The Star Wars: The Force Awakens set was super top secret, not many people knew another about the film till small pockets of info were leaked and even then no one was sure of anything! Well even John Boyega’s friends had no clue what was going on with their friend and the film and revealed they thought he was an extra. Such a great surprise!

“I took them to the London premiere and after the premiere they were just like, ‘Yo, John, I never knew you were in the movie for so long – I thought you were an extra!’ I’m like, all this time I was leaving from Monday to Friday, what did you think I was doing, man, for two years?” Boyega dished on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

Star Wars was major at the box office this weekend—$517 Million Worldwide!
