I don’t think many people would argue that the breakout star of HBO’s breakout comedy Girls isn’t a girl at all, but actor Adam Driver, who plays Hannah’s brutally honest (sometimes just plain brutal) and frightfully unpredictable boyfriend on the show. Girls has launched Adam into superstar status, and he is capitalizing with an incredibly busy 2015 that includes roles in highly anticipated films by notable directors like Noah Baumbach, Jeff Nichols and Martin Scorsese. Oh, and then there’s his part in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens that you may have read about.
So, when Hannah returned to New York City from her brief sojourn in the world of Iowan fine arts academia and finds Adam with a new girlfriend, many viewers assumed that his days as a cast member might be numbered. Lena spoke with The Daily Beast and assures us this is not the case.
