In an interview with ODE (hat tip Sleemo), Ackie was asked about her involvement with Star Wars. Given the level of secrecy associated with this franchise, Ackie couldn’t reveal much, but she did say some of her favorite actors to work with on the film:
“I think my absolute faves were the like Star Wars new originals. I loved being with John and Daisy and Oscar and it was brilliant to share the screen with them. Such brilliant energy. It was brilliant.”
Technically, we already could figure that her character was going to spend time with Finn and Poe, based on leaked set images showing the three of them in one location in the United Kingdom meant to represent a lush, green world in the film itself. However, the fact that she’s got scenes with Rey is pretty new. Since Rey has been more separate from the other cast members in the story shown thus far, this heavily implies that she’ll not only spend more time with other portions of the “Big Three” heroes at the same time, but also supporting characters as well.
