How John Boyega Went From ‘Star Wars’ Stormtrooper to Sci-Fi Producer.

The 25-year-old actor is among a new wave of British actors, many from African backgrounds, who are shaking up the movie industry.

LONDON — John Boyega, 25, arrived at the sleek photo studio in the Camden section of London like a movie star: over an hour late; with an entourage of four including a stylist, groomer and groomer’s assistant; and dressed head to toe in designer clothes.

And he brought jokes.

“I think this is the official look of humility,” he said of his conservative outfit, which included a brown suede Zegna jacket, black Ksubi denim pants, a white Brioni sweater, a white Versace shirt and dark tan Chelsea boots by Christian Louboutin.

“This is how I’m going to dress when I’m 50 years old — as a dad,” he said, as he posed for a portrait on a gray winter Sunday.
