HONOURED: John Boyega

JOHN BOYEGA is undoubtedly the UK’s brightest young thing.

Born in Peckham, south London, John has come a long way since his first role as a lion in a school play.

Now he is the leading actor in Star Wars: The Force Awakens with a BAFTA win under his belt. But being an actor wasn’t enough for him – he began his own production company called Upperroom Entertainment Limited, which will oversee the sequel of Pacific Rim, which he will also star in.

The 24-year-old was named Best Breakthrough Actor of the Year at the recent GQ Awards.

“Even a galaxy isn’t vast enough to contain rising star John Boyega, who is as comfortable in arthouse drama and biting satire as he is in the planet’s best-loved franchise,” GQ said.
