John Boyega previously dismissed any rumors of a Finn/Poe gay Star Wars romance, but now that Episode VIII has started filming, he seems to be changing his tune a bit.
After winning the Rising Star Award at last weekend’s BAFTAS, Boyega seemed to throw a bit of red meat to the Finn/Poe ‘shippers, saying to reporters:
“What’s so funny, I posted a video the other day of myself working out, skipping, and in the background Oscar is just like, ‘Yeah baby go on!’ and people just went crazy.
But as far as I’m concerned when JJ [Abrams] sat us down to go through the script, it was a bromance. But now I’m learning what Mark Hamill said before when he didn’t know that Darth Vader was Luke’s father — you never know what they’re going to pull.”
