Daisy Ridley Talks About Shooting Scenes With Andy Serkis as Snoke

By: Dominic Jones

One of the standout moments in the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the quick shot near the end where Supreme Leader Snoke is seen torturing Rey.  There has been lots of speculation about the context of that scene, and now Rey actress Daisy Ridley has a few more small tidbits about the scene for fans to chew on.  Ridley was interviewed by USA Today about The Last Jedi, and she described what it was like filming those scenes with Andy Serkis, who plays Snoke, and what those scenes represent for Rey.

"He looks mental. Snoke is an evil guy, if you can call him a guy," says Ridley.

Last Jedi's trailer shows Rey screaming under Snoke torture. Ridley says the torture scenes were long enough to leave her hoarse. "It was painful. My throat hurt after that one," says Ridley.

"Snoke is one of those tests for Rey," she adds. "And when I say testing, it's the worst use of testing ever."

Ridley also spoke briefly about the film's other main villain, Kylo Ren.  Ever since the trailer where the final shot indicates that Rey and Kylo will at least consider joining forces, there have been many questions about the connection between the two of them.  Ridley very carefully told USA Today, "These are two people who represent two very different sides of life, good and evil. That's going to be explored more in this."

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th.  The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley as Rey, Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Carrie Fisher as Leia Organa, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Amilyn Holdo, Benicio Del Toro as DJ, and Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata.
