We have all been there. Read the spoilers, don’t read the spoilers. Imagine having that painful decision to make when you have been handed the script to the final part of the sequel trilogy. Well, Domnhall Gleeson had that dilemma when he was handed the script to J.J. Abram’s Episode IX – and he regrets reading it!
The General Hux actor spoke on the Happy Sad Confused podcast when he revealed that he regrets having read the entire script for Star Wars: Episode IX, because he’ll have the unenviable task of needing to keep it secret for the next year and a half.
“I made the terrible mistake of reading the script, I know everything,” Gleeson said. “The nightmare is falling asleep on public transport… The nightmare is you wake up on a plane and someone’s dictating. You wake up and your mouth is shaping words, you wake up and you’re like ‘Skywalker did this.’ And then you realize you don’t know how long you’ve been speaking, and there’s a kid filming, there’s somebody writing it down. And because you’re in the air, you say ‘We need to have a talk before we land, I can access my bank account.'”
