I would be honoured to work with @JohnBoyega and can only hope to have the chance. We’ve got your back, John. Don’t hold back.” Stage and screenwriter Jack Thorne said: “I have worked with John Boyega (on Woyzeck at the @oldvictheatre) and would cut my hand off to work with him again. A magnificent talent.” JJ Abrams, who took charge of the Star Wars trilogy which saw Boyega in his breakthrough role as Finn, added: “You KNOW that as long as I’m allowed to keep working, I’ll always be begging to work with you. Deep respect and love, my friend.” Mark Hamill also paid tribute to the actor’s emotional stand, tweeting: “Never been more proud of you, John.” Absolutely. I would be honored to work with @JohnBoyega and can only hope to have the chance. We’ve got your back, John.
