Star Wars: See David Beckham and John Boyega cross lightsabers

Posted on

What kind of duel do you get when an Arthurian knight crosses lightsabers with a rebel Stormtrooper? A very posh and polite one.

During Friday’s episode of The Graham Norton Show, soccer star and occasional actor David Beckham (who will appear in Guy Ritchie’s Knights of the Roundtable: King Arthur next summer) posed opposite Star Wars: The Force Awakens star John Boyega.

But once Norton handed out the glowing swords, Boyega snapped back into battle mode. “David Beckham, you have met your match!” he hollered.

Check out the video above to see what happened next. (Spoiler alert: No limbs were lost.)
