(CNN)He's the breakout star of "The Force Awakens" and in the space of weeks has become a household name. By now, John Boyega needs no introduction.
10 reasons John Boyega is our favorite celebrity right now
As disillusioned stormtrooper Finn, the son of Nigerian emigres is a big reason behind "The Force Awakens'" record opening weekend -- but he's not letting success go to his head.
Here's how Boyega has managed to nail the business of being Hollywood hot property:
When the teaser trailer for "The Force Awakens" emerged, the first shot was of Boyega, a black stormtrooper. The internet did what it does best and hit the outrage button: "Black stormtrooper? Unheard of!" Boyega's response: "Get used to it."
Skip forward a few months and he's the critics' new darling and superstardom beckons.
Yeah, we'd look like that too.
Boyega's brutal press tour has seen him zig-zag across the globe in the last fortnight. From New York to Seoul to Tokyo, Los Angeles, London and New York, then back to London, he's clocked a fair few air miles.
The guy should follow in the footsteps of Harrison Ford and get his pilot's license.
Over the weekend Boyega dropped in to ten screenings of "The Force Awakens" in New York and London, all within the space of 48 hours. What's more crazy? Disney didn't make him do it -- it was his idea!
Last year Boyega took Harrison Ford for a meal at one of his local Peckham haunts, Nigerian restaurant 805 on the Old Kent Road. Its not every day you see Han Solo tucking into pounded yam and egusi soup.
He's on your screens and soon he'll be under your Christmas tree. In the words of Boyega, "Chocolate man located! Aisle five!"
And why wouldn't he be?
Peckham's finest. And what?
We've got a feeling he's heard of "Star Wars" by now.
We wouldn't want another metatarsal injury now, would we?
The Chinese premiere is December 27 and filming for Episode VIII starts in a few months. Episode IX meanwhile is due some time in 2019.
John Boyega, may the Force be with you.
