Fan Video Confirms Adam Driver’s Participation in the Greenham Common Filming.

Adam Driver

Potential Spoilers Ahead!


10 days ago we showed you a blurry picture from the Episode VII set at Greenham Common featuring a male actor in an X-Wing suit that had a striking resemblance with Adam Driver. That was a bit surprising considering that so far all the rumors about Driver were that he is playing a villain role in the movie. Now a newly posted fan video on youtube confirms that a “bloke named Adam” was indeed part of the shoot…


Special thanks to The Cantina member MagnarTheGreat for finding the videos and posting a transcript of the most important part.





From 0:22 min.


GUY 1: “We can see lightning units down there. What did the director say?”

GUY 2: “He said that ‘I want a quick scene of him just running off the ship.'”

GUY 1: “And then he called the bloke Adam. So we’re gonna have a look on the internet and see who in the cast is called Adam.”


Well we already know who that fella is. Yep, the X-Wing pilot is indeed Adam Driver.

Also the same guys posted 2 other videos from the set with just some distant sights and sounds from the set. Nothing much interesting in those:

    You guys are being duped. Look up where they were actually filming that day. Plus, why would the director call him “Adam”, if all the characters have code names?

      • September 25, 2014 at 6:57 pm

        If they’re using their real names on set, then “Kira” must be an actual character name. Otherwise, why use code names for dressing room doors only?

      • September 25, 2014 at 7:04 pm

        How do we know John boyega’s name was shouted on set, because some fanboy video said so?

        Likewise, how do we know ‘Kira’ was really listed on a dressing room door?

        How do we know anything?
        We don’t.

          “How do we know John boyega’s name was shouted on set, because some fanboy video said so?”

          I hope this is a joke. The video was of a scene being filmed and someone on set (second unit director or AD I would assume) clearly calling out his name.

          • September 26, 2014 at 8:11 pm

            Not only that, but the person who posted it to Facebook got a less-than-pleasant mail from a representative of the producers, demanding that he removed this supposedly “copyright”-defying video. If this is all bogus misdirection, they are trying very hard indeed. Is movie-making all about espionage, counter-espionage and disinformation these days?

  • September 25, 2014 at 6:18 pm

    How is this a confirmation? That picture is super blurry. Is it not possible there is other Adam on the set?

  • September 25, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    I don’t know if this necessarily confirms Adam Driver’s role as an X Wing Pilot, or even that that is in fact him in the picture. It’s likely, but still still seems like speculation and rumors to me.

  • September 25, 2014 at 6:55 pm

    Adam or not, don’t you guys think its pretty stupid that the “rebels” are still using the same kind of uniform after 30 years??

    • September 25, 2014 at 7:01 pm

      This Rebel pilot uniform has got some significant differences from the older one. The helmet has a transparent (not orange) retractable visor, a different jumpsuit made of a thicker-looking materiel, shoes instead of the classic boots, and a new vest with a white box attached to the right side, with a black hose that leads down to a pocket in the left pant leg.

      • September 25, 2014 at 8:50 pm

        They still look almost the same, the diffrences are not that significant as you say. This was the first letdown for me when it comes to news regarding Episode VII. I hope its the only one.

        • September 25, 2014 at 9:00 pm

          if they are still rebels they probably dont have a ton of credits to spend on flashy gear

        • September 26, 2014 at 3:42 pm

          Perhaps they are sticking with a similar style (I stress “similar” as they are clearly different) as a kind of symbol. Most people probably remember the Rebellion in a nostalgic way and this style has become iconic. And if you actually compare the images of the suits side by side, they are different in the design of the parts while keeping the feel and color scheme of the classic suit. For instance, the white vest part is a different shape (v-neck and more of a full vest around the arms) and the center piece is round instead of square. Also, the straps on the legs seem to be hanging down the side of the leg rather than going between the legs and then wrapping around the legs.
          Besides, it isn’t unheard of in the real world for a design to stay basically the same over many years. I don’t think the look of a basic NASA space suit has changed that much since the 80’s until the recent concept suits.

    • September 26, 2014 at 1:15 pm

      The US Army wore green in both World Wars, Korea, Vietnam. Didn’t really change till the 1980s. You can do the math.

  • September 25, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    “Yep, the X-Wing pilot is indeed Adam Driver.”

    This is a lie. How dare you can say that this is a fact?

    Zoom into this guy´s face. He is defnitely not Adam Driver.

    • September 25, 2014 at 8:21 pm

      Hypocrite alert.

      “Zoom into this guy´s face. He is defnitely not Adam Driver.”

      Well how dare YOU ‘say that this is a fact’ .. ?

      • September 25, 2014 at 9:53 pm

        “Only a Sith deals in absolutes” lol

  • September 25, 2014 at 7:04 pm

    There is always the concept of good guy gone bad. Look at Anakin turned Darth Vader. I was talking to my brother the other day and he mentioned that in the EU (I know they aren’t following EU but..) Han and Leia’s son turned evil. With Adam Driver dressed up as Han Solo’ish on the magazine perhaps he is a good guy in Episode VII, but perhaps not in VIII and IX. Just circumstantial stuff, just thought I would share.

  • September 25, 2014 at 7:09 pm

    Well, the ‘evil’ in this film is more elemental than the black and white good/evil dichotomy in the classic films.
    It’s more stratified, which is really the only way they could do it, considering the amount of important characters in the movie.

  • September 25, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    Adam has such a genuine presence about him and is great at comedy acting, I can see him being in the main trio much more than I can see him as a villain. Or a hero who turns bad.

    • September 25, 2014 at 8:30 pm

      Chrome troopers would certainly help out JJ’s lens flares 😉

    • September 25, 2014 at 8:41 pm

      In the article it states that the hood will not be used in the film.

      • September 25, 2014 at 8:53 pm

        That’s a relief.

    • September 25, 2014 at 9:12 pm

      The first image is a total fake. Stay tuned for our report.

      • September 25, 2014 at 9:39 pm

        Phew! Thanks Viral! The thing looks like a Cylon and an EpIII clone trooper had some kinda love child.

      • September 25, 2014 at 9:58 pm

        the two must be false then

      • September 25, 2014 at 10:19 pm

        This article also references the EpVII TIE pilot helmet. We haven’t even seen that yet, have we?

  • September 25, 2014 at 9:29 pm

    I can’t believe they kicked Ben Stiller off the set grounds!

  • September 25, 2014 at 9:48 pm

    So how about Driver is stationed as an Alliance pilot when the Falcon shows up with the family in tow knowing that the Imperials are hot on their trail to destroy the base and they pull Driver out…
    “Quick son… Get on the falcon”
    Boom, Explosion & Dantooine goes up in flames as the Falcon blasts out just in time as they continue to search for Luke.
    When they find Luke he feels the darkness is with Driver and the foreshadowing for 8 & 9 is complete!

    By the way the reason the pilot is wearing shoes was probably because his boots were killing him and he has gone for a coffee in a break in filming

    • September 25, 2014 at 9:51 pm

      So they end up destroying Dantooine anyway, even though it was “too remote to make an effective demonstration.” 😉
      Not a bad idea, I just really hope Driver does not play the son of Solo.

  • September 25, 2014 at 10:25 pm

    ACTION PACKED!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Glad that there are some many cool shots from EP7……

    Sadly the din’t get some of JJ Binx…

    • September 25, 2014 at 10:39 pm

      now that is what I call a mega nose.

  • September 25, 2014 at 10:50 pm

    They must have removed the chrome trooper when it was…if it was proved to be fake as I dont see it. As far as differences in the X Wing costume. It is as another poster mentioned different. Also seems to be red and not orange. Also if the video is real seems like ‘Adam’ is running from the Falcon as I dont think they would call an X-Wing a ship….

    • September 26, 2014 at 3:27 am

      Yoda calls Luke’s X-Wing a ship in TESB.

  • September 26, 2014 at 12:41 am

    Am i the only one that thinks Adam Driver is the villain, but will act as a spy and pretend to be a rebel? Maybe to get closer to Luke or Daisy.

    • September 26, 2014 at 9:37 am

      “Oh, Leia, if only there was someone out there who loved you.”

  • September 26, 2014 at 1:41 am

    What ever happened to that video of Adam running? Looked like he was winging a lightsaber. Is there anywhere left to view it?

  • September 26, 2014 at 4:39 am

    These two guys making the video remind me of comic relief characters in Shakespeare like likable grave robbers or something. They should play lazy night watch man # 1 & 2 in the movie.

  • September 26, 2014 at 9:53 am

    True Anon….
    “Awww cant get your ship out”

  • September 26, 2014 at 5:48 pm

    Maybe it was all some kind of flashback scene?
