16 Times John Boyega Didn't Let Fame Change Him One Single Bit
He's still just a boy from Peckham
Today is John Boyega’s Birthday and at the ripe old age of 24, it wasn’t so very long ago that John Boyega was just a boy from Peckham with some big dreams.
Over the last couple of years though those big dreams have become a reality for John at a startling rate, he’s now the star (wars) of one of the biggest films in the world and has all the fame in the galaxy to go with it.
Has this changed him? Course not, here are few examples of how John has stayed completely down to earth while flying among the stars…
When him and his mates had literally no chill at the premiere
“I’M A BOY FROM PECKHAM AND I’M IN A STAR WARS MOVIE”.
When he got just as emotional over the first trailer as we all did
When he spent the day hanging out at his old school and inspiring literally everyone
When he refused to let race be an issue
“The true star wars fans as just ready to see a good movie despite my gorgeous chocolate skin!”
“More than 50 million in pre-sale tickets, where there racists at man!? Cos those guys booked their tickets for the movie regardless!”
When he went to surprise fans at basically every screening
“STAR WARS DUDE”.
When he used his fame to help out his pals
When he had no shame about his first time in the spotlight (kinda)
When this happened
John’s got some serious moves and he’s not afraid to show it.
When he didn’t forget his family
When he spent his time handing out toys in a children’s hospital dressed as Finn
When he gave this adorable answer to why Rey wasn’t with him at the hospital
When he didn’t forget his roots
Since shooting to fame, John has become a patron for London’s Identity School of Acting, the diversity focused school that trained him up to be the awesome actor he is today. He said, “I’m so grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me through this amazing school, and I’m grateful to Femi Oguns for believing in my vision and running with it.”
When he totally didn’t play it cool on his private jet
When he kept insisting that Harrison Ford is his best friend
We believe you, John.
When he was basically just a big kid
When he literally just decided to spend his birthday in a toy store
HBD John, never change!
