The 23-year-old, who’s breakout role was in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, beat out four other actors for the trophy.
“Guys, I haven’t been doing this for a long time, it’s a fluke,” he said during his acceptance speech. “I’m gonna share this award with all the young dreamers who are determined, who are hard working, who are quite frankly amazing. This is also for you. Blessings for your path and God bless.”
