John Boyega Surprises Sick Kids with 'Star Wars' Toys

John Boyega is amazing.

John Boyega is a hero on and off the screen. The 23-year-old actor madea 5-year-old patient's dream come true when he visited him at The Royal hospital in London Friday dressed as his Star Wars: The Force Awakens character, Finn. Daniel Bell was diagnosed with cancer. So, John Boyega decided to visit the little hero and share with him the power of The Force. Boyega shared his story on Instagram. "Rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related!" he captioned the PicStitched snap. "Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper."
Instead of focusing on his illness, Daniel Bell got to focus on learning some lightsaber skills and passing out teddy bears to his fellow patients.

"To see Daniel smile like that without a care in the world after everything he's been through, knowing how much time and effort Rays of Sunshine have put in to his wish and that John Boyega gave his time to make it come true, is priceless," Bell's mom, Rosalind Bell, told the Belfast Telegraph.

"Daniel is still totally overwhelmed, I have never seen him so happy," she added on Facebook.

John Boyega said he was touched by what "an amazing and inspirational boy" Bell is.

"It was also great to meet the children at The Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive," he added.
