Adam Douglas Driver was first recognized from the HBO’s Girls (2012 – 2017). He played Hannah Horvath’s erratic-but-earnest love interest. He ended up not winning her heart in the movie but in real life, won the affection of the female millennial population, critics and directors alike. His brilliant role on the series served as one of the stepping stones to his role on the famous megahit film franchise Star Wars.
Date of Birth: November 19, 1983
Zodiac Sign: Scorpio
Where he is now is a far cry from Mishawaka High School back in the day at the turn of the millennium when Adam was just another school kid trying to figure out what to do with his life. He described himself as a high school “misfit”; he got lousy grades, was grounded a lot and used to spend his time “lurking around railroad tracks and setting things on fire”. One thing that can be recalled from his school days was that he was among the school’s most talented kids who could also entertain people.
After he graduated in 2001, things went nowhere fast so he took on several odd jobs just to earn a living. He fund time for some auditions but was rejected until the September 11 attack on the world trade centre gave him another perspective to life. He enlisted with the military and on his return, decided to get serious with acting. On screen, he is an incredible phenomenon but he is actually a notoriously private human.
