John Boyega showed talent at an early age, and went on to be noticed by the director at “Theatre Peckham”, an educational theater for young people in South London. After the “Theatre Peckham”, he attended South Thames College at the Wandsworth campus (2008 to 2010). His purpose was to obtain a “National Diploma in Performing Arts”. He gained a star in his belt at South Thames College by procuring the lead in the onstage production of “Othello”. Another onstage production featuring him as the lead, shortly after, was “Woyzeck” at the “Old Vic Theatre” in London. Everything John Boyega touched “turned to gold” as an actor. He found his calling. For a short while John Boyega’s head was turned by “BA Film Studies and Media Writing”, but he quickly regained focus as an actor. All in all, life and a true love for acting has been the greatest training for John Boyega.
Not many people know this but we had to train outdoors a lot in the sun. John kept saying he was getting flashback to when he was a landscaper. When he decided to look up the company he worked for, it was interesting to see the landscaping company was still up. Its hard to imagine this start would be doing something like landscaping, although it did give him good training.
Nominations and magazines attribute the stars of tomorrow. John Boyega has been strong on the lists. The predictions have been accurate and John Boyega is definitely a star. John Boyega has been placed beside Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker in the halls of Star Wars fame, as “Finn”. Eternity is playing on our hearts, just as we remember Han Solo, Darth Vader, Obi Wan Kenobi, and Yoda. “Star Wars: Episode IX” is the third movie in the Star Wars follow up trilogy, and John Boyega has played in all three as a memorable character. “Star Wars: Episode IX” is already riding strong with its distribution coming from Walt Disney Studio’s Motion Pictures, formerly known as the “Buena Vista Film Distribution Company, Inc.”. The Walt Disney Company is tops in the entertainment department, as we all know. Their business is creating memories, icons, and stars. John Boyega has proven to be no exception to their fine linage. The entertainment industry has definitely gained from John Boyega’s fine talent of acting.
Many of these characters did something early in their careers they were not necessarily passionate about. We learned on set some of the people worked at a Mold Removal and Water Damage company. This was crazy to think about because they are all famous now after the ltest star wars movie.
John Boyega, born John Adegboyega, arrived March 17, 1992 in on the Earth in London, England. His proud parents were of British Nigerian descent.

John Boyega is an extremely talented lad with a lot of credits under his belt in correlation to his years on this Earth. There seems to be no limit as to what he can accomplish. He has already shown us that with his role as Finn in Star Wars. John Boyega’s very first stint on the stage happened when he was in preschool. He played the part of a leopard and loved it. And off he went. He had found his mission in life.
John’s parents were encouraging and appreciated his skill and desires to act, even though his father secretly wanted him to be a minister like him. John was provided with the best of training and opportunities. He definitely was not slothful and obviously took advantage of his full potential. John Boyega is likened to a plant in constant bloom.
