    A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

    We all now know John Boyega as Finn from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

    And it's fair to say he's enjoying his newfound international fame.

    But it turns out that before he was recognised worldwide, he took part in a Getty stock photo shoot.

    There's a whole album of pictures showing a teenage John posing for a set-up education shoot.

    And this eagle-eyed student from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, has spotted posters of the images dotted around his campus.

    "I was a bit surprised to see Finn from Star Wars on a poster at my University." We're not surprised.

    And now Boyega has confirmed it is in fact him and what he spent the money on.

    Yep. Used the money for new trainers https://t.co/UulHEv2hrL

    I did use my ema back then for drama school ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ the Air Force 1s lasted about 3 years looooool

    So what do the rest of the pictures look like?

    The caption for this one is "further education: class demonstration." He looks delighted to be there.
