John Boyega’s Friends Thought He Was an Extra in The Force Awakens, Somehow Misreading That Whole Ad Campaign

It’s not a spoiler to say that John Boyega is one of the stars of The Force Awakens — he’s the first person you see in the teaser trailer — but Boyega’s friends apparently thought that he was putting them on the whole time he filmed the movie. On The Tonight Show last night, Boyega revealed that, after the premiere, his friends admitted that they thought he was an extra, which either means that they were the world’s biggest spoilerphobes, or they just didn’t care to invest in reading about his work. Still, per a clip from Fallon, John Boyega’s friends do seem really cool, and they had the most fun of anyone at the London Force Awakens premiere — well, except for Carrie Fisher’s dog. No one has more fun than Gary.
