    Daisy Ridley says she can’t see herself doing comedy, now that her “Star Wars” days are behind her. Additionally, even though horror movies terrify her, she wants to be in one.

    “I want to be a working actor, and I am currently unemployed, so I’m not succeeding right now,” Ridley jokes. “I just want to be in good things and work with great people.

    Ridley’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” hits theaters on Friday.
