Idris Elba Talks ‘Mandela’, ‘Luther’, Research and Staying in Character (video)

Idris Elba talks to Gold Derby editor Daniel Montgomery about his incredibly busy year. He’s starred in Pacific Rim, Luther, Thor: The Dark World and the upcoming Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.

Interestingly about the prosthetics, he said when he wore the them, he literally became Mandela. Good stuff, especially if you like Elba. Which I do.
