Actor Oscar Isaac enjoyed the "challenge" of featuring in "Star Wars" movies, but he has no plans to return to the franchise anytime soon.

The 41-year-old actor played the role of Poe Dameron in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", "The Last Jedi", "Rise Of Skywalker". 

In an interview with Deadline, the "X-Men: Apocalypse" actor asserted that he didn't pursue acting to do only big budget movies, reports dailymail.co.uk.

"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,: said the actor while talking about his experiences making the "Star Wars" movies and "X-Men: Apocalypse".

He continued: "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."

Asked if he would never again consider a return to the big-budget world of "Star Wars", Isaac said: "Probably, but who knows. If I need another house or something."

He is inspired by veteran writer-director Paul Schrader of "Taxi Driver" and "Raging Bull" fame. He got to work with him on "The Card Counter", as a gambler opposite Tiffany Haddish and Tye Sheridan.

"Paul's movies, the things that he's made, it's in my DNA," he asserted.
