STAR WARS actor John Boyega added another trophy to his expanding award shelf after picking up the Chopard at the annual Cannes Film Festival.
The award, for up-and-coming stars, was presented to the British actor by French actress Juliette Binoche.
“Big thank you to Juliette Binoche for presenting the award to myself and the very talented Bel Powley. Didn’t expect this,” the 24-year-old wrote on Instagram.
Speaking with Vulture after the Cannes ceremony, John reflected on how life has changed since starring in the hit franchise.
He said, “I get stopped sometimes; sometimes I don’t. But, you know, with that being said, there are still two more Star Wars movies!
“It’s fun, it’s hard work, it makes you happy, it challenges you, it’s all of those things mixed into one, but fundamentally because of the great group that we have that I’m working with, it’s a great experience.”
