The Geek Chic Elite Podcast Returns… with John Boyega!March 22, 2018
Awesome Con returns for its fifth year, running from March 30 to April 1 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington D.C. Founded by Ben Penrod, who stumbled his way into the industry by buying and selling comics and launching the online comic book store Ninja Pirate Gear, the convention has seen growth each year.
This year, one of the top guests is Star Wars and Pacific Rim Uprising star John Boyega. You may know him as Finn in Star Wars, but Boyega is starring in the Pacific Rim sequel as Jake Pentecost, the son of Stacker Pentecost. When not leading the Resistance or manning a new generation of Jaeger’s against a Kaiju threat, he also manages to find a few minutes to chat with the press.
The GCE was invited on such an occasion via Awesome Con. The press were invited to submit question and listen in on his answers. The interview was hosted by Awesome Con’s Lacey Gilleran.
Not only does Boyega chat about Pacific Rim Uprising, but he talks about his anime obsession, his breakout role in 2011’s Attack the Block and gives us some news about the filming of Star Wars Episode IX. Pacific Rim Uprising hits theaters everywhere on March 23.
