Adam Driver on playing Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The last time I spoke with Adam Driver before Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he had to tiptoe around a couple of major spoilers – the fact that Kylo Ren is Ben Solo and that he kills his father. Now that the world knows he murdered everyone’s favorite character, I was curious to find out how that affected Driver. What was the public reaction like? How do kids react to him? And how does it affect Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
But it’s not all gloom, doom, and the Dark Side with the actor. I was able to ask him about his favorite Kylo Ren parody, whether he was pro-porg or anti-porg, and other fun stuff. So sit back and enjoy this video with my boy… Kylo.
