Commuting to the London suburbs isn’t the most exciting activity in the world, so congrats to John Boyega for making lots of passengers’ days a little bit brighter.
The Star Wars actor decided to assist his sister – who works for Southeastern rail – at work for a day, and boarded the 2.40pm train from London Victoria to Orpington in Kent.
He made announcements at each of the 15 stops, telling anecdotes at each one – such as the fact his grandad pronounces Penge ‘Pen-gey’ – made a few Star Wars-related joked and even burst into a little sing-song.
Boyega uploaded a video of his antics to Instagram with the caption ‘So decided to assist my sister @blessingboyega and her amazing colleagues at south eastern rail with some informative announcements. Hope everyone on the 2:40 train to Orpington had fun listening to me talk rubbish #Imrandom.’
He later thanked passengers via Twitter for listening to his “nonsense.”
To all the passengers on the 2:40 south eastern train to Orpington, thank you for listening to my nonsense 🙂

Now if only celebrity guests could be introduced as standard on all trains – it’d certainly make commuting a little more amusing.
