20 Things You Didn't Know About Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker

18. Adam Driver Did All Of His Own Stunts

A lot of actors like to say that they did all or most of their stunts on a big blockbuster film, but in Adam Driver's case, he's actually got the receipts to back it up.

The Rise of Skywalker's stunt coordinator, Eunice Huthart, confirmed in an interview that Driver truly did do all of his own stunt work, such that his stunt double never actually suited up:

"Yeah, he did [do his own stunts]. And lucky for him! Most actors will always say to me, 'I want to do all my own stunts! I want to do all my own stunts!' Sometimes, they're just not capable. They want to be in character. They want to be a part of everything. But they just can't do it where it's a believable level as the character should be. Adam Driver, on the other hand, is as good as any stuntman. He's absolutely fantastic. And he works so hard. He did everything. The stunt double never got in costume on The Rise of Skywalker. Adam Driver did everything!"
