WUSA9 – In the end, the movie’s biggest secret was — SPOILER WARNING — that Han Solo (Harrison Ford) meets his demise, seemingly ending Ford’s involvement with the franchise. So, what was it like on the actor’s last day playing the iconic character?
“I remember going in the day he and Adam [Driver] were doing that scene and there was a real somberness in the air,” Ridley recalled. “It was very strange and poignant. But the last day he made a great speech, and it was really nice because he’s really great at speeches.”
“He really put into words what we were all thinking,” she continued. “There was a huge amount of appreciation. I think he — I don’t want to speak for him — but I think he enjoyed it maybe, not more than he thought he would, but it was so enjoyable, the whole thing. And I think that took people by surprise.”
You can relive Han Solo’s final moments and all of Star Wars: The Force Awakens when it hits DVD and Blu-Ray on April 5 and digital HD on April 1.
