John Boyega Cried When He Read The Force Awakens Script



Most Star Wars fans know The Force Awakens is going to be awesome, and John Boyega admits that he cried when he first read the script.

In a new interview in GQ, Boyega describes reading it for the first time:

“When I read the script I cried, and I’m not really a big crier … I’m more like a frog-in-the-throat kind of guy, who’ll try to hold it in and make sure I don’t let it all out.”

He also describes his character Finn:

““Finn is dope. He is a heightened Hollywood leading man version of myself; his story is so epic.

“It’s a story that’s never been seen before, but it also mirrors the stories of Luke Skywalker and Han Solo. And he’s quirky and charismatic and funny. For me, he was the best character in the script”

The new issue of GQ with John Boyega’s interview is hitting newsstands now, and if we’re lucky we’ll be seeing a new trailer for The Force Awakens in about three weeks from now.
