You might remember John Boyega for being absolutely lovable (despite getting his ass handed to him) in Star Wars the Force Awakens. And the reason why I loved his character, Finn, in the movie is that he just wants to do the right thing. He's constantly being faced with hard choices against scary motherf*ckers, but still decides to fight anyway. Knows that the Republic is an evil empire that'll stop at nothing to get what it wants? Sure, I'll betray them. Gets beat up by a lame ass storm trooper in a lightsaber battle? Sure, I'll take on Kylo-Ren. The guy's insane for all the right reasons.
And it looks like that good guy persona isn't just an act, Boyega visited a children's hospital, in character, to spread some Star Wars goodness to some force-lovin' kids.
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. ❤️❤️❤️ - Boyega on Instagram
