John Boyega & Others at Old Vic Evacuated After Bomb Threat

John Boyega was caught up in a bomb scare on Saturday afternoon (May 27) when the Old Vic Theatre in London was evacuated during a performance of his play Woyzeck.

The 25-year-old actor, best known for playing Finn in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens, is currently starring as a British soldier during the Cold War in the play.

“We have been evacuated as a precaution; audience safety is our priority. We are liaising with the Met Police,” the Old Vic theatre tweeted. Later on, the theatre updated that “the incident was found not to be suspicious. Thank you for your understanding.”

“Patrons for this afternoon’s performance should contact their point of sale to arrange to re-book,” they added.
