His time in the final chapter of The Rise of Skywalker may have been comparatively short, and his influence diminished by the arrival of Palpatine loyal superior Allegiant General Pryde, but nevertheless Domhnall Gleeson clearly enjoyed his last ride as the unfortunate General Hux.
“It would’ve been nice to stick around a little bit longer, for sure. It would’ve been nice to see the spy thing play out a little bit, but J.J. knows what he’s doing, and I heard a kind of gasp in the cinema when it happened, so I guess he was right.”
Hux perished at the hands of Richard E. Grant’s General Pryde, something Gleeson was more than happy with.
The length of the final episode was a widely discussed topic, one Gleeson understood well.
“The film is what the film needed to be, I think. There’s always stuff that you would like to see more of, but you can’t have a 17-hour film, I’ve been told. Apparently that’s not allowed, so I was happy with what was there.”
