'I was in the area, I was actually looking for a Dunkin' Donuts and just stopped by,' jokes actor
Star Wars actor John Boyega surprised fans over the weekend as he made shock appearances at a series of public screenings of new film Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened in cinemas worldwide last week, receiving both critical and public acclaim so far.
To mark the film’s launch, British star Boyega – who plays Finn in the movie – appeared at a number of screenings in New York and London.
At one screening in Brooklyn, Boyega joked to the crowd: “I was in the area, I was actually looking for a Dunkin’ Donuts and just stopped by.”
