John Boyega Was Once a Stock Photo Model

I’m sure by now you’re familiar with teen gangster and traitor, John Boyega. Having famously gotten his start in 2011’s Attack the Block and risen to greater notoriety in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, once upon a time he was just a very unmemorable looking dude generic enough to pose in Getty stock photos. When you have a big dream and no desire to pursue a career in 9-5 office work, a person might do anything for some cash.

But at least he’s got a sense of humor about it.

If he didn’t have this marketable skill giving him the ability to win himself a part in a multi-billion dollar, multi-generational franchise of galactic proportions… he’d just be another forgotten guy from your high school year book.

Don’t get me wrong, I truly mean unmemorable.

He’s not strikingly gorgeous nor is he stunningly displeasing to look at … with skin that catches light in just the right way and all over average body type, he’s exactly the kind of guy who you would expect to see in a stock photo. And unless you’re a connoisseur of sorts, you’d likely use one for your website and promptly forget about it.
