John Boyega’s Friends Thought He Was a Star Wars Extra
John Boyega, one of the new actors in Star Wars: The Force Awakens gave his friends a big surprise at the premiere of the film. He told Jimmy Fallon his pals thought he was just an extra in the film. He said, “I couldn’t tell anyone: family, friends, I had to keep it a secret.” That all changed at the premiere.
“This is what’s so funny. They showed a lot of respect and attention, but I took them to the London premiere and after the premiere, they were just like, ‘Yo John! I never knew you were in the movie for so long. I thought you were an extra,'” Boyega told Fallon.
“‘All this time I was leaving Monday to Friday. What did you think I was doing?'”
