John Boyega and Gwendoline Christie Team Up to Stick Their Hands in Mystery Boxes

Don’t expect a warm and friendly reunion between John Boyega‘s Finn and Gwendoline Christie‘s Captain Phasma in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In real life, though, Boyega and Christie seem to have a much better relationship. Ahead of The Last Jedi‘s release, Vanity Fair put Boyega and Christie’s bond to the test by making them play a few rounds of The Fear Box.

As it turned out, The Fear Box was not aptly named, since there was nothing inside it that could have hurt either performer. But when they were forced to stick their hands into the box and feel living creatures that they couldn’t see, both Boyega and Christie hilariously flipped out. To make things even more difficult (and adorable), they also took turns teasing each other that the box might have something inside that could hurt them.

It’s hard to say which performer had the most difficult opening selection. Between the baby bearded dragons and the rosy boa snake, Boyega and Christie were so worked up that it left them afraid to try even when there were only inanimate objects, like a BB-8 (yes, I know the BB-8 is a living, “breathing” bundle of joy, but this was an inanimate version), in the box. Even petting a dog became a weirdly funny moment for Boyega, which only made the entire experience even more enjoyable.
