Star Wars: Daisy Ridley Admits Recording For Galaxy's Edge Was 'Stressful'

The idea of being a part of a Disneyland attraction is certainly an exciting one and Daisy Ridley certainly thinks it's amazing that her character Rey has been integrated into Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge. However, the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker actress also admitted that recording for the theme park was somehow "stressful."

Ridley's recent guesting on the Happy Sad Confused podcast certainly had several revelations about Episode IX but we also learned that the Ophelia star herself had to record for Rey's appearance at the Disneyland attraction. Unfortunately, the timing for Galaxy's Edge resulted in a busy holiday season for Ridley.

"That was really hard. We were shooting, and the only time we could do it was like on a shoot day or something. I was really tired. I think it must have been before Christmas. Like I worked a lot of days on that film. I was really tired and it was super technical. I could not for the life of me remember the lines. It was really stressful. But now I'm in a theme park," she said.

While she had no problem finishing what she had to do for Galaxy's Edge, there was a time when Ridley almost decided to drop out of the Star Wars Universe for good. She confessed that she almost called it quits while working on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

"It was pretty horrid. It was really scary. I felt just sick and I didn't really know anyone yet. It takes me a really long time to settle down with people. And I do remember being behind the speeder and there were loads of people there and somebody had an umbrella over me and even that, like, ‘Oh someone's holding an umbrella over you? OK.' And I remember thinking, ‘I can't do it.' Like I can't do this, this is not right," Ridley said.

Luckily, Ridley changed her mind about quitting and the rest is, as they say, history.

Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is currently open at Disneyland. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20.
