the star interview


Come out, come out, come out,
Virginia, don’t let me wait.
You Catholic girls start much too late,
But sooner or later it comes down to fate.
I might as well be the one.
You know that only the good die young.

Interview with John Boyega • Aug 18 2017

John Boyega spills the beans on Prince William, Harry, and Tom Hardy’s cameos in The Last Jedi in this interview with BBC Radio 4.

“I’ve had enough with those secrets,” he laughed. “They came on set. They were there. I’m sick of hiding it. I think it was leaked, anyway. There were images. Every time I get asked, I have to dodge it. I’m tired of dodging it. They were there. Tom Hardy was there too.”

The only person who seems more excited about his casting than Glover himself is his father, a Star Wars fanatic who, more lenient than Donald’s mother, introduced his son to the franchise when he was a boy. In fact, the first toy Donald Sr. purchased for his son was a Lando action figure, which is why one of the biggest thrills of landing the part was being able to call his father with the news. “He just kept saying, ‘Woooow,’ ” says Glover, who has since hosted his dad on the London set.
