Daisy Ridley on her Rise of Skywalker stunts, that Carrie hug

In an interview with USA Today, Daisy Ridley talks about Ophelia, The Rise of Skywalker, IX fan theories and more. On the stunt seen in the trailer:

I had learnt a version of it, but there was a risk of breaking ankles so I couldn’t do the full thing. But there’s a bit in the film where you see me upside down. It’s funny because I did 95% of my (stunts), but that’s the one thing I didn’t fully do. People are like, “Oh, that’s so cool,” and I’m like, “Ugh.”

And with Vulture, she discusses self care and the Leia hug we see in the trailer.

She was actually whispering, “This is a fucking long hug.”[Laughs.] I was trying to do my acting, like, “Oh my god, Carrie!” There wasn’t any discussion about what we were gonna do.
