Adam Driver Wants “to Be Forgotten” as Star Wars Villain ‘Kylo Ren’


Showbiz Cheatsheet published some remarks by Adam Driver recently, and it appears he’s ready to move on from the Disney Trilogy Fiasco.


Despite fan requests, why won’t Adam Driver be reprising his role as Ben Solo?

In an interview with the International news outlet, LeMatin, Driver discusses his feelings about returning to the role of Kylo Ren in another film or TV series.

“This is not at all on the agenda,” Driver quickly responds. “This experience will forever remain one of the highlights of my career, but I aspire to other adventures.”

The Marriage Story star went so far as to say that he wants fans to forget he ever played the role of Kylo Ren.

“By 2020, I want to disappear,” he tells LeMatin. “I want to be forgotten so that I can be offered other very different projects.”

A few other actors in The Rise of Skywalker left their responses open-ended to the possibility of returning to Star Wars. However, Driver’s answer is a definite, “No.”


The feeling is mutual Adam, we’d all like to forget too.
