John Boyega Teases Time Jump and Change in Appearance for Episode IX
Star Wars actor John Boyega has dropped a hint about a physical change that may be in store for his character in the next instalment of the franchise.
Boyega, 26, also said he did not take his lucky break in the hit films for granted as he spoke about his involvement in the UK launch of a mobile phone app to help in the fight against cancer.
The London-born star, who plays Finn in Star Wars, said: “I can’t wait to start shooting the next and final leg of the franchise.
“The first step is growing out my hair, so you can wait for the trailer to see why.”
He also hailed Star Wars as his “big Hollywood break”, adding: “It definitely changed my life in so many ways.
“I’m in a really fortunate position now where I’m not just acting, but also breaking free as a young creative in a really competitive industry.
“It’s not lost on me how rare that is.
“Star Wars has led me to be able to co-produce my first movie with Pacific Rim and other projects.
