Who is John Boyega? Meet Finn from 'The Force Awakens'

John Boyega is going to be a household name by the end of the year due to his role as Finn in the new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens, so here are some things you should know about him!

The 23-year-old British actor first was noticed by specialty film audiences with his work in the 2011 movie Attack the Block, which earned him several nominations for some UK film awards.

Following his work in The Force Awakens, moviegoers will get to see John in the role of Kalden in the upcoming sci-fi drama The Circle, based on the novel of the same name by Dave Eggers.

John has responded to racist critics who had an issue with a black actor playing the lead male role in the new Star Wars film.

“I’m in the movie, what are you going to do about it? You either enjoy it or you don’t. I’m not saying get used to the future, but what is already happening. People of color and women are increasingly being shown on-screen. For things to be whitewashed just doesn’t make sense,” John told V Magazine.

There’s not much known about John‘s character Finn, but we do know he battles the villain Kylo Ren and uses the lightsaber once owned by Luke and Anakin Skywalker.
