Adam Driver is an American born actor best known for his role as Kylo Wren in the Star Wars franchise. Growing up he appeared in plays in High school, but after 9/11, he enlisted in the Marines, serving for more than two years before being medically discharged after he suffered an injury, which prevented him from being deployed.
Driver started out at the University of Indianapolis before transferring to study drama at Juilliard in New York, graduating in 2009. After graduation, he began acting in plays and appearing on Broadway, before being cast in Lena Dunham’s series Girls (2012), as her character’s love interest, Adam Sackler. The role gained him attention, and he subsequently began a robust film career, appearing in small roles in J. Edgar (2011) and Lincoln (2012), supporting roles in Frances Ha (2012) and Inside Llewyn Davis (2013), and graduating to major parts in the comedy-drama This Is Where I Leave You (2014), Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015), Martin Scorsese’s Silence (2016), Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi (2017), and coming soon: Star Wars: Episode IX (2019).
