Like Chris Pratt before him, John Boyega visited a children’s hospital as a fan favorite intergalactic character, Finn from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The #TeamCap actor and stock photo model hero stopped by the Royal London Hospital on Sunday, as part of the Rays of Sunshine charity, to say hello to some of his youngest fans. Including the littlest stormtrooper, Daniel Bell, a 5-year-old who was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Look at the smile on Daniel’s face!

This little stormtrooper Daniel had a wonderful wish after seeing the force awakens. Daniel currently lives with a brain tumor 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. (Via Instagram)
