“The hardest thing about playing Finn was holding back all the time,” John added about his character. “Trying to be led by fear rather than strength was a tricky balance to ride without coming across as the pushover! Everyone expected acrobatics and a fully rogue badass character. (BORING) heroes are not born in one movie. Wait for the trilogy. Finn ain’t playing no more.”

John Boyega Dresses as Finn to Visit Children's Hospital!

John Boyega shares a cute moment with five-year-old Daniel Bell while visiting the Royal London Hospital on Sunday (March 13) in London, England.

The 23-year-old Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor dressed as his character Finn while supporting the children’s charity Rays of Sushine.

“This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumor 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,” John wrote on his Instagram account.
