'Star Wars' Actor John Boyega Appears in Character During Visit to Children's Hospital
Boyega stayed in character as Finn throughout his trip to the Royal London Hospital.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega brought smiles to the faces of kids when he turned up as his character Finn at a London’s children’s hospital.
Boyega, who stayed in character the whole time at Royal London Hospital, posted about his experience on Instagram:
This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper. ❤️❤️❤️
He said he met a boy named Daniel, who was in the hospital with a brain tumor. Boyega said that the child was a big fan of the film and wanted “Finn” to meet other kids and teach them the ways of the force.
The 23-year-old showed the children how to use a lightsaber and learned about what life is like on Earth.
Boyega even took to Twitter to thank the child for the experience.
