John Boyega returns as Finn to surprise Star Wars fans at children's hospital

That John Boyega is a really awesome guy shouldn't be a surprise to anyone by now - we've pointed it out several times - but just in case your cold hearts have yet to be warmed by the Londoner's charm, last week the Force Awakens star became Finn once again to surprise Star Wars fans at a children's hospital. Check out some photos of the occasion below...

❤️ Layla: Finn where's Rey? Finn: I don't know, I got beat by kylo and I can't remember anything Layla: okay I'll be your Rey today. Okay? Finn: okay! Lead the way.

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. 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. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper. ❤️❤️❤️

Boyega was at the Royal London hospital to meet five year old super-fan Daniel Bell. The youngster has been diagnosed with a brain tumour and his wish was to meet (and hand out toys) with Finn, and Boyega obliged. The event was organised by a charity called Rays of Sunshine.

All joking aside, it's always great when an actor uses their fame to put a smile on people's faces, and Boyega once again proved himself to be a hero even when he's off screen. Indeed, the force is strong with this one.

Directed by JJ Abrams and starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, and Adam Driver, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be available to digital download on April 11, 2016, and out on DVD and Blu-Ray on April 5, 2016 in the US and April 18, 2016 in the UK.
