Actor Adam Driver, who portrays Kylo Ren in the just-released, greatly-anticipated film Star Wars: The Last Jedi, appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, wearing all black and shiny red-sole shoes like a faithful Sith Lord. Colbert managed to convince Driver to help him re-enact a spoilery scene regarding Rey's mysterious parentage, using action figure dolls.
Disney does not allow anyone to show a clip from The Last Jedi.
Usually, when guests appear on a talk show to promote their film or show, a video clip is provided for the audience to watch. That is not the case with the secrecy maintained around the plot of Star Wars films -- Disney embargo and all. Even Mark Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, couldn't bring a clip when he was previously on The Late Show.
To make up for the fact they didn't have a clip from The Last Jedi, Stephen Colbert and Driver acted out "a scene" from the film using miniature action figures on The Late Show.
Rey's true parent is none other than...
Turns out that Driver and Colbert are very good at improvising Star Wars scenes using action figures. At one point Colbert even attempted to extract some spoilers, but despite his best efforts Driver managed to keep his cool.
We learned that Driver had many different jobs before becoming an actor.
Vacuuming ✅ Waterproofing ✅ Construction worker ✅ All of those were jobs #AdamDriver did before he became an actor… https://t.co/N1uLKbcmtC— The Late Show (@The Late Show)1513314660.0
So that is how he turned to the dark side.

He truly is Han Solo's son.
