John Boyega is a face you may recognise from 2011's grittiest (and funniest) flick Attack the Block, which saw him take on aliens in his 'hood'. The 22-year-old from London is also currently filming a role in the new series of 24: Live Another Day, opposite Kiefer Sutherland.

John will be the first black lead in the Star Wars series, aside from James Earl Jones, who voiced Darth Vader.
