The Force Awakens seemed to ask as many questions as it answered, especially concerning the villainous Kylo Ren. In the film we learned much about the character and his past and saw more of his idolization of his grandfather Darth Vader. Of course this raises some questions, such as why Kylo chooses to follow in the footsteps of Vader rather than his Light Side alter ego Anakin Skywalker. Gav Murphy from IGN recently caught up with director J.J. Abrams and inquired about this very subject. Abrams' gives a very intriguing answer, and also comments on why Kylo turned to the Dark Side in the first place. You can check out the video below:



Additionally, Pablo Hidalgo of the Lucasfilm Story Group confirmed Kylo's age on Twitter:


Kylo's backstory, coupled with Adam Driver's performance, made him one of the standout characters in The Force Awakens. I can't wait to see his story unfold further and learn more about his motivations in future films.
