It has been eight years since Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren character killed his screen daddy Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.

However it seems the actor, despite a flourishing career in the years since, will never live it down. Speaking with Chris Wallace in a new interview for CNN to promote Michael Mann’s “Ferrari” film, Driver says:

“Somebody reminds me about that every day… [well] not every day, but yeah. It used to be more but now it’s probably once a month someone will let me know that I killed Han Solo.”

Driver said filming the scene wasn’t tough per se but it was “very emotional shooting it with Harrison,” calling the veteran star “generous and contemplative”.

The comments come as actor Michael Fassbender has revealed to Happy Sad Confused that he had had conversations with Lucasfilm for a role in the sequel trilogy.

Whilst he wouldn’t say which role he was up for, he was asked if it was the Kylo Ren role to which he says: “Who is Kylo Ren? Honestly, I can never remember the names. No, no, no, it wasn’t. No.”

Finally, one person who has put his hand up to tackle a “Star Wars” movie is “Godzilla Minus One” helmer Takashi Yamazaki who told Slashfilm this week: “I watched ‘Star Wars,’ and that’s how I ended up being a filmmaker. I’m really hoping I will get a call and they will bring me on ‘Star Wars.’”
