British actorJohn Boyega (below) has criticised the treatment of non-white characters in the latest Star Wars films, saying they were marketed as important elements in the franchise but were ultimately "pushed to the side".In an interview published by GQ magazine, Boyega expressed bitterness over how his role as black stormtrooper Finn faded in the latter episodes of the trilogy which concluded with "The Rise of Skywalker" in 2019. Boyega points out that blockbuster's POC characters are both underplayed and underrepresented. Finn, a former stormtrooper, played an important role in the first film, but then largely dropped off to become more of a background character as the following films focused more on Rey and Kylo Ren, played by Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver. Now, in an interview with British GQ, he's suggesting that his fellow diverse major cast members experienced similar fates, while Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley's white characters were given "all the nuance" by Disney in the later films. So, do you want me to say? Let's be honest. Daisy knows this.
He went on to say that 'you [Disney] knew what to do with Daisy Ridley, you knew what to do with Adam Driver...but when it came to Kelly Marie Tran, when it came to John Boyega, you know f-ck all. "I'm not exposing anything", he commented.
A lot of fans will be speedy to agree to the sentiment that the final three Star Wars movies had some issues with the scriptwriting.
