Don't worry, the dreaded SPOILER MACHINE for Star Wars Episode 8 has not started trundling already, John Boyega was simply asked by British Vogue about the latest script and what he thought of it. In addition to saying it's "great" he also said it's "much darker but we're very excited." Also, he's going to have to beef up for the role: "My part in the next film will be much more physical so I might be in the gym a bit more."
Speaking of landing the role of Finn, the 23-year-old BAFTA EE Rising Star nominee added: "When I found out I had the part, the overwhelming feeling was of relief. I'd been auditioning for seven months so it was just unbelievable to think, yes, finally I know for sure I'm going to be in this film. In terms of what's changed, my life back home in London is still pretty normal. I mostly drove everywhere around where I live even before I got that part, so that has meant my life just goes on as normal. I was in Wandsworth this morning."
As for how he got on with Han Solo: ""Harrison is great to work with. It's hard not to admire him, not just as an actor but as a man. He's built an incredible career and being on set with him and learning from him is brilliant. Our characters had quite a lot of scenes together so it worked well that we had a good rapport."
For those of you who've yet to mark it in your diary, the release date for Episode VIII is May 26th 2017.
