It's understandable when actors don't just want to play a role, but want to show what they can do in a variety of ways. Actor John Boyega therefore found it less exciting to have played Finn in the Star Wars sequel trilogy.
Working on Star Wars was a luxury prison
"Acting in a big franchise is sometimes like a luxury prison for an actor when you want to do something different," Boyega said in an interview with Cinema Blend. "Because remember, in a franchise you work on a character for many years, which can starve your 'other muscles'. And since I wanted to be in something that I knew I would play a different kind of role, Another type of man, and knew Steve (McQueen), I was really curious and excited about being able to be a part of it. " Boyega speaks about his new role in the film series Small Ax directed by Steve McQueen. He is very happy to be in the strip and to play a different role.
Playing a role like Finn in several Star Wars films, of course, has advantages and disadvantages. The advantage is that as an actor you have a secure job and good income for a few years. The disadvantage is that you always play the same role over a longer period of time. That's what John Boyega means by "luxury prison".
It is unlikely that we will see the actor again in a Star Wars film. He already said that he has no plans to return to the role of Finn. The next thing we get to see anyway is Rogue Squadron, a separate film that revolves around a Star Wars pilot squadron.
