We already knew John Boyega was a great actor and total hottie, but now we can add total sweetheart to the list. The Star Wars actor spent his weekend visiting the children’s section at the Royal London Hospital as his film character, Finn.

Daniel Bell, a little Star Wars fan living with a brain tumor, was given the chance of a lifetime to meet Finn by the Rays of Sunshine children’s charity.

John captioned a photo he shared on Instagram, “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.”

In addition to Daniel’s stormtrooper costume, John also met a girl named Layla who was his Rey for the day.

Check out photos from the day below, but be prepared for your ovaries to burst from cuteness overload.

Probably busy watching puppy videos on Instagram.
