John Boyega surprises unsuspecting Star Wars fans at screenings all over London

The Force Awakens star couldn't resist the opportunity to spread a little Star Wars magic

His role as Finn in The Force Awakens may have set him firmly on the path to superstardom, but that hasn’t stopped John Boyega from getting back to his roots and surprising Star Wars fans across his home town.


The new Star Wars star flew back to London over the weekend to give fans a rather special surprise before screenings of The Force Awakens.

Boyega popped up in a whole host of cinemas from Greenwich to Brixton – and created a Twitter storm wherever he went.

Boyega, who was particularly jubilant to be back home for the film’s London premiere last week, seems to be having quite a lot of fun with his newfound notoriety.

And why wouldn’t he?

The Force has awakened and we can’t wait to see what’s next for him.
