John Boyega visited The Royal Hospital in London as his Star Wars character Finn this past Friday, and the photos from his time spent with the kids are too cute. The actor, who is currently in the midst of filming Episode VIII, delivered toys and participated in a light saber battle with Daniel, a 5-year-old patient and Force Awakens super fan who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Boyega took to his Instagram account to share several photos from the adorable visit, including a collage, which shows him being all-around awesome. "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," he captioned the 'gram (bottom). "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."

He also shared a photo of himself with a little girl named Layla, who was dressed as Rey. He captioned the shot with a cute conversation he had with her: "Layla: Finn where's Rey? Finn: I don't know, I got beat by kylo and I can't remember anything Layla: okay I'll be your Rey today. Okay? Finn: okay! Lead the way."

Needless to say, Boyega has stolen our hearts forever.
