Daisy Ridley was ''surprised'' by 'The Last Jedi' storyline.

The 25-year-old actor has reprised her role as Rey in the upcoming fantasy science fiction movie, which is slated for release next month, and she has admitted she was taken aback by plot line because she felt the various stories in the franchise are finally ''coming together and connecting''.

Speaking on 'Good Morning America', the star said: ''I was more surprised with this one because there's a few storylines that [are] sort of coming together and connecting.

''Rey is trying to find out about herself and about the universe and those questions don't entirely fall to the good nor do they fall entirely to the bad. She's trying to do her own personal growth.''

The brunette beauty made her debut appearance in the popular film series in 2015 when she starred in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', but she believes she has come a long way since then as she is now ''proficient'' with using a lightsaber after training solidly for 12 months.

She explained: ''[I am] more proficient with a lightsaber. I never really trained before the first one and the second one I was training for a year. So I had more stamina and I felt really strong.''

The 'Murder on the Orient Express' beauty stars alongside Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, in the movie, and she felt ''very lucky'' to be his co-star, and to also work with Harrison Ford (Han Solo) and the late Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia).

Speaking about her fellow cast mates, she said: ''It was wonderful because obviously I was very lucky to be able to work with Harrison [Ford] and Carrie [Fisher], and when I worked with Mark for the first time, we went for dinner with his family. And then we had time for rehearsals and we're shooting with him a lot, which was really amazing.''
