Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Reveals Rey's True Parents - Here's Who Plays Them

  • Popsugar
It looks like the cat's out of the bag: we finally learn the truth about Rey's parents in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (again). No, they weren't mere junk traders who sold her off for drinking money, as Kylo Ren said in The Last Jedi. Nope. In a retcon move from J.J. Abrams, Rey's parents chose to be nobodies, coming from a rather elite family in a galaxy far, far away. So, of course, their brief screen time should only be occupied by top-notch talent. Here's the scoop on Rey's heritage, plus a look at the actors who play her parents: two non-nobodies named Jodie Comer and Billy Howle.

So here's the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth: Rey is actually - drum roll please - a Palpatine. It's a contentious choice for sure, especially after Rian Johnson showed that anyone anywhere could wield the Force.

‘The Pass’ review: “Exceptional, wonderfully executed cinema”

The Pass review: A exceptional piece of modern and simply set-up, though hugely powerful filmmaking.

The Pass review, Paul Heath, December 2016.

The Pass review

Celebrated short filmmaker Ben A. Williams makes his feature directorial debut with this simple, though effective and extremely powerful drama The Pass, pairing Russell Tovey opposite rising star Arinzé Kene.

The film, scripted by John Donnelly, whose TV work includes the likes of Utopia and Glue, is told in three very distinct parts; three hotel rooms at various times over the course of ten years. Tovey plays Jason, a professional football player who has come through the ranks from the grassroots academy of a London football club, where he has been since the age of 8. We are introduced to him in a Romanian hotel room on the eve of a huge Champion’s League football match along with fellow player and lifelong friend Ade (Kene), his

The Living And The Dead: the BBC's new supernatural drama

google+

We chatted to the writer and cast of new BBC supernatural period drama starring Colin Morgan, by the co-creator of Life On Mars...

On the wall of Ashley Pharoah’s office hangs the bullet-riddled driver-side door of a red 1983 Audi Quattro. It’s a set-souvenir from Ashes To Ashes, the time-travel police drama he co-created to follow Life On Mars. Somewhere nearby is a sepia photograph of a young man looking justifiably disturbed by the sack-headed, creepily masked figures who surround him. That’s Pharoah’s souvenir from the set of The Living And The Dead, an eerie period supernatural drama launching in 'box-set' form on BBC iPlayer tomorrow.

Set in 1894 Somerset, The Living And The Dead is in the tradition of the dark English pastoral. It pits the rural customs and rites of an ancient way of life against the modern ingress of industry and technology.

The Living And The Dead: BBC supernatural show to debut as iPlayer box set

facebook

twitter

google+

All 6 episodes of The Living And The Dead, from the co-creator of Life On Mars, will debut this Friday the 17th of June on BBC iPlayer...

In a repeat of last year's successful online-box-set-then-traditional-broadcast-release (snappier name required) of Peter Kay's Car Share, the BBC is launching its first original drama 'box-set'.

All six episodes of spooky new period drama The Living And The Dead, created by Life On Mars' Ashley Pharoah and starring Merlin's Colin Morgan and Glue's Charlotte Spencer, will be available to watch from this Friday the 17th of June on BBC iPlayer. The episodes will then receive a weekly airing starting from Tuesday the 28th of June at 9pm.

It's a smart move from the BBC, one that will transform iPlayer into more than simply a catch-up service. Traditional viewers won't lose out on week-by-week viewings, while those more used to gulping down entire series whenever it suits them can do just that.

The Living And The Dead is in the tradition of the dark English pastoral, a creepy countryside tale of the strange goings-on that beset a young psychologist (Morgan) and his photographer wife (Spencer) when they move back to his childhood West Country home in 1894.

We'll have more for you on the show later this week.
