone has opinions and everyone has their thoughts on where they think the story’s going to go and obviously it’s only going to go one direction, which may not be everyone’s direction.
‘But it’s just this wonderful thing, it ignites conversation and at conventions especially Star Wars conventions. It’s wonderful to be part of something like that.
‘They are ultra passionate fans.’
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released in cinemas on 14 December. Lorraine airs 8.30am weekdays on ITV.
