John Boyega talks his Star Wars co-star BB-8 down from a rooftop

"BB-8, don't do it man."

The international press tours that come with blockbuster movies are hard, and even the biggest stars can get overwhelmed. Lucky John Boyega was there for his co-star BB-8, when it all got too much on a Shanghai rooftop.


BB-8 got so tired. He was rolling towards the ledge but I stopped him thankfully.

True, this may have just been an issue with BB-8’s remote controls sending him perilously close to the edge, but wherever you’re from in the galaxy, it’s always nice to be reminded that you have friends and are deeply loved.
