"Thank you so so much Rays of Sunshine and John Boyega for granting Daniel's wish to meet Finn and take toys to the hospital. It was just amazing, I have no words! Daniel is still totally overwhelmed, I have never seen him so happy," Daniel's mom, Rosalind, wrote on Facebook Saturday.

As to why Boyega jumped at the opportunity to give back, he said, "When I heard about Daniel's wish to meet Finn, I jumped at the chance to make it come true," the 23-year-old told Belfast Telegraph. "It was fantastic to be a part of his very special wish with Rays of Sunshine."

He added, "It was also great to meet the children at The Royal London Hospital and be a part of something so positive."
