John Boyega visits sick children in hospital as Finn



Star Wars actor John Boyega granted a special wish by visiting sick children, in costume as fan favourite Finn, at the Royal London Hospital.

The Bafta-winning actor took toys and taught 5-year old Daniel, diagnosed with a brain tumour, lightsaber moves.

The actor said: "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.

"It was also great to meet the children at The Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive."

As someone who spent time in children's hospital, following a head injury at primary school, Boyega has my utmost admiration and Daniel my empathy. May the force be with you. Always.
