Driver felt sick watching his film
Actor Adam Driver, who plays antagonist Ben Solo/kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, says that he felt he would “puke” when he saw his on-screen avatar kill off his father Hans Solo, played by veteran actor Harrison Ford. “When I watched the premiere, I felt sick to my stomach... Immediately, I thought I was going to puke. I was holding my wife (Joanne Tucker)’s hand, and she’s like, ‘You’re really cold. Are you OK?’ Because I just knew what was coming — I kill Harrison Ford — and I didn’t know how this audience of 2,000 people was going to respond to it, you know?” he told GQ magazine. The actor will reprise his role in the eighth chapter, The Last Jedi, of the popular sci-fi franchise. The movie also stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Anthony Daniels, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson and the last performance by Carrie Fisher.
