Whether you liked Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens or not, the one thing everyone seems to agree on is how epic the moments of that last scene felt. We all knew we were finally going to get to see Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and possibly learn a bit about what he's been doing all these years.

Unfortunately, that last scene wasn't quite as epic for the actors and film crew who were shooting it. According to Daisy Ridley (Rey) in an interview with, filming those last moments of one of the highest-grossing movies of all time was terrible:

"I'll be honest with you, I was very sick one of the days we filmed. Mark was trying to do his serious acting, and I was like, retching in the cooler. I'm not kidding, it was so awful."

As if trying to act alongside Mark Hamill while trying not to vomit at the same time isn't enough, the poor girl had to climb up the stairs on the island Skellig Michael 6 times to get the final shots just right. Suddenly, the facial expressions and wordless glares make more sense. However, Daisy graciously said it could have been worse. She vowed not to complain about her own hardships since the guy who had to work the Steadicam had to make the same trips but backwards while holding and operating a large camera.

That certainly seems like a fairly rough few days, but, as Daisy says, it couldn't have been in a more beautiful location. Courtesy of GossIRE, check out the full interview with Daisy Ridley here:
