Daisy Ridley Leaving ‘Star Wars’ After Episode 9

Someone doesn’t like making money. Daisy Ridley talked to Rolling Stone about the Star Wars movies. During her interview, she dropped a semi-bombshell that she doesn’t plan to stick around in a galaxy far, far away (is that how it goes?).

As far as Ridley is concerned, the future of Rey is pretty much set. She doesn’t want to play the character after the next movie. “No,” she says flatly. “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.”

…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.”

I’ll chalk this up to her not knowing how Hollywood works. The whole point is to get into superhero universes, franchises, syndication if you’re on TV and have constant streams of income coming in.

You know how hard it is as an actress to get parts? You won the lottery and now you want out. I can’t. Seriously. There’s no “art” in Hollywood. Only cash and cocaine.

If Daisy doesn’t want the plum role of Rey, there’s a thousand other actresses who’ll gladly take it. AND they’ll suck a dick to do it. Hold on. *takes call from legal department*

Oh…guess that’s not allowed anymore. Well…FUUUUUCK!
