Speaking to Rolling Stone in a lengthy profile for The Last Jedi, Ridley – who became an overnight star with The Force Awakens – revealed she does not want to play the character beyond Episode IX.
“No,” she told the publication, explaining, “For me, I didn’t really know what I was signing on to. I hadn’t read the script, but from what I could tell, it was really nice people involved, so I was just like, ‘Awesome.’ Now I think I am even luckier than I knew then, to be part of something that feels so like coming home now.”
When asked if she might come around to playing Rey again in the future, she reiterated, “No, no, no. I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films. So in my head, it’s three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out.”
