John Boyega wants a cameo in Doctor Who

John Boyega, best known for his role as Finn in Disney's Star Wars sequel trilogy, wants a cameo in Doctor Who opposite Ncuti Gatwa (Sex Education) in the upcoming series.

Discussing diversity in film and television, Boyega told the Radio Times:

"It is opening up. You get inspired by things like Ncuti Gatwa playing the Doctor in Doctor Who – that is special to me. The glass ceiling can’t limit us. It’s exciting to see what comes out of this new stage of filmmaking and entertainment."

When asked about appearing in Doctor Who.

"I would love that!" the Star Wars actor said. "But get me in an episode where I’m one of the many Doctors in many timelines so I can just cameo it."

Boyega co-starred with former Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker in Attack the Block. With returning series showrunner Russell T Davies (It's A Sin) and the involvement of Disney+ in the forthcoming series of Doctor Who, I'm sure a cameo is possible.

Doctor Who returns for three 60th anniversary specials, starring David Tennant (Doctor Who) and Catherine Tate (Donna Noble), this November on BBC One, BBC iPlayer and Disney+.
