Actor John Boyega, who gained international fame by starring in the ‘Star Wars‘ sequels ‘The Force Awakens, ‘The Last Jedi,’ and ‘The Rise of Skywalker,’ was quick to congratulate his actor fellow Daniel Kaluuya for receiving an Academy Award.
As known, the ‘Sucker Punch‘ actor won the Best Supporting Actor for his performance as ‘Fred Hampton‘ in Shaka King-directed groundbreaking film ‘Judas and the Black Messiah‘ the other day. Of course, his industry friends, including well-known rapper Drake, jumped into their social media accounts to send praise to him.
As one of them, Boyega, who is expressing his admiration for Kaluuya at every turn, took to his verified Instagram account and released a photo of the Oscar winner. Alongside the photo, in which Kaluuya is seen in a claret-red suit, the ‘Star Wars‘ actor wrote that he paves the way for the next generations with his achievements. Underneath the photo, Boyega wrote:
“King Kaluuya showing us what is possible. This guy didn’t travel across the pond to play. If you were worried about the next generation of stars?“
The ‘Small Axe’ actor then pointed out the photo of the actor, who also Golden Globe Award, Critics’ Choice Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, and the BAFTA Award for his performance in the same movie, and concluded his message as follows:
“Psh. Look at this man! So many will follow. Motivation overload! Congrats!”
