In a recent news break, photographer Chris Schmidt noticed a familiar face in one of his older photo shoots with students – none other than the actor John Boyega, who portrays Fin in the new movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
This blurry photo featuring a smiling John is actually being used at the University of Nebraska!
A casual shot of John in a semi circle with other students.
And another stock image of John Boyega with classmates working on a project.
John Boyega confirmed on Twitter that he was, indeed, the boy in these photos. It’s amazing what a few short years can change.
I bet after Star Wars, John has plenty of sneakers to choose from!
