    Adam Driver. He's one of the best "things" of the ST.
    Imagine him in the role of Anakin Skywalker in AotC & RotS ...

    Mark Hamill gave the single greatest performance of the sequel trilogy (and maybe Star Wars as a whole) in TLJ.

    Adam and Daisy have been fantastic as well.

    I voted for "Daisy Ridley", "Adam Driver", and "One, two, or all of the original big 3", with the latter nod going to Mark Hamill's performance in The Last Jedi.

    This is pretty accurate by my eyes. Unfortunately, it was only one movie that allowed him to do anything but Hamill in TLJ does give what is probably the best singular performance in a Star War.
    Driver has been incredible in the three films of his as well. Especially TLJ. I even think he does the best you could possibly do with what he was given in TROS.

    Beyond those two, I think Oscar, Daisy and John do great things with what they are given it just isn't always "meaty" enough. So pick your favorite.

    Hat tip to Harrison Ford bringing it to a role he didn't care about for 30 years too! Lol. He could have easily Bruce Willis'd this but he brought his A game

    Fun question, but a simple one imo

    Adam Driver - by a mile.

    Mark Hamill in TLJ, with Adam Driver throughout at a close second.

    And the prize for the ST's most underrated actor goes to, Kelly Marie Tran.

    I voted for Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley and Andy Serkis.

    Kylo Ren/Ben Solo was the most impressive villain in all the star wars saga. He's already my favorite.

    Rey is great! So charismatic, she's the feminine version of my favorite of all time: Luke Skywalker.

    Snoke in TLJ was superb. Acting, lines and special effects.

    Hamill is my choice for the classic actors.

    Adam Driver was the best, imo.

    I'd go with Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley next.

    But liked them all!

    Plenty of talent everyone was stellar considering some of the questionable narrative choices.

    If I'm picking only 3. Adam had the most interesting character to work with and somehow made Kylo Ren unlikeable and Ben Solo sympathetic

    John Boyega had the least to work with character wise and still made Finn compelling despite him not being explored properly.

    Third slot could go to anybody particularly one of the original 3 who all nailed their performances, but Harrison Ford took me there in almost every scene he was in so the nod goes to him but really everybody was good all around. Good acting overcame a lot of questionable writing in the ST. These actors might've saved the prequels back in the day.

    Adam, Oscar, John. But everyone brings their A-Game, so props all around.

    Adam Driver is the MVP of this whole trilogy.

    Mark Hamill gave the best performance of his life in TLJ.

    Daisy Ridley really shined in TROS.
