JOHN BOYEGA

This British actor played Moses in the 2011 aliens-invade-the-inner-city comedy Attack the Block. He also appears as a regular on the upcoming 24: Live Another Day TV series, and has a starring role in the indie drama Imperial Dreams, which played Sundance this year and won the audience award in its category.

In Imperial Dreams, Boyega plays  Bambi, an aspiring writer who has just been released from prison for aggravated assault, and is tending to his son, Day, the boy’s mother (Keke Palmer) is in prison for another crime. “John came out from England and pulled off a jaw dropping performance for us as a kid from Watts. His talent is palpable,” Imperial Dreams producer Jonathan Schwartz tells EW. “He is going to be a major star for a long time to come.”
