Rise of Skywalker Domhnall Gleeson wanted Hux to stay longer


Hux actor Domhnall Gleeson wanted his character to stay longer in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. The last (and last) episode of the trilogy continued as well as in the Star Wars The Skywalker saga created elements of division, many aspects of the film being frequently questioned.

Everything seems to have gone too fast for many, but it often seems like yesterday that Star Wars: The Force Awakens was about to be released. Now about five years, Star Wars fans have experienced everything from the Skywalker saga. Along the way, there was a lot of controversy, new characters and of course, the death of some Star Wars characters and some not so important. The main point, however, is that Star Wars has changed a lot since 1977, and not all of the changes over the years have been well received by fans. In fact, it’s not just fans who often find themselves lamenting the decisions made in the franchise – sometimes even the actors themselves wish things had gone differently.

The most recent Star Wars The actor to express what he would have liked with the beloved series is Domhnall Gleeson. Known for playing General Hux, the allegedly evil character of Gleeson met his disappearance at the hands of General Pryde (Richard E. Grant) in late Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But in a recent IndieWire interview with the star, Gleeson revealed that he wished Hux could have stayed in the Star Wars universe a little bit longer. Gleeson admits that even though he would have liked to stay, eventually J.J. Abrams knew what he was doing. Said Gleeson:

It would have been nice to stay a little longer, that’s for sure. It would have been nice to see the spy play out a bit, but J.J. [Abrams] know what he’s doing, and I heard a sort of gasp at the movies when it happened, so I guess he was right.

As previously mentioned, General Hux was initially introduced to fans as the deputy commander of Kylo Ren. Hux played an active role throughout the sequel trilogy, but it was only Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker when the public finally learned its true intentions. Hux was secretly working to undermine Ren’s efforts to maintain power throughout. The general even went so far as Finn shot him in the leg to cover the assisted escape for Poe, Rey and Finn. It was not that Hux was sympathetic to the Rebel Alliance, but rather that the general was trying to do everything he could to remove Kylo Ren from power and replace him.

It’s easy to sympathize with Gleeson on his desire to stay in the Star Wars franchise – after all, who wouldn’t want to be a recurring character in the series? However, as interesting as a character is General Hux, it’s hard to imagine exactly how many more miles could have been taken from his “spy”. He certainly won’t be short of those who disagree with Gleeson as to whether or not Abrams knew what he was doing with the characters and the franchise as a whole, but it’s hard to deny that killing Hux was a good fit with the highlight of the trilogy in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
