Star Wars actor John Boyega has brought his parents - and us - to tears after surprising them with a new house.

The Star Wars sequel trilogy films actor captured the moment he sat his parents down for an “interview” at a very swanky property.

Abigail and Samson had no idea they were sitting in their brand new swanky living room before John delivered the exciting news.

No expense was spared in the new mansion as it boasts glass walls and windows almost everywhere, flooding the property with light and giving it an inside-outside feel.

As his folks sat on the sofa waiting for the “interview” to star, the 27-year-old confessed it had been a ruse to get them to the house.

“On behalf of myself I’d like to say thank you for everything that you’ve done and I decided to do a secret project for a few months.

“I’m here to tell you that there was no interview, that was a lie, this is your house that I am presenting to you,” John revealed in the footage.

“This is your new house, it belongs to you.”

His parents sat gobsmacked looking at each other and their son.

After a stunned silence, John’s dad Samson managed to utter “Is it true?” before breaking down into floods of tears.

The British actor continued: “It’s your prayers that has got this. Because the skill and the ability that I have received has been from your prayers.

“Honestly from the bottom of my heart, thank you so, so much for everything you have done.”

Even his siblings had to convince their parents they really are the owners of the beautiful property.

John continued: “It’s not bad, it’s a small token but I thought it was best that you live in an environment and a place where you’re happy and you have space and privacy.”

The surprise actually happened a few years ago but it’s the first time John has shared the moment publicly.

John opened up about his generous surprise in a 2018 interview on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

He said: “My mum knew about it, she knew I got the house, I just needed one of them to know so that if one of them had a heart attack, the other can take them to the hospital.

“Mum is the backbone of the family, she’s queen. She done [sic] the most Oscar-winning performance when he found out.”
