In addition to Admiral Ackbar actor Tom Kane blasting Star Wars: The Last Jedi, while attending Star Wars Celebration, Daisy Ridley comes out against the toxic fandom group known as “Reylo,” who are a group of radical fans that apparently want not only Rey and Kylo Ren to be an item in the movies, but some of the fans – get this – also want Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver to be a couple in real life.
Daisy Ridley responds as follows to questioning if she knows about “Reylo” and if she is one:
“I do know about Reylo. I don’t know how I feel about it because everyone is talking about like the toxic thing of a relationship, when it’s essentially emotional … it’s a tricky road. I do feel like deep down Kylo like thinks what he is doing is right and he doesn’t think he’s wrong, but he has also killed so many people. So I can’t really get behind it, no. In a personal way, you know?”
The interviewer then remarks there will be a lot of heartbroken fans out there, which sees Ridley try to smooth things over.
“Well, maybe there’s redemption, who knows? Maybe we explore it in the film,” she says.
