Poe Dameron actor Oscar Isaac recently joked that he will only return to Star Wars for another big payday.
The Star Wars films under Disney have seen the return of many legends in the franchise over the years. However, many newcomers were added to the franchise as well. The Rise of Skywalker might have been the end of the Skywalker saga, but many are anticipating that we will see the return of Rey, Finn, and Poe in some form, whether it is in another movie or TV series.
One actor who has been pretty keen on not returning to Star Wars is Oscar Isaac. The Poe Dameron hasn’t been shy about his disappointment in the sequel trilogy for not exploring a romance between Poe and Finn. While speaking to Deadline to promote The Cloud Counter, Isaac opened up about his experience working on the Star Wars films:
“I enjoyed the challenge of those films and working with a very large group of incredible artists and actors, prop makers, set designers, and all that was really fun. It’s not really what I set out to do. What I set out to do was to make handmade movies, and to work with people that inspire me. Paul [Schrader]’s movies, the things that he’s made, it’s in my DNA. I’m not alone, obviously. [For] every actor of a certain generation, those are the films that made them who they are, so that’s certainly my case. It feels like for me a personal turning point and that, as far as I’m concerned, it has nothing to do with the finished product. It’s the process of doing this.”
Oscar Isaac then joked about a possible return as Poe in the future:
“Probably, but who knows. If I need another house or something.”
