Speaking to Vulture, Adam Driver discusses his surprise at becoming recognised since his appearance as Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens….
“No,” he told Vulture. “I was aware that more people would see it than see most things I do, but I don’t think I could have anticipated how often I’d get recognised because it’s so different for every person. I’m very tall and I look a certain way. I can’t blend into a crowd.”
He and his enormous pecs are pretty conspicuous, to be fair. Driver also admitted being quite surprised by his reputation for seriousness and intensity on the job.
“I like to stay focused on set but it’s not because I have a process that I’m imposing on everybody else,” he said. “Sometimes you have to be more focused in between scenes because what’s happening is that, on something like Star Wars, it’s pure comedy in between takes. It’s stormtroopers running into walls because they can’t see through their helmets. So I don’t know where the intense thing came from.”
