 Actor John Boyega says it was difficult for him to say goodbye to the “Star Wars” franchise.

Actor John Boyega, who will be making his final appearance in “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”, says it’s hard to say goodbye.

The 27 year old actor, who made his debut in franchise as Finn with 2015’’s “The Force Awakens”, has long maintained that upcoming instalment, “The Rise of Skywalker”, will mark his last outing in the series. In an interview with Total Film, Boyega admitted it was bittersweet to leave the fan favourite franchise.

“Yeah, 100 per cent, because you no longer have the consistency with these people who you have genuine friendships with,” he said.

Looking back, the actor said he was happy that his character maintained a sense of mystery around himself. “It feels OK, because, with just three films, there’s still a curiosity and a mystery about Finn. There are still certain things that I really don’t know about him. It feels like, ‘’OK, cool. It’s a balanced, right time.’’ “But if my name was Daniel Radcliffe right now, I’d be like, I’ll be playing this guy for years. Yeah! Somebody take this wand!,” Boyega added.

“The Rise of Skywalker”, which also features Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Domhnall Gleeson, Richard E. Grant, Lupita Nyong’’o and Keri Russell, will release on December 20 worldwide.
