Author Sariah Wilson recently spoke to Daisy Ridley, and in a series of tweets she explained in detail the contents of that conversation, a thread that revealed some interesting nuggets about the finale of the Skywalker Saga.
Reylo fans: Daisy says the only two possible TROS endings was kiss or no kiss, she said Ben dying was the only thing that never changed from the beginning and that there was no dialogue in the kiss scene other than "Ben" and her saying "No, no, no, no" when he died.

Interesting that while many elements of the film changed as production edged closer, the death of Ben Solo was a constant.
Sariah posts at length about her interview with Daisy, and it’s well worth checking it out, as is my interview with Ian McDiarmid in issue 200 of Star Wars Insider, where he also delves into some interesting avenues regarding his time as the senator for Naboo and the making of The Rise of Skywalker.
