The background of Rey's parents has been one of the most intriguing subjects when it comes to the forthcoming film "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".  Whether she is the daughter of the Millenium Falcon captain, Han Solo or the Jedi Knight, Luke Skywalker remains undisclosed until the film opens this Christmas. However, Daisy Ridley who plays the role of Rey may have accidentally unveiled her character's father.

According to Fansided, actress Daisy Ridley may have inadvertently confirmed the long-running rumored parentage of her character, Rey in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Along with Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, Ridley shared some details about the upcoming film in Japan. In one interview, the actress reportedly gave a hint about her character's father. "I'm not sure how much I can say," she said. "I guess because I've said that I'm solitary, and that's how I begin, that is probably a big clue as to what... (Kathleen Kennedy nervously chuckles) ... it is."

Now it is speculated that the actress has left a keyword in her response to the interview. Jason Ward of Making Star Wars is predicting that the word "solitary", which is a synonym for "Solo", answers the intriguing question of who her character's father is. Considering that her character is carrying a DL-44 Blaster - the same pistol Han Solo was using -it looks like Ridley has just confirmed the speculations of the fans.

Though it makes sense to believe the said theory, another commentator named Christopher Thiry also noted that Luke Skywalker was also solitary when he first appeared in the saga. According to International Business Times, Thiry's argument could mean that Ridley was referring to the Jedi Knight being Rey's father in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Meanwhile, J.J. Abrams helmed the film which stars Ridley along with Adam Driver ("While We're Young", "Hungry Hearts"), Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave", "Non-Stop"), Gwendoline Christie ("Game of Thrones"), Oscar Isaac ("Ex Machina", "A Most Violent Year"), Harrison Ford ("Age of Adeline", "Ender's Game"), Carrie Fisher("Wishful Thinking", "Fanboys"), Andy Serkis ("The Hobbit", "Rise of the Planet Apes"), and  Peter Mayhew.

"Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens" is expected to hit theaters on Dec. 18.
