Adam Driver had an overwhelming experience at his first San Diego Comic-Con and he said he's "not anxious" to go back because of it.

Driver, who played Kylo Ren in Star Wars episodes 7-9, recalled his first and only time at Comic-Con when he was on The Graham Norton Show to promote his next movie, House of Gucci.

He told Norton what happened when he got to his hotel.

"I didn't know the rules of Comic-Con."
"I got in at the hotel at two in the morning."
"And I'm like, 'Maybe tomorrow I'll go get a coffee.' And they're like, 'Oh no, you can't get a coffee.'"
"I'm like, 'Well, maybe I'll get a coffee in the hotel.' They're like, 'No, you can't get a coffee in the hotel.'"

Driver didn't realize thousands of people were camped outside his hotel in celebration of the release of the new Star Wars film.

They said Driver would have to disguise himself:

"They said, 'We have some masks in a bag if you wanna put some masks on.'"
"They had some options of an Ironman mask or a Darth Vader mask.."

Driver said, amongst the 2,000 people who were "very devoted" to the franchise, was a band playing the Star Wars theme song on repeat.

"I opened my window because I'd been in the room for 24 hours before this thing we were supposed to do."
"And then there was a band at the bottom of the building playing the 'Star Wars' theme on repeat because we [the cast] were all staying in the hotel. It was scary."
"It's just a lot of energy, as you can imagine."

That was his first and last time attending Comic-Con, but despite saying it was "nice," he didn't sound confident he would return.

"I'd... I'm not anxious to go again."

People are not surprised he was overwhelmed by the intensity of Star Wars fans.











Only time will tell if Driver will return to a Comic-Con in the future, but it doesn't seem likely.
