Adam Driver’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens


Star Wars super rumor site, Making Star Wars, has the skinny on Adam Driver’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. According to the site, Driver will be portraying Kylo Ren, a force sensitive, Sith Lord type villain.

Making Star Wars now claims to have conformation of Driver as Kylo Ren, getting his insane villain on, in a “padded room” on a Star Destroyer.

"“We’re fairly certain its Kylo Ren played by Adam Driver. There was so much concept art for this sequence we can’t say what it amounts to at this point. We don’t think it is the main bad guy as he has no sequence which appears to line up with the scene in the painting(s).”"

The site goes on to describe the scene where Kylo Ren appears to be talking to himself, possibly to the burned out and broke mask of Darth Vader.

"“We then cut to Kylo Ren, alone in his “padded room,” talking to himself on a Star Destroyer”"

Making Star Wars goes on to talk about Kylo Ren killing various people on the hunt for a lightsaber. If Adam Driver will be Kylo Ren, an insane force sensitive Sith, the question still begs as to if he will also be Han and Leia’s son and brother to Daisey Ridley’s Rey.

Since the news broke that J.J. Abrams would be resurrecting the Star Wars franchise, news and rumors from the set have been leaking like a faulty faucet. Late last year, a photo surfaced of an piece of concept art, featuring a cyborg type character gazing at the burned out mask of Darth Vader. Making Star Wars seems confident that Kylo Ren is that Cyborg, and Adam Driver will be playing him.
