While " Star Wars" fans anxiously await Rey's fate in the epic finale of the Skywalker saga, actress Daisy Ridley said she was even stunned by what made the final cut.
"I was very surprised when J.J. [Abrams] showed me the trailer before they released it," she told "Good Morning America" about the scene where she is wielding a red lightsaber, the weapon used by those dedicated to the dark side of the Force. "I could not believe that it was in there. It was so exciting."

But when asked point blank if her character goes to the dark side, Ridley said, "She is a character who is struggling with two pulls to the light and dark and that's explored further."
"But where she ends up, you'll have to wait and see," she teased.
Details of the final film have been held extremely close to the vest, but after Abrams told "GMA" that a copy of the script wound up on eBay, fans questioned who in the cast was the culprit.

"Apparently people assume it was me," Ridley said. "I'm not going to throw the person under the bus, but there is someone -- potentially coming up on the show this week."
Ridley's character battles Kylo Ren, played by Adam Driver, in an epic seaside fight in the final film.
Ridley, 27, said the scene took six days to film in freezing temperatures, with water cannons being fired at them throughout the filming.
"I said to myself before I wasn't going to complain and it was the most kudos I ever got from the crew," she said. "The reaction while we were doing it was so big."
Ridley said she "can't believe that it happened" after looking back on her journey with this monumental movie.
"It's gone so quickly, sort of in the grand scheme of things, and it's now the end," she said.
But the actress already seems to be singing a new tune for her next career move.
"I would love to do a musical," she said. "If I keep saying it hopefully someone will give me a part in a musical."
She added, "Singing in front of people is terrifying -- but I'm ready for that."
The final chapter, "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker," hits theaters nationwide on Dec. 20.
