Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega really is a real-life hero. The 23-year-old British actor spent Friday (March 11th) making five-year-old super-fan Daniel Bell’s dreams come true, when he joined him in full costume to help give out toys to sick children.

Daniel, who has been diagnosed with a brain tumour, had said his dream was to meet Boyega’s character Star Wars character Finn, but he didn't just want some one-on-one time with the actor. Instead he wanted Finn to help him give out Star Wars toys to other sick children.

"Rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related!" Boyega wrote in an Instagram post.

“Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper.” On Facebook, Daniel’s mother Rosalind Bell, thanked John and the Rays of Sunshine children's charity for organising the special visit.
