How much cooler can John Boyega get? Over the past weekend John visited the Royal London Hospital to visit terminally ill children in character as Finn. Five-year-old Daniel Bell, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor, wanted to meet Finn, and he got that chance. Boyega went on to say some more about his trip via Entertainment Weekly:
“When I heard about Daniel’s wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true,” Boyega, 23, said, according to the Belfast Telegraph. “It was fantastic to be a part of his very special wish with Rays of Sunshine.”
This was very cool of Boyega to do for these little Star Wars fans. The Force is truly strong in him.
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. ❤️❤️❤️
