Adam Driver


Adam Driver is one of the most acclaimed and recognizable actors working today. His breakout role was as Adam Sackler on HBO’s Girls which netted him three Emmy nominations. Since then, he has appeared in a number of director-driven films such as Jim Jarmusch’s Paterson, Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis, and Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman. 

His most high profile role has been Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (for which he won a Saturn Award) and The Last Jedi. He will reprise this role in the 2019 follow-up Star Wars: Episode IX.

In 2018, following a screening of Paterson at NYFA’s New York campus, Driver discussed his career and process with students.
