This past Friday, Star Wars: The Force Awakens break-out star, John Boyega ventured to the Royal London Hospital. Known to the universe as FN-2187, aka Finn, his character has many fans including the young and young at heart.
Variety shares that Boyega visited the hospital in full character mode. He not only passed out toys to the children, but he also granted the wish of a young boy by the name of Daniel.
Boyega was quoted saying, “When I heard about Daniel’s wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true. It was fantastic to be a part of his very special wish with Rays of Sunshine [and] it was also great to meet the children at the Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive.”
Boyega shared a few photos over the weekend on his Instagram account as well as some heart-warming words.
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. ❤️❤️❤️
