Man Crush Monday: Idris Elba

Our Man Crush Monday this week is our favourite east Londoner, Idris Elba.  UK viewers will remember him from his stint on Channel 5’s axed soap opera Family Affairs. It was his role in The cult US series,  The Wire that introduced him to a global audience.  Since then, Elba has secured his place on the A-List with roles in blockbusters such as Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Thor, Prometheus and BBC prime-time drama Luther




Least likely to…up sticks to Hollywood.  The actor has spoken of his love for London and has ruled out a move to LA…




Impress him with…questions.  Yep.  Apparently curiosity inspires him.  He told “I love when people ask questions, and I like to ask questions, because without that you just don’t know, and therefore you won’t learn.”



Mention…DJing.  Elba used to DJ under the name Big Driis.  He still plays out from time to time but uses his real name…




And another thing…although The Wire was monumental or Elba he has confessed to never watching an entire season…he doesn’t know what he’s missing!
