Idris Elba talking about his initial reaction to being asked to play the role of Nelson Mandela.
Paging Rune, and Cat, and @accol…
This has been all over my dash today. Fine. You broke me. I’m staring and I can’t stop.
it’s irresponsible to just post things like this without warning
I’m rebelling against being handed a career, like, ‘You’re the next this; you’re the next that.’ I’m not the next anything, I’m the first me. I can’t be myself, I can’t just be Idris Elba. But that’s just the nature of the business. - Idris Elba
