Star Wars actor John Boyega, or Stormtrooper Finn, surprised kids with toys from the hit franchise at a hospital.

Boyega was joined by a very special fan, 5-year-old Daniel Bell, who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, and wished to meet Boyega’s Star Wars character.

“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 captioned the picture collage featuring him and Bell.
A young girl dressed in as Rey joined them while delivering the toys to multiple kids at the hospital.
