Daisy Ridley Explains Why Star Wars' Rey Isn’t A Mary Sue


Daisy Ridley speaks to MTV about Rey's 'Star Wars' Mary Sue label and why Ridley quit social media.

The story is too old to be commented.

wow! What an explanation!

indeed. She did not explained anything. lol

But really, the only way her character wouldn't be a Mary Sue is if on the second movie they show something like she being trained as jedi when she was a child but to protect her they did some jedi mind trick on her and made her forget or something. Otherwise her character has Mary Sue written all over it, she's the embodiment of it.

Abrams and the writers are responsible for this

What a joke. Typical Mary Sue behavior to deny her Mary sueness

She was the worst part of the sterile movie.

Whoa, whoa, whoa...when did "Mary Sue name-callers" become an actual thing? Bringing up a lazy character arc (by the writers) shouldn't be personified in such a way as it is here. Granted, there's idiots on the internet who wouldn't be afraid to use this a crutch to hate on people who really liked Rey; however, you can't really conflate valid criticism with that nasty behavior. What about the likes of screenwriter Max Landis who got shit just for arguing that she was a Mary Sue? See? Go after the argument being made here, not the randoms making gross internet responses.

Not all of us pointing out Abrams' inconsistent writing are making personal attacks here. And I'll just add that Daisy Ridley's performance went a LONG in making her "Mary Sue-ness" very digestible to begin with.

If she's speaking to MTV then I don't want to hear it. TFA was creatively bankrupt, that was it's biggest issue. As bad as the prequels were, at least Lucas took chances.
