He's One in 1,500

After auditioning over 1,500 kids to star in his 2011 pulp sci-fi invasion film Attack the Block, director Joe Cornish found his leading man in Boyega. The actor, then 17, had no experience performing in front of the camera. “I was just blown away by [his] talent and commitment and passion and enthusiasm and sense of humor,” Cornish said.
