John Boyega may have been behind the Star Wars script leak, according to his castmate Daisy Ridley.
J.J. Abrams, the director of the latest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker, revealed a cleaner had found a top-secret script under an actor’s bed and passed it on to a film fan, who in turn attempted to sell it on Internet auction site eBay – but he refused to name names during an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday (November 25, 2019).
Disney bosses heard about the leak and managed to grab the script from eBay bosses before they put it up for auction.
On Tuesday, Ridley appeared on the U.S. breakfast show and gave a very clear hint as to who left the script under his bed.
“People assume it was me,” she told host Robin Roberts. “I’m not gonna throw the person under the bus…, but there is someone else potentially coming on the show this week, who can answer who it was.”
Boyega is a guest on Wednesday’s show.
