“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star Adam Driver has revealed what steered his character, Kylo Ren, toward the Dark Side.
“If you really imagine the stakes of him, in his youth, having all these special powers and having your parents kind of be absent during that process on their own agendas, [being] equally as selfish,” Driver said in a DVD extra for “The Force Awakens,” “he’s lost in the world that he was raised in, and feels that he was kind of abandoned by the people that he’s closest with. He’s angry because of that, I think, and he has a huge grudge on his shoulders.”
So let that be a lesson to all you parents out there: Pay more attention to your kid or he could turn into an evil warrior wizard who blows up star systems.
“It’s more than just having a ‘bad seed’ as a kid,” Abrams said. “Snoke had targeted this kid and knew that this kid was going to be incredibly powerful in The Force and wanted him as an ally. So this mother and father had a target as a son, someone who’s watching their boy, and these parents aren’t there enough to guide him.”
