Star Jodie Comer Discussing Playing Rey’s Mom


Star Wars fans have been wondering about Rey’s parents ever since we met the heroine in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It wasn’t until recently that star Jodie Comer discussed her role as Rey’s mother and she had nothing but positive things to say about the experience.

“It was spectacular,” Comer detailed to Entertainment Weekly. “But I had to keep that a secret for a long, long, long time.”

Looking at the production and development of the film, Comer went on to discuss how amazed she was by it all.

“Hearing the detail that goes into the makeup and the costumes, it was so eye-opening,” the actor admitted. “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 kinds of figures, their mouths move and they were remote-controlled and there was so much there that you didn’t have to imagine.”

Comer probably won’t be back in any Star War movies or series moving forward as it seems that Rey’s journey wrapped up in the final entry of the Skywalker Saga, but it was fun to hear her thoughts on the production and cameo as Rey’s mom.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
