Adam Driver is opening up about what his character is like Star Wars The Force Awakens evolved over time.

The actor who played Kylo Ren in Star Wars The sequel trilogy revealed that the villain was originally not supposed to redeem himself in the end.

“JJ Abrams explained to me what he wanted to do with the character, but you had to sign up and say, 'I'm going to do this,' and after I did that, I went to London to star in pre-production. ,” Driver recalled during an appearance on Rich Eisen's program. “And it's like, 'There's a little room down the hall, you can go in there and read the script.' And then I was reading it for the first time.”

He continued: “I had a general arc in mind that [Abrams] I wanted to do. His idea was that [Kylo’s] journey was the opposite journey of Vader, where Vader starts out the most confident and the most committed to the dark side. And then in the last film, he is the most vulnerable and weak. He wanted to start with the opposite. This character was the most confused and vulnerable and, by the end of the three films, would be the most committed to the dark side. I tried to keep that arc in mind, regardless of whether it ended up not being the journey, because it changed during filming. But I was still focused on it.”

Driver played Kylo Ren in The force awakens, The Last Jedi It is The Rise of Skywalker. It was The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, who took the character in another direction.

“The last one became, you know, about them and the dyad, and stuff like that,” Driver added. “And evolving into Ben Solo. That was never part of it. He was Ben Solo from the beginning, but there was never a version where we would see Ben Solo when I first signed up.”
