Some fans believe that Daisy Ridley's Rey, the main character of Star Wars: The Force Awakens will turn out to be the daughter of Luke Skywalker - and Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, isn't doing anything to dispell that notion.

At a fan event in Oxford, England (via The Sun), Hamill was asked whether he felt like a "father figure" to Ridley. 

“Daisy is incredible, so genuine, appealing, loveable, she beams, she has a wonderful charisma, I adore her. She’s my daughter’s age - and that’s how I relate to her," Hamill responded. “I don’t mean anything by that. As actors that’s how I relate to that.”

Fans will likely learn more about Rey's true parentage when the as-yet untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII is scheduled to hit theaters December 15, 2017.

In a related story, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed during the company's annual meeting (via Variety) that Star Wars: the Force Awakens will be released as a digital download on April 1, followed by a Blu-ray edition on April 5.
