NIGERIAN STAR OF HOLLYWOOD BLOCK BUSTER MOVIE TAKES STAR WARS CO STAR HARRISON FORD TO 805 NIGERIAN RESTAURANT

Star Wars newcomer John Boyega celebrated landing his first blockbuster role by taking Harrison Ford to his favourite childhood restaurant – an African diner beneath a block of flats in Peckham.

Staff and customers were stunned when Boyega, 23, who was plucked from relative obscurity to play stormtrooper Finn in the latest instalment of the sci-fi spectacular, arrived at Nigerian eatery “805” in Old Kent Road accompanied by the “real-life Han Solo”.

It happened soon after Boyega had landed a leading role in Episode VII: The Force Awakens, and before the publicity frenzy surrounding the launch of £2bn spectacular.

He told the Standard, Ford asked him to be shown around the area where he had grown up, adding: “In order to break Harrison into the London culture I took him to the Old Kent Road to have some Nigerian food – and he loved it.”
