John Boyega Pays Children's Hospital a Visit Dressed as 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Character

"I'm just humbled!" Boyega said of the visit. "I hope I played a little part in making you smile, young stormtrooper."

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega dropped by the Royal London Hospital in London to hand out some enviably cool toys, he awesomely did so while in character as Finn. Boyega, who the Hollywood Reporter says visited the hospital on behalf of the Rays of Sunshine charity, recounted his emotional visit on the 'gram with a few galactic snaps:

"Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself, he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys," Boyega said when sharing the photos on Monday. "I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything Earth related!" Daniel Bell, 5, was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. Adding that he was "humbled" by the opportunity, Boyega Finn thanked the young Stormtrooper for introducing him to the magic of Earth.

This hospital visit, of course, was a terrific move and is hopefully indicative of a larger trend. Earlier this month, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson invited Gabriel "Tater" Singleton to hang out on the Baywatch set. Tater, 7, has been bravely battling neuroblastoma for years. "Everyone on set is excited to meet you," The Rock wrote on his ‘gram when replying to Tater’s open letter. "Especially the girls!"
