Adam Driver is currently promoting his new film Ferrari which sees him starring as Enzo Ferrari. Naturally, some of Driver’s past performances are coming up during various interviews, including his time playing Kylo Ren/Ben Solo in the Star Wars sequels. During a recent appearance on Max’s Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace, Driver revealed the one moment from the trilogy he can’t seem to live down. You won’t surprised to learn that it’s the moment Kylo kills Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“Somebody reminds me about that every day,” Driver shared. When asked if he was being series, Driver added, “Not every day, but yeah. It used to be more, but now it’s probably once a month someone will let me know that I killed Han Solo.” Driver talked more about filming the infamous moment, saying it wasn’t necessarily “tough,” but “very emotional actually.” He added, “Harrison was so generous and contemplative, and to me, that was a great moment on set, even though it was his death.”
Will Adam Driver Return To Star Wars?
Now that a movie about Rey (Daisy Ridley) is in the works at Lucasfilm, some folks are wondering if Adam Driver will return as Ben Solo. In the world of Star Wars, there’s always room for a Force Ghost or flashback.
“No, I’m totally not against it. For me, it’s a filmmaker’s medium, so my only thing is working with great filmmakers,” Driver confirmed with UNILAD back in 2021. “Whatever the size … it’s never been interesting to me, to an extent. There’s interesting things about working on both. I always just follow people I’d be interested in working with, and whether I’d be right for the part — things like that. No, definitely not averse.”
