He’s very moody and intense. I remember saying to Adam, ‘I don’t know how you work, or your technique. But, at some point, you were my nephew. I probably bounced you on my knee. I probably babysat for you. There’s that side, and now we’re both estranged from the Skywalker family. All I’m suggesting is, if you’d like, maybe we could go to lunch, we could get together and hang out.’
—  Mark Hamill on Adam Driver (x)

Adam Driver literally said months ago that The Last Jedi is all about nuance and ambiguity and there’s still people who expected the great, epic, romantic, Han-Leia relationship?

OF COURSE that type of romance is not central to this story, there’s literally nobody who ships Reylo who wants that.

Rey and Kylo are not Han and Leia.

Rey and Kylo are enemies, and they are both very conflicted people.

they are different.

There’s big personal things that I find about every character, not just in Star Wars, that you have to make as personal as possible,” he told me. “It’s the big joke about being an actor, that you make everything you’re doing seem like it’s life or death” - including his internal process of becoming Kylo, about which he is circumspect. “The things about that character that I find painful, that I really relate to, I kind of prefer to keep to myself,” he said.
—  Adam Driver about playing Kylo Ren in Vanity Fair
Everyone who is not Adam Driver says that Adam Driver is uncommonly intense on set. He’s really all-in on becoming Kylo Ren. John Boyega told me that he likes to try to break the Kylo spell by running up to Driver and giving him unexpected hugs. But evidently, it doesn’t shake Driver.
—  Vanity Fair writer David Kamp when asked about the chemistry between actors in The Last Jedi.

Thank you Vanity Fair! John randomly hugging Adam (God bless John Boyega!) and that Mark quote! It would have been a lot harder for me to bear the ants’ petty gloating today if it wasn’t for Mark giving us info on Adam’s acting methods. Kylo and Rey’s dynamic must get very interesting and important if Adam thought it smart to spend time with Daisy but not with Mark. Kylo’s dynamic with Luke has to be very interesting too (can’t wait!), and very hostile if Adam thought it better to stay away from Mark. Can we conclude that Rey and Kylo’s dynamic will be less antagonistic than Luke and Kylo’s?

What I love about Star Wars is how it brings different generations together

My parents watched Episode IV when they were still dating and many years later they found themselves watching Episode III with me and my sister. We were in the cinema waiting for the movie to begin and I remember my mum suddenly turning around, looking at me and my sister and saying: “Who would’ve thought that we would’ve ended up watching the end of this saga with our daughters!” (That’s when we still thought ep III was going to be the last one, thank god it wasn’t!)

And it’s amazing how this passion just never leaves us, because now we’re waiting for the new movies together and I know that in December we’re going to sit down and watch all the old ones together because we love the saga and we just can’t get enough!

I love Star Wars, flaws and all. I grew up with these movies and I’m happy there’s more to come, more for us to see, new amazing characters to fall in love with and more galaxies to explore. Who knows, maybe one day it will be me watching it with my kids!
