The man in the Kylo Ren suit:?She also said Driver is so 'he gives it so full out every single time' with his stunts
Driven:?Driver was seen training in a tank top in a gym as well and she looked as fit as can be. He said that he could not get lazy as the stunt men he worked with were so on top of it. The star used to be in the military and no doubt drew from that experience
