Star Wars actor John Boyega put some smiles on a few kiddies’ faces at a hospital in London. And the flicks are melting our hearts. Peep them inside….

Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega surprised a few kiddies at the Royal London Hospital in the UK recently. The 23-year-old actor, who celebrates a birthday in a few days, came dressed as his Star Wars character Finn bearing gifts with the Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity.

John got the chance to meet with 5-year-old Daniel Bell who is battling with a brain tumor. Little Daniel is a huge fan of Finn, so you can imagine the excitement when John walked in decked out in his Star Wars gear.

When I heard about Daniel's wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true,” John said.

The British actor and Daniel, dressed as a mini stormtrooper, had some fun sword fighting with their lightsabers in an epic battle.

On Instagram John wrote, "This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumour and rather than having Finn to himself he wanted Finn to meet the kids at the Royal London hospital and give them some toys. I stayed in character while I was with this brave boy asking him what a car was. He taught Finn about everything earth related! Really thankful for the opportunity this child granted me and I'm just humbled! I hope I played a little part in making you smile young stormtrooper"
