Adam Driver as Kylo Ren

Of course with a title like that, one might misinterpret the meaning of it. But the reality of it all is, Adam Driver‘s approach to Kylo Ren is so deep that his fellow Star Wars: The Last Jedi castmates are literally hugging the Dark Side out of him. Perhaps, he’s even taking things a bit too personally with this role. But whatever he’s doing, it sure is surprising everyone on set. Which might have some great results in the end. It sure worked out in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Now the actor is revealing his take on the character and the effort he puts into playing Kylo Ren. Find out more on this story below.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Driver spoke about his approach to the role of Kylo Ren this time around:

“There’s big personal things that I find about every character, not just in Star Wars, that you have to make as personal as possible. It’s the big joke about being an actor, that you make everything you’re doing seem like it’s life or death. The things about that character that I find painful, that I really relate to, I kind of prefer to keep to myself.”

Apparently, his method to acting has caught the attention of the greatest Star Wars alum of them all, Mark Hamill. When asked about Driver’s approach, Hamill said:

“He’s very moody and intense. I remember saying to Adam, ‘I don’t know how you work, or your technique. But, at some point, you were my nephew. I probably bounced you on my knee. I probably babysat for you. There’s that side, and now we’re both estranged from the Skywalker family. All I’m suggesting is, if you’d like, maybe we could go to lunch, we could get together and hang out.’”

Well, it’s nice to know that there is camaraderie while on set. While fans may remember Driver for driving a crossbar lightsaber through his own father, watching the young actor’s performance may be so powerful, it’s gotten to a point where his co-stars have to ask if he’s alright. It may be such a concern that John Boyega has to give him a random hug:

“I give Adam hugs randomly, just for no reason. He just stands there. He just waits for me to be done.”

That must be a comfortable situation. Again, at least it’s nice to know what the chemistry is like while on set.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15, 2017.
