Star Wars: The Force Awakens John Boyega is looking ahead to some possible downtime. "The last vacation I took was three days, and even then, on the last day, [my team] was like, 'Can you come back to L.A.?' " laughs Boyega. "It was great, I was on the Cayman Islands with friends. I have a feeling, though, that this movie will cut down on personal time until probably next year, when I get to sleep."

Aside from sleep, up next on the actor's calendar is another Star Wars installment, Episode VIII, and the indie The Circle opposite Tom Hanks and Emma Watson.
