From warships to limos, from khaki shirts to tailored-fit tuxedos, former Lance Corporal Adam Douglas Driver seemed poised to take the center stage in Hollywood. His rise to stardom may look like a piece of cake to some, given his undeniably impressive acting prowess. Yet, little did people know that his firm physique and strong personality that we all look up to are a product of his immense training when he decided to join the US Marines after the 9/11 attacks at eighteen years old.
No wonder his extraordinary discipline exudes in all the roles he has portrayed on screen, except for his debut character Adam Sackler in the 2012 HBO comedy-drama series Girls, where he was an emotionally unstable love interest of Hannah Horvath (played by Lena Dunham). But as we tried to dig deeper into his motivations, his goofy character Sackler has an uncanny resemblance to how he was after his mother's second marriage to a Baptist minister. Following Driver's parent's divorce, he became rebellious against his mom and his stepfather. Hence, when he played the role of a father in the 2019 critically-acclaimed drama film Marriage Story as Charlie Barber, Driver creatively drew inspiration from his painful experience. Charlie's marriage with Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) in the movie was mired in a quagmire full of misunderstandings. But if there is one thing this movie tells us, it is the fact that divorce is where love and hate collide. Yet, prior to knowing Charlie, we first met him as Kylo Ren in the Star Wars franchise. Before becoming one with the force in his third and final appearance in the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, he was able to redeem himself. This just proves that Adam Driver will power through the odds of life personally and professionally, no matter what. Get to know him better with our list of Adam Driver movies and shows below!
