Press Trust of India  |  London 

Judd Apatow revealed that Adam Driver was approached by his Star Wars fans, while the "Silence" actor was filming scenes for "Girls" on the streets of New York.

Driver became a household name when he was cast as Adam Sackler on the HBO show, later bolstering his status by landing a role in Star Wars reprise "The Force Awakens".

He plays the new trilogy's villain Kylo Ren, the wayward son of Han Solo and Princess Leia - and "Girls" producer Apatow said Driver's stardom attracted a lot of attention on his show's set, reported Spy.

"I remember going to the set and I was just amazed that every kid on the street was just staring at Adam and walking up to him with their lightsabers.

"It makes you think - 'oh, there's this great actor we saw a long time ago and now kids are walking up to him like they're walking up to Harrison Ford'," Apatow said.
