It has been two years since I last sat down to speak with Daisy Ridley, the heroine in a new generation of “Star Wars” films. A lot has changed since then.

As an opener I casually mention that the name of her “Star Wars” character, Rey, is also the Spanish word for “king” and posit that may foretell the direction she takes in the latest film of the franchise, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” But the 25-year-old Ridley is good at this game now, she spills nothing in terms of plot and instead praises the franchise’s forward thinking.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
