Ladd McConkey as Rey Skywalker

Another newer Star Wars character that deserves a spot on this list is Rey Skywalker or just Rey. She may be another female character, but it doesn’t matter again because it’s 2022, and this is for fun.

Ladd McConkey would make the perfect male Rey as they are both two unknown individuals with a lot of skill and power that stays hidden until someone gives them a chance.

No one expected McConkey to be the force he was, and Rey was a nobody who had no family, but when they both realized what kind of power they had, it was evident that neither should get challenged.

Rey saved the galaxy, and McConkey helped his team find success in 2021 as a freshman. They both refused to back down and accept their fates, so it was another easy character match.

McConkey doesn’t necessarily have to fight Rey’s dark side urges, but they both do what they feel is right and don’t hesitate to help do that.

Tenacious, gritty, and quick are the three best ways to describe them both, so why not cast McConkey as the one character we all wish we were. Rey is such an inspiration, and so is McConkey, so we like this pairing a lot, and honestly, it fits.
