In a recent interview, Ridley tells MTV News how cool it is to work with the Oakland-born Hamill. “Me and Mark have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing,” she tells MTV News. “When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of Episode: 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.”

Although, it’s not at all a reveal, one can speculate that having the two working so closely together, may possibly mean that Luke may be Rey’s father. But once again, that’s all just speculation.
