Adam Driver on his bad Comic-Con experience: “It was terrifying”

For many, going to the world’s largest geek convention held in San Diego each year is a dream to be fulfilled. For Adam Driver it was a nightmare that he does not intend to repeat.

The actor has told in the Graham Norton program his bad experience at Comic-Con in 2015, which he went to to present ‘Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens’. “Did you like going to Comic-Con?”asked the British comedian. “No”he replied. It turns out that he had to be locked in his hotel room by obligation, and was only allowed out if he donned an Iron Man mask or (ironically) Darth Vader..

“I didn’t know the rules of Comic-Con. They put me in a hotel at 2 in the morning … and I tell them: “Maybe tomorrow I’m going to get a coffee.” And they: “Oh no, you can’t go get a coffee.” And I: “Well, then maybe I’ll get a coffee at the hotel.” And they: «No, you can’t have a coffee at the hotel. We have several masks in a bag, if you want to wear one. And they gave me as an option an Iron Man mask or a Darth Vader mask so that I could go out “recalls the ‘Annette’ actor.

“And then I open my windows, because I had been in the room for 24 hours waiting for this thing to happen, and there is a band at the door of the building playing the song of ‘Star Wars’ in a loop, because they knew we were in the hotel. And it was terrifying “he adds, explaining that it was a very devoted and energetic audience. “The only time. I’ve already seen it, and it’s fine … but I’m not interested in going again.”.

Double with Ridley Scott

Actually ‘Star Wars’ was an exception in Adam Driver’s career. The actor we met on the HBO series’ Girls’ really likes working in adult and auteur films: ‘Paterson’, ‘Silence’ by Martin Scorsese, ‘The man who killed Don Quixote’ by Terry Gilliam, ‘History of a marriage ‘by Noah Baumbach or’ Annette ‘by Leos Carax, one of the most curious European films of the year, are just some of his best works.

Now he is in theaters as one of the protagonists of ‘The Last Duel’, by Ridley Scott. And with him he makes a double because on November 26 he premieres ‘La Casa Gucci’, which he stars with Lady Gaga. We may never see Kylo Ren again, but we have Adam Driver for a while.
