For his cover on Guardian Life magazine, Hollywood actor John Boyega speaks on his career journey so far, and why he thought it was important for him to start his own production company, Upperoom Entertainment.
Read excerpts from his interview below:
On the responsibility he has to carry on the Star Wars culture: Going into Star Wars and auditioning for Star Wars for several months, I wasn’t thinking of how people would respond or react. But I found it to be a great opportunity for myself and it felt like a moment to reflect and look back on myself to see how far I’ve come. It doesn’t feel like a responsibility but it feels like an opportunity.
On what inspired him to start a production company: I think my perspective and upbringing is unique, and that’s something I haven’t really seen being captured in film before. I wanted to be a part of [the] change in that perspective. Pacific Rim is our first project and we’re so happy to be a part of it and to guide in the creative process so it can be the best it can be.
On creating original Nigerian stories in the nearest future: I’ve always been interested in the stories that come from Nigeria, not just the historical stories but the original stories that could be thought up as well. It’s definitely a part of the plan to develop ideas and to hopefully get it into a script because as an actor that gives me an opportunity for versatility as well.
