Star Wars: John Boyega

You know John Boyega best as Finn in the most recent of the Star Wars films. He starred in The Force Awakens (2015), The Last Jedi (2017) and is back for the final film of the entire Star Wars franchise, The Rise of Skywalker which hits theatres Friday.

Finn (John Boyega) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) in STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER.

Boyega grew up in London and his dad was a Pentecostal minister. We sat down with the 27-year-old to talk about how his character becomes a more capable warrior, how his past has informed his future, and recalling the six-to-seven month shoot and how it’s time to say goodbye to this saga.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is in theatres December 20.
