John Boyega rules out a very popular theory about what Finn was going to say to Rey before sinking

What did Finn want to tell Rey? The mystery appears to be solved.
As always, if you haven't seen The Rise of Skywalker yet, consider this to be your spoiler alert warning because we discuss one of the main talking points - what did Finn want to tell Rey during that scene on Pasaana?
Rey's a Palpatine. She refused to follow in the footsteps of her grandfather. She's now assumed the name of Skywalker for herself.
The Skywalker name lives on.
Well, after being 42 years in the making, we can now confirm that The Rise of Skywalker made a Death Star-sized €1.9m in its opening weekend in Ireland. The result contributes to The Walt Disney Studios hitting the $3 billion mark within the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region for 2019 to date, this marks the first time that any studio has accomplished such a record.
Star Wars continues to rule the galaxy.
Despite some character arcs having a very definitive end in the latest film, there are still plenty of mysteries to decipher, especially surrounding the character of Finn.
Cast your mind back to the moment when Finn, Rey, Poe, Chewbacca, and C-3PO went to retrieve the dagger with the Sith inscriptions on Pasaana. Ultimately, they all end up being trapped in what appears to be, at first glance, quicksand.
Ok, it’s not actually called quicksand, but hey, it has all the properties of quicksand.
Knowing that it could be the last time that he sees Rey, Finn attempts to tell her something that he has never told her before but is unable to finish his sentence thanks to the quicksand.
By the time the film ends, we never find out what it was he tried to say - later in the film, when they're about to be executed by General Hux and the Stormtroopers, Poe Dameron even asks again Finn what he planned on saying - but fans didn't get a definitive answer.
Well, John Boyega has ruled out any romantic feelings that Finn may have for Rey.
However, it does appear that the fates of both characters is more intertwined than we first thought.
No... Finn wasn’t going to say I love you before sinking!

At an Academy screening of the film, director J.J. Abrams apparently told those in attendance what Finn's special message for Rey was. Finn was actually trying to tell Rey that he is in fact force-sensitive.
Finn being force-sensitive was something that we got to see in various scenes during the film.
For example, Boyega's character somehow knew that Rey ha died during her fight with Palpatine, only for the Jedi to return.
Elsewhere, during the battle on Exogol, Finn was instantly able to understand which of the Star Destroyers they needed to destroy in order to cripple the fleet's navigation.

Aside from this, the actor previously hinted at Finn's ability to use the Force in a previous post on Instagram too.
What did Finn want to tell Rey? Well, maybe Daisy Ridley's character will learn all she needs to know in the future.
