Killing Eve star Jodie Comer has broken her silence over her surprise Star Wars role, as Rey’s mother in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
The actress made her mainstream movie debut as Rey’s mother in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, who was murdered alongside Rey’s Palpatine clone father after protecting a young Rey from her grandfather’s evil clutches.
The character appeared in a minute-long flashback during a fight sequence between Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and speaking recently, Jodie opened up about her experience on the movie for the first time.
“It was spectacular,” Comer told Entertainment Weekly. “But I had to keep that a secret for a long, long, long time.”
Revealing she spent just a day filming The Rise of Skywalker and describing her brief role as “the most peculiar, incredible experience”, the Free Guy actress said she was surprised by the great attention to detail on-set, having expected heavier use of green screens and visual effects.
“Hearing the detail that goes into the makeup and the costumes, it was so eye-opening,” she added.
“Speaking about green screen and visual effects, when I got Star Wars, I was like, ‘They’ll probably be a lot that I don’t see.’ But these kind of figures, their mouths move and they were remote-controlled and there was so much there that you didn’t have to imagine.”
Jodie Comer’s new movie, Free Guy, hits cinemas in August.
