May the Force be with John Boyega, who has fessed up to being the actor whose “Star Wars” script landed on eBay.
“It was scary, I got calls from every official,” Boyaga, who plays Finn in the highly anticipated “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” said on “Good Morning America” while promoting the flick.
Earlier in the week, director J.J. Abrams revealed that one of the space opera’s actors absent-mindedly left the script unattended, adding that a cleaning person found it and handed it off to someone who put it up for sale.
“I was moving apartments, and I left the script under my bed,” Boyega said Wednesday.
“I was like, I will leave it under my bed and when I wake up the next morning, I will take it and then move. But then my boys came over and we started partying a little bit. And the script, it just stayed there,” he said.
“And a few weeks after, this cleaner comes in, finds this script and puts it on eBay for like 65 pounds ($84). The person didn’t know the true value,” Boyega added.
Abrams said that Disney managed to avert a disaster when a quick-thinking staffer identified the script on the online auction site, and bought it before it could be sold to someone else.
Boyega acknowledged that he got a glimpse of the dark side because of his blunder.
“It was scary, I got calls from every official,” he said, jokingly adding, “Even Mickey Mouse called me, ‘What did you do?!’”
