Kylo Ren's shadowy past is one of the driving forces behind his turn to the dark side. While The Force Awakens showed snippets of the character's history and why he's partnered with the villainous Supreme Leader Snoke, actor Adam Driver -- who plays the character -- says that there are some mysteries that will never be fully resolved.
"I mean, there's, like, bits and pieces that we started working on that kind of, I know, are answered in this one that we kind of started in The Force Awakens, that I knew [were] operating, you know, when we were doing [The Force Awakens], that I knew as time went that they kind of reveal themselves, but even of those things, there's a lot of those things that will never be revealed and there's no plans to," Driver told Screen Rant when asked about how it feels to not know his character's fate. "There are things that I think about that, for me, is what makes it kind of more fun in the playing of them, you know."
It's not entirely clear if Driver's statement refers just to what will happen with the character, as the question was directed at his future, or if it also refers to his history with his family, the Knights of Ren and the New Jedi Order.
Star Wars: Episode IX, the final film in the sequel trilogy, is currently on its fourth script, so there's a chance that Driver may not yet know exactly what happens and what's revealed in that movie.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, written and directed by Rian Johnson, opens in theaters Dec. 15 and stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Lupita Nyong'o as Maz Kanata, Benicio Del Toro as 'DJ,' Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo and the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa.
