Daisy Ridley recently talked with MTV News about working with Mark Hamill on Star Wars: Episode VIII. Ridley said she’s been rehearsing with Hamill, and is excited to pick up where The Force Awakens left off: “Me and Mark have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing,” Ridley said “When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of VIII, it was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people. He’s amazing to rehearse with, and I’m very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff. It’s such a good story. Seriously. Luke is so cool in this one. Really.”
