Adam Driver hid Star Wars identity from wife

ADAM Driver kept the identity of his 'Star Wars' character from his wife for three years.

The 'Girls' actor plays villain Kylo Ren in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and admitted he was happy to keep the secret from his wife Joanne Tucker because the surprise was worth it.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, he said: "It was great. I kept it from my wife for three years, just because the payoff of her seeing it with everybody was so worth it."

Meanwhile, Adam loved playing Kylo Ren because he is "unpolished and reckless".

He explained to the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "I feel there's a recklessness about him that's maybe not normally associated with the 'Dark Side'.

"You normally think of order, and structure, and full commitment and no hesitation...he's just a little bit more unpolished. It's in his costume, in his lightsaber - how you kind of get the sense that it could just not work at any moment; that it could just blow up. That's kind of like a big metaphor for him."
