What motivates you to act?
The fact that, as Nero Wolfe said, "An actor can practice anywhere any time with anybody, and most of them do."

If happiness were an animal, what would it be?
Probably a gnu. A large, fat, quiet gnu, gorged and dozy in a summer breeze.

What’s the best sound in the world?
I think it is the relaxing sound of a bunch of new banknotes kissing each other. However, my agent asked to write instead something more mainstream, for example "the snore of your sleeping newborn" or "the placid purr of a lovable kitten".

Do you have any superpower?
The hell with it! I can swimming in boiling oil, but only on Mondays.

If you could choose someone to reincarnate in, who would it be?
It's a no-brainer! Bilbo Baggins.

Not to offend you, but you know that that's not a real person, don't you?
It's not!? I've wasted the best years of my life!

Nowaday the problem of anemia in anteaters is attaining gigantic proportions. Are you doing something to mitigate the problem?
Oh yeah! I will chastely sleep in a bunk bed with a fan one night a week. The profits ($1,000 per night) will go to a foundation for the cure of anemia in anteaters.

How is your relationship with movie directors?
I really like most of them, but I dream robots will replace them soon.

And now a bunch of numbers which are not Idris Elba's secret telephone number :

To be frank, my director had patiently arranged my little talk with Idris Elba many weeks beforehand. Unfortunately, I fall asleep watching a rerun of "Heart Condition". So, this web page is essentially the impression of a dream that followed after a generous dinner of beans and deep-fried bell peppers.
