The actor got his first professional break in 2011 when he performed in several films. He was cast in the film ‘Attack the Block’ and was then cast in the boxing drama ‘Da Brick’ in the same year. Also in 2011, he played the drug dealer Jamal in ‘Junkhearts.

His role in ‘Attack the Block is what initially launched him to fame in the UK. He played the main role of Moses and won a Black Reel Award for Best Actor for his outstanding performance of this role. This British comedy horror film was written and directed by Joe Cornish. It also starred Jodie Whitaker, Alex Esmail, Franz Drameh, and Leeon Jones.

By 2012, he had risen to prominence in the UK and had even been named as one of the ‘UK Stars of Tomorrow’ by Fionnuala Halligan from Screen International. The same year, he was in the cast of ‘Half of a Yellow Sun’, which is a film adaptation of the book of the same name by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

2014 was the year that John Boyega’s fortunes took an upward turn as he was cast as Finn, one of the lead characters, in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’. This was his first major film and it was released in December 2015. He received great acclaim for his performance and he rose to international prominence as a result of this. He also won the BAFTA Rising Star Award and the Empire Award for the Best Newcomer.

Boyega then starred in the film ‘Detroit’ in 2017. This was Kathryn Bigelow’s film about the 1967 riots in Detroit. In the same year, he played the role of Ty in ‘The Circle’. He then resumed the role of Finn in ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’. By this time, he had become a well-known actor in the film industry.

Although his roles in these films have been the main source of his income and the reason why he has amassed a net worth of $6 million, acting has not been his only source of income as he has also become a producer. He formed his own production company, Upperroom Entertainment Limited, in 2016.

Although this movie was originally scheduled for release in 2017, it was not released until March 23, 2018. This was a high budget movie as it is estimated that the film cost between $150 and 176 million to make. However, it is already a commercial success as it has grossed $288.3 million at the worldwide box office. This means that John Boyega has made a successful debut in film production.
