'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

John Boyega is happy to don his Star Wars costume for a good cause.

The Force Awakens star distributed toys from the latest film to sick children at The Royal London Hospital in London, on behalf of the charity Rays of Sunshine.

He did so alongside Daniel Bell, a 5-year-old boy who was diagnosed with a brain tumor and wished to meet the actor while sharing the gifts.

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