Mark Hamill calls Adam Driver “moody,” and it sounds like the “Star Wars” baddie takes his role to heart
Kylo Ren, the most prominent man-child in The Force Awakens, is possibly King of the Moody — and judging by a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Adam Driver took his role as Kylo seriously on the set. While talking about The Last Jedi and celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars, Mark Hamill told some pretty interesting stories about what it was like to be on set with Driver.
Actors each have their own method and working on a Star Wars movie is no exception. Driver told the outlet how personally he takes each role: “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.”
That probably explains why he didn’t necessarily want to become buddies with Hamill (aka the Luke Skywalker) on set. Hamill recalled the intensity of Driver:
“He’s very moody and intense, Hamill said. “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.’
Don’t worry, there’s no bad blood here. But, does this mean Luke and Kylo might have some scenes together in The Last Jedi?! We can only hope.
