In recent years, Adam Driver has proven to be one of the most talented actors of his generation.
He not only received Oscar nominations for his appearances in BlacKkKlansman and Marriage Story, but also became known thanks to his role as Kylo Ren in the Star Wars sequel trilogy.

Of course, Ren's chosen name was Ben Solo because he was the only child of Han Solo and General Leia Organa, while he was also trained as a Jedi by his uncle Luke Skywalker.
Unfortunately, we couldn't see much of Ren's backstory in The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, or The Rise Of Skywalker. It turns out that Driver had thought a lot about Ren's past.

According to Lev Grossman, who wrote a great feature about The Rise Of Skywalker for Vanity Fair, he spoke to the entire cast during this time. However, not everything could be included in the article, including the driver's deep thoughts about Ben Solo's childhood.
Grossman said to Inverse, "I think probably what I lacked I wanted to see more about Kylo's childhood. I thought they would go back to show us more about why he turned to the dark side. [Adam Driver] had a lot of interesting thoughts about Ben Solo's childhood. "

"Adam Driver actually said that. He said that both Han Solo and Leia were too absorbed in this idea of themselves as heroes to be really attentive parents, as a young and tender Kylo Ren really needed. There wasn't really that much in the movie, so I just think we have to assume his childhood is crappy. "
