Adam Driver Reveals Kylo Ren Props He Kept After Star Wars Sequel Trilogy

Adam Driver recently revealed that he still has a few sentimental props from his Star Wars sequel trilogy role as Kylo Ren. The character is the alias chosen by Ben Solo as he is taken in by the tempting power of the dark side of the force. He is the only son of Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa.

Driver originally appeared as Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens and eventually rose through the ranks of the First Order to become Supreme Leader. Driver plays Kylo Ren in all three Star Wars films: The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi, and The Rise of Skywalker.

Kylo Ren’s menacing visage and favourite weaponry are strikingly similar to Darth Vader, Kylo Ren’s Sith Lord grandfather. The all-black robes, full black helmet, and red lightsaber all allude to the dark side of the force’s attributes.

Kylo Ren, on the other hand, wields a crossguard lightsaber; which differs from Lord Vader’s sabre. Nonetheless, Sith Lords’ proclivity for wearing intimidating and gloomy clothing provides a further degree of intimidation; and emphasises their status as faithful dark side slaves.

Driver said in a recent BBC Radio 1 interview (via Comicbook) that he still has two helmets and a lightsaber from his part as Kylo Ren in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. As Driver readily and comedically confesses; this isn’t the first time he’s appreciated keeping a few mementoes. Annette, The Last Duel, and The Dead Don’t Die are just a few of the projects that the outstanding actor has worked on.

Driver also mentioned that he enjoys taking photos and that he has a habit of departing projects with a few sentimental items in tow. Below are Driver’s precise remarks:

“Then I keep them in a room and I just pray to myself as an homage to all the things that I’ve done”

I have lots of stuff. I for sure have a helmet — I have two helmets actually, a lightsaber, I have stuff from The Dead Don’t Die. Every movie I try to take [something]. I take a lot of pictures, too. Sometimes I take things that are on the set, like I have a bunch of stuff from AnnetteThe Last Duel. I have my machete from The Dead Don’t Die that I killed zombies with. I take all sorts of stuff. Then I keep them in a room and I just pray to myself as an homage to all the things that I’ve done.

Fans and critics alike praised Driver’s performance in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Driver won the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in The Force Awakens; which was hailed as one of the best villains in the Star Wars canon. He was also nominated for the same award for his work in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

It seems only reasonable for the celebrated actor to save a few mementoes from the franchise to honour his outstanding performance. To be fair, Driver isn’t the only one who stole some props from the set. Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey, admitted to taking a few artefacts from the set home with her.

The fact that Driver kept a few mementoes from his career demonstrates how important his work is to him. This isn’t usually a shared characteristic among actors. Although the actor’s casting in the Star Wars saga perplexed some owing to the nature of his previous roles; he proved that he was up to the task. Despite his character’s death, Driver even suggests that he would be open to returning to the galaxy. The notion would most definitely pique the interest of audiences all around the world; but only time will tell if Kylo Ren or Ben Solo, played by Driver, will make a comeback.
