John Boyega felt like he was going "home" whilst working on ‘They Cloned Tyrone’.

The 28-year-old actor really enjoyed working on the Netflix movie as he felt it was the American version of ‘Attack the Block’, which launched his career.

He shared: "This is me just going home for a bit … Like, this is stateside ‘Attack the Block’ for me. I’m just more than excited to see a small little hood go through an alien experience. Yeah, maybe that’s what I should do, just go from each country. Alien experience … in Russia. Alien experience in … China. We actually go to each country. But it’s been really, really fun and I can’t wait to start on that."

And John enjoyed having "fun" on set, after two particularly intense projects.

He added to ABC Audio: "I’ve just come off of two kind of intense projects. Chase Palmer’s ‘Naked Singularity’ … and then Steve McQueen’s ‘Small Axe’. So ‘They Cloned Tyrone’ is just a chance for me to have fun … and chill."

Meanwhile, John previously spoke about his struggles with fame, as he insisted he doesn’t see himself as a celebrity.

He shared: "The downside? You’ll sometimes get it while walking on the street. I don’t see myself as a celebrity. I walk on the street because I have always walked on the street. Sometimes somebody will ask for a selfie and it’s not the right time. I have no problem being polite. But you’re not always going to get the best response. Some people think: that’s your job. That is understandable. But you know."
