John Boyega Caught “a Pikachu” on the Episode 8 Set


And we thought is was impossible for John Boyega to be any more cool. In a recent interview with Tech Crunch at  Microsoft’s Imagine Cup, John talked Tech, Bullying, and Pokemon!

“I do have the app. Currently at level 5, CP levels are looking good. I found a Pikachu at Pinewood Studios while filming Star Wars. I told EVERYBODY. “I got a Pikachu!” I was the most popular kid on set for like a day.”


On his philosophy on acting:

“When I was in secondary school — which obviously is high school for you guys — acting wasn’t something I was interested in on an educational curriculum level. Because for me it’s not academic, it’s spiritual, it’s character, it’s human.”
