World-renowned British actor John Boyega embodies the first-ever inaugural Jo Malone London gent. Raised by Nigerian British parents in Peckham, Boyega still celebrates the diversity and vibrant culture of this city that he proudly calls home. The young, astute and forward-thinking actor will explore the unexpected and subvert the traditional view of fragrance, luxury, and the classic British gentleman.
Boasting an extremely impressive repertoire in film, Boyega was crowned BAFTA’s 2016 Rising Star Award and the Chopard Trophy at Cannes. Boyega captured the world's imagination for his starring role as Fin in the Star Wars franchise, which remains the highest-grossing US film release of all time. Through the challenging roles he surmounts, Boyega gains exceptional reviews and praise within the entertainment industry.
A jack of all trades. Boyega is as much at home behind the camera as in front of it. He founded his own production company, Upper Room Productions, in 2016. In 2018 he starred in and produced Pacific Rim: Uprising to much acclaim. Although widely known for his on-screen performances, John Boyega is also a keen stage actor, most recently reprising the eponymous role of Woyzeck at London’s Old Vic Theatre.
And on top of all that, his latest role sees Boyega navigate new territory, celebrating Britishness, storytelling, and fragrance as he takes on a new kind of spotlight as the first Jo Malone London Gent.
