Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega (pictured left, at San Diego ComicCon) brought smiles to cancer patients at the Royal London Hospital in conjunction with the Rays Of Sunshines Children’s Charity.


Along with Boyega, Daniel Bell a 5-year-old patient battling a brain tumor helped bring some happiness to the kids.

It was Bell’s wish that the actor deliver toys to other patients alongside Boyega.

“When I heard about Daniel’s wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true. It was fantastic to be a part of his very special wish with Rays of Sunshine. It was also great to meet the children at The Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive,” said the actor told Belfast Telegraph. 

Daniel’s mom, Rosalind also added, “To see Daniel smile like that without a care in the world after everything he’s been through, knowing how much time and effort Rays of Sunshine have put in to his wish and that John Boyega gave his time to make it come true, is priceless. These things can’t be bought and really do mean the world.”

The actor also tweeted a thank you to Daniel: “This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel thank you ❤️”
