Booksmart director Olivia Wilde, Black Mirror writer Charlie Brooker and Jordan Peele, the Oscar-winning director of Get Out - who tweeted "We got you, John" - were among the many supportive voices.
"John Boyega was one of the most prepared, talented, and laugh-until-you-cry-funny human beings I've ever had the privilege to work with".
This week, Black Lives Matter rallies and campaigns have occurred all over the world. The Star Wars fame of John Boyega has expressed a series of intense emotions against discrimination and encouraged all those who gathered at Hyde Park to protest peacefully. All we are asking is to be treated with the same exact respect as our white counterparts.
Star Wars actor John Boyega does not know if he will have a career in Hollywood after aggressively speaking up against racism, but he doesn't care. "We are a physical representation of our support for George Floyd". However, Lucasfilm has since come out in support of their Star Wars lead, declaring him a "hero" that they stand with.
He wrote: "We got you, John".
Protests began in the USA after a video showed Mr Floyd, 46, being arrested in Minneapolis and a white police officer kneeling on his neck even after he pleaded his last words "I can't breathe". "Look, I don't know if I'm going to have a career after this, but. that", he said, dropping an F-bomb.
It was announced yesterday (3 June) that Chauvin's charge has been elevated to second degree murder, while three other officers will also face charges.
The death has caused protests and sporadic rioting in America, along with global mass demonstrations.
"I have worked with John Boyega and would cut my hand off to work with him again", he said, describing Boyega as "a magnificent talent".
"The death of George Floyd has made me realise its [sic] not enough to be passively non-racist", Boyega wrote in an Instagram post dedicated to Floyd.
In the speech Boyega said: "They want us to mess up, they want us to be disorganised".
"And know this, being on the right side of history is better than any paycheck complicit silence would provide", she added. I stand with you all, and I'm sending my love and my prayers your way.
