String class has a constructor that takes in char: public String(char value);
char pwdArrray = ... String pwdStr = new String(pwdArrray);

Considering object references, note that you cannot change the type of an object with a cast. A cast creates a reference of a different type than the reference being cast, but both references would point to the same, unchanged object.
