Much of the appeal of the new Star Wars film The Force Awakens has derived from its very fresh faced cast. Actors like Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were previously largely unknown to mainstream audiences. The previous work of the latter has now surfaced on Twitter, as it emerged that Boyega appeared in a number of cheesy, education themed stock image photoshoots before landing his first big gig. Boyega commented on Twitter that he “used the money [he earned] to buy trainers”. His cut from the success of The Force Awakens will presumably be a bit more generous.
