This past March, after shooting “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” “Detroit” and “Pacific Rim: Uprising” almost back-to-back-to-back, John Boyega didn’t immediately jump onto the next studio tentpole that came his way or consider taking a vacation. Instead, he went back to his roots to recharge. He starred in a new incarnation of Georg Büchner ‘s “Woyzeck” in London’s West End to “just get warmed up again.”

“Theater is a great opportunity where you can mix day-to-day work with the training,” Boyega says. “You go back to learning about your voice, about pitch, about diction. You go back to the basics of what an actor is, and the basic training for me was just trying to get both at a time I was really busy.”

The 25-year-old actor had just five days off between Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars” installment and Kathryn Bigelow’s historical drama “Detroit,” which came out in August. At no point during our interview did Boyega ever roll his eyes, but when asked if it was hard to transition so quickly between such starkly different projects his answer seemed to convey a similar reaction.

“They are so distinct. It’s a no-brainer, really. Space. Detroit,” Boyega says with a slight smile. “Some actors make it sound more complicated than it really is, man. You have a set project with two different narratives. The costumes and creative team are different. They are also distinctly professional in their own rights, that makes it an easier transition for you.” [Source]
